Spirituality and ecological values: What remains of India’s utopian city of Auroville? • FRANCE 24

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Spirituality and ecological values: What remains of India’s utopian city of Auroville? • FRANCE 24” – below is their description.

It’s a utopian city without money, without a government, without religion and which welcomes all nationalities. Auroville was founded in southern India in February 1968 by Mirra Alfassa, a French woman nicknamed “the Mother”. After her death in 1973, the city developed, despite being located in the middle of the desert, thanks to the work of its residents. Some 3,300 people from 52 different countries live there today. Half of the population is Indian and a fifth is French. Together, they dream of building a new humanity, where people live in peace and harmony. FRANCE 24’s Marion Laouamen, Lucile Perrone and Navodita Kumari report.
