Fuelled by the flower power generation, this utopian community still tries to make a difference. But that's not easy. Welcome to Auroville, India.
Thank you, Fabien. I tweeted your article along with a comment.
"This is a very good article by Fabien Clavier. He even gives a good advice.
(One way for Auroville)"benefits and learnings" to spill over is: "reconnect with the global conversation on cities, play its living lab and knowledge hub role ...and inform upcoming planning practices."
You might like to know that a about a decade back I had the joy to write a research paper on the relevance of Auroville township model for India's urban development. One of my dreams going forward is to promote that vision. In fact, while introducing my paper, the editors of the Trialog journal which published it wrote the paper presents "paradigmatic leadership role of Auroville township model for the urban challenges faced by India and the world."
Auroville needs to learn how technologies can inform and benefit cities - the area of your interests and studies. I will appreciate your knowledge and vision in this respect. My email: firstname.lastname@example.org
