AWARE's Programs

Facilitating Human Unity

AWARE’s multi-faceted program serves as a dynamic conduit for building bridges, fostering communication, and advancing human unity within and beyond the physical borders of Auroville. Rooted in purpose, our program consists of five core components. From Community Engagement, which celebrates knowledge sharing and collaboration, to Event Organization, catalyzing dialogue and insights, and Working Group Advisory, ensuring alignment with Auroville’s varied initiatives, each facet enriches the collective. Network Arrangements and Media Engagement further enhance connectivity and outreach. AWARE’s program is the blueprint for unity, connecting voices, visions, and endeavors, propelling the dream of human oneness into reality.

  3. Communication Sessions: AWARE understands the importance of open and meaningful communication. Our regular communication sessions, organized by zone and demography, provide a dedicated avenue for residents to engage in in-depth discussions, express their perspectives, and stay informed about community developments. Our initiatives like New Way are part of this communication sessions.
