1. Summer School for Sustainable Building and Design
22 July - 11 Aug, 2013 at Auroville (near Puducherry), India
The Auroville Green Practices (AGP) Summer School program is an initiative using Auroville and its outstanding experience in human unity & sustainable living as a platform for the learning and personal growth of students from around the world, interested in architecture and design. The program is based on the H3 approach that nurtures hands (skills), head (competencies) and heart (inner capacities) of students. The workshop will serve as an experimental and cross-disciplinary educational laboratory, connecting theory and application with core human values such as justice, dignity and beauty, around the theme of Sustainable Building & Design.
Besides the hands-on workshop, students will have an opportunity to explore an integrated approach towards human habitats through site visits to various projects in Auroville and interactions with experts on sustainable practices such as Earth Architecture, Passive Solar Design, Vernacular Architecture, Integrated Planning, Ecological Sanitation, Decentralized Wastewater Treatment, Decentralized Energy Systems, Ecological Landscaping and Urban Agriculture.
2. Eco-Productive Cities - Annual Auroville Green
5th to 7th September 2013 at Auroville, India
‘Human habitats essentially are centers of waste generation. Eco-productive townships work with closed-loop systems utilizing waste outputs as raw material inputs for ecologically regenerative development.’
Some of the key environmental and social challenges are associated with our resource and waste management. Urban centers generate huge waste streams which when badly managed; contributes to environmental pollution and climate change. Utilizing these resources in an enlightened and efficient way has the potential to transform human habitats into ecologically productive land- and cityscapes.
We invite policy makers, municipal authorities, architects and landscapers, project developers, urban planners and engineers who have an interest in planning, designing and building eco-productive habitats. Several Auroville experts will join the workshops to stimulate discussion about experiences at Auroville. This is a limited-capacity event that asks for active participation of all attendees.
