Welcome to COLAAP, Land for Auroville Website!
One of the major challenges Auroville is facing today is to secure the integrity of its material foundation, the required lands for the envisioned universal township. The rapid unregulated development of nearby Pondicherry and the resulting increase in land prices endangers Auroville’s harmonious and unified development. Considerable financial support is needed to acquire the land that is vital for actualizing Auroville’s vision and to lay infrastructure, grow healthy food, conserve water and create an overall environment for a new civilization – civilization of the future.
Your contributions will help to protect Auroville – and will be an act of solidarity for the Vision and its realisation.
The ‘Acres for Auroville’ campaign works to raise resources for the purchase of still-missing priority plots of land anywhere in Auroville’s Master Plan area. A4A donations have become indispensable for the Auroville Land Board’s vital work, providing urgently-needed funds to use when and where needed – in the Matrimandir Circle, in the 4 zones of the City, and in the Greenbelt. A4A, as a collaboration of ‘Auroville International’ and ‘Lands for Auroville Unified’ is a unity action, bringing together the solidarity and enthusiasm of Auroville’s friends and well-wishers everywhere. Join us for securing Auroville’s land, the physical base for the unique vision of the City of Dawn! The need is urgent and the time is now! Read more
Тhe aim of the GreenAcres fundraising campaign is to raise financial resources specifically for the purchase of land in the Greenbelt of Auroville. The Greenbelt is a unique ecozone for research, development, outreach, and is a demo-site for sustainable agriculture, afforestation, soil regeneration, water conservation, alternative energy and green sustainable practices like recycling and upcycling. The Greenbelt areas complements Auroville’s urban zones and acts as a “green campus and sanctuary” buffer to the spread of Puduchery’s urbanization. The Greenbelt and its eco-projects have developed over 50 years with relevance for the wider Auroville bioregion, as well as nationally and internationally. Join us to further develop this unique eco-zone! Read more
