Auroville International meeting in Bhubaneswar, 1-6 February 2010

Home > Organisation & Credentials > Auroville International > AVI meeting in Orissa
1 st to 6 th February 2010

Auroville International is organising a meeting in Bhubaneswar, Orissa and invites Aurovilians to come along. The meeting will be an opportunity to present Auroville to local people and to learn more about this beautiful region of India. This is planned to be the first of many visits to Indian states. We invite anyone who would like to come and participate, particularly those who would like to help present Auroville.

We will stay in the beautiful Mayfair Lagoon hotel in Bhubaneswar, for which we have negotiated a very special rate. There will be two days of presentations to local people and visits to some of the most beautiful temples of North India, including the famous Jagannath and Konark Sun temples.

The cost will be Rs 20,000 for the event and about Rs 10,000 for the air fare. There is a big saving for anyone who would like to go by train. There is some limited funding available for Aurovilians who would like to come and help us, but cannot afford the cost.
