Would you like to be part of the new Entry Board?
Right now I am only willing to participate in the process
Which domains have you worked in at Auroville? And what are other areas of your interest?
Areas of work: teacher, team member, and mentor in Future School; content writer in AVAG; writer for the Auroville Today; member of the 50th Anniversary Team (mid 2017-2018), member of the Working Committee (nov 2015 -march 2019). My interests lie primarily in integral yoga, inner work, science, education, health, research, communication, and in Auroville in general!!
Please mention one or two key changes that you would like to see in the way the community welcome newcomers
The Entry Board being the gatekeeper of Auroville’s present and future population has the potential to tap into all the available Aurovilians as resource persons, in order to establish a pan-Auroville welcoming board.
This group is probably THE most important groups in Auroville, since the desk of the EB in Town Hall is often the first real connection that an aspiring Newcomer has with Auroville. First impression = lasting impression.
To be able to provide a friendly, supportive, welcoming and inspiring first impression of Auroville is the key change that I would like to see in the way this community welcomes newcomers. Another key change I’d like to see is a widening of the age group that is involved in this work, especially since many aspiring Newcomers are young people! Having young and especially well-informed, balanced, and joyful people at the welcoming desk for example would make the world of difference.
Also, since Auroville and its challenges and wonders are experienced differently depending on one’s background and approach to life, a varied and healthy mix of people is needed, to truly capture and relate to the wide range of aspiring newcomers.
