This year marks the 15th anniversary of the descent of the Supramental Consciousness on 29th February 1956. Since then this irresistible, formidable power has been at work to bring about change in the world conditions for a new progress, for an accelerated evolution. Auroville is a focal point dedicated to that accelerated evolution, individually and collectively. She is not meant to be one more city, but an oasis of human goodness and improvement in consciousness.
The geography of Auroville is the base, the landing ground for the vision to take root and manifest. Hence, the relevance of the two land campaigns ‘Acres for Auroville’ and ‘Green Acres’ which seek to safeguard this geography from forces that would block its flowering and full manifestation. This month of February also contains the Mother’s birthday and Auroville’s 48th Foundation day. It is one of those ‘Goodwill Activation Points’ when we can recall our commitment to securing that geography, to making possible Auroville’s emergence into the beautiful prototype of a new world.
With sincere appreciation, we thank you for joining hands with us for these campaigns through your contributions.
In solidarity for the City of Dawn,

Auroville’s success in ecology, afforestation and organic farming is one of the most visible signs to the world of its progress, evolution, and contributions. Today 60% of the Green Belt surrounding the City still needs to be purchased.
For decades, greenworkers expected that co-existence and collaboration through projects with the village landowners who continued to farm the traditional ecological way would create an eco-zone, regardless of ownership. However, times have changed drastically in the past 10 years - “the Auroville Area” is targeted by speculators, and the village population is exploding due to mass migration to cities such as nearby Pondicherry. Well over a dozen developments that are incongruous with Auroville’s spirit already scar the Greenbelt. Over-exploitation of fragile natural resources is bound to affect Auroville and its bio-region rather soon.
