Challenge

Do you want to help create exponential impact towards a more sustainable, peaceful world? Our land preservation project is incomplete and posing a critical risk to the social and environmental technologies we are developing. Time is running out for Auroville to purchase critical pieces of surrounding land to maintain social, economic, and ecological balance and prepare for future growth. Preserving the environment we empower our culture and support vital projects in India and globally.

Solution

At Auroville, city planners, artists, designers, social experimenters, environmentalists, and global citizens join to create actionable vision for humanity's future. Your donation helps us block commercial development, protect the watershed, sustain organic farming, and preserve land for reforestation. With your help we address food security, water conservation, waste treatment practices,and deep ecology issues critical to the next 50 years of sustainable development and conscious evolution.

Long-Term Impact

The world needs a place where integral system thinking balances priorities in service to economy, society, and nature and where a bottom-up, self-initiative, entrepreneurial approach prioritizes service to community and the common good over service to self. Land needs are at a critical tipping point. Without vital purchases, we risk water and food insecurity, and commercialization that harms the environment and the community. Land preserved, we safely pursue our mission to create a better world.
