Comm4unity Course

November 10, 2017

We are excited to announce that YouthLink will host a Comm4unity course in March 2018! We invite youth to come for a six weeks course on personal, social, environmental and planetary development.

 

 

 

 

About

 

The idea to conduct another EDE, titled Comm4unity in Auroville, was born out of our experience and inspiration from our previous course conducted a year earlier. We had worked with youth and older mentors to design and implement a 5 week course exploring the dimensions of Social, Ecology, Economy and Worldview in Auroville.

 

The Comm4unity course was titled based on the Auroville ideal of human unity and collective evolution, therefore inviting people “to come for unity”. We gained knowledge and practice from the previous course that we have incorporated when designing this one, with a few adjustments. An exploration of the Head, Heart and Hand: time in the morning for introspective exploration, following by brief theory, and afternoons reversed for hands on do it yourself construction. 

 

Comm4unity is an experimental course designed by young people for young people. It hopes to explore and embody human unity in diversity at its fullest by including Auroville youth, bioregional youth and international youth in the same learning space. 

 

 

 

Vision

 

Comm4unity is a 6 weeks course with the following aims: 

  • Self-discovery, community building, youth empowerment, DIY (Do It Yourself) & DIYT (Do It Yourself Together) creations and diving deep into sustainable as well as conscious community living.

  • Discover the cultural heritage and richness of the Indian subcontinent.

  • Experience one of the world’s largest & oldest Intentional Communities: Auroville.

  • Engage in personal self-exploration and worldview by examining our connection to self and place.

  • Experience with various ecological solutions for sustainable living.

  • Explore the diversity of over 50 nationalities and the ideal of human unity.

  • Empower youth by building capacities as future trainers.
