A new effort to consolidate the city area is being made in a campaign leading up to Auroville's 50th birthday in 2018. It is called "Acres for Auroville" and asks for all of us to contribute so funds are available for land purchases whenever possible. The goal of Acres for Auroville is to secure, consolidate, and protect the land in the Matrimandir and International Zone areas. The campaign is a joint effort of Auroville International and Lands for Auroville Unified (LFAU) in coordination with the LCC (Land Coordination Committee).
