Temporary European House in the International Zone

Dear Friends,

Last April, the International Zone Coordination Team invited you to a meeting in order to build a team for supporting the project to build a Temporary European House. A dozen people responded to the invitation and came to share with the IZCT at the Unity Pavilion. At the meeting we outlined new plans for the temporary structure to be built, and discussed its purpose and manifestation.

Our friends of the various European pavilion groups and AVI’s have collected nearly Rs.10 Lakhs for the project that we hope will be inaugurated on the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of Auroville, this coming February 2018.

The purpose of the Temporary European House is not to replace the national pavilions, which are intended to manifest the soul of each nation, but to provide a meeting place for the people of Europe and a focal point for the manifestation of those national pavilions. Despite its problems, Europe is today a reality and we are more than 1000 European people in Auroville today.

We invite you to participate in this project, and for those who wish to participate physically, we are cleaning the ground this coming Thursday, August the 4th at 2 pm, inside the fence of the International House.

For those who have ideas to develop the future activities of the Temporary European House, please contact us at: european-pavilion(at)

We are still in need of more funds for the project, as costs have increased considerably since our first estimate. For those who can help us financially, here is a financial account: No. 251207. Any contributions would be very welcome.

Thank you, Merci, Danke, благодаря, Tak, Kiitos, Gracias, tapadh leibh, diolch i chi, σας ευχαριστώ, köszönöm, go raibh maith agat, grazie, Dankjewel, takk, obrigado, mulţumesc, tack, děkuji,
