Travel more sustainable!


Auroville is a universal society a few kilometres outside Puducherry. More than 2000 people from 45 countries live together in this society that started in 1968.

Today Auroville is recognised as the first and only internationally endorsed ongoing experiment in human unity and transformation of consciousness, also concerned with - and practically researching into - sustainable living and the future cultural, environmental, social and spiritual needs of mankind.

On Aurovilles webpage one can read that: “"Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity."

In Auroville many different products are produced organically and under fair conditions. These items are sold in a shop in Auroville and in their many shops all over India for example in Shop d´Auroville in Puducherry. Some of the items are soap, interior, lamps, spices, paper products and clothes.

You can stay at Auroville for a short or long period of time.
