Auroville is potently capacitated for accelerating its work in the world. What we offer depends on maintaining the integrity of an integrated self-sustaining model that carefully balances priorities with economy, society, and nature. Land & values form the container that holds our unique culture. Our land preservation project is incomplete posing a critical social/economic risk to the community. Donations preserve the environment, empower the culture and ultimately support projects.
Donations help secure: critical watershed and farmland (organic farming) necessary to sustain the community; strategically important parcels that block commercial development threatening the community's integrated model and bring unwarranted social problems; and preserve lands in our greenbelt for reafforestation and other green practices. We address food security, water conservation, waste treatment practices, ecological regeneration, integrity of integral model, and resource allocation.
Our land purchase needs are at a critical tipping point. Free of this diversion, a vibrant community can reallocate resources to focus on and accelerate projects. Failing, we risk water and food insecurity, and commercial incursions that leverage Auroville ecological investments, profit by defeating our integral social/economic/nature model, and introduce social ills. Great work was accomplished with very thin resource. Free of land issues, we grow as an educator and potent global change maker.
