Auroville population: 2,095 people from 43 nations.

“Now that Matrimandir is complete, we must bend our energies to build the township that the Mother envisaged as a galaxy divided into four zones – residential, cultural, industrial and international – to house a population of 50,000.”

“The Governing Board decided to entrust the Working Committee of the Residents’ Assembly with the responsibility for initiating project proposals for developing Auroville’s infrastructure that are to be funded by the Central Government’s Five Year Plan grants.”

“An issue of major concern to the residents was a scurrilous and biased news item on Auroville broadcast by the BBC World Service during the month of May 2008.”

“To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the founding of Auroville on 28th February 2008, UNESCO’s Executive Board passed a resolution inviting its Director-General to take all appropriate steps to reinforce the association of UNESCO, and in particular it’s Culture Sector, with Auroville.”
