Auroville in Chennai Seminar: Towards a Sustainable Future

If you are in Chennai tomorrow (Wednesday, 11th March, 2015) please consider attending the Auroville in Chennai seminar on to topic, “Towards a Sustainable Future for Our Cities” at The Music Academy, Royapettah, Chennai from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM. I am sure it will be very informative, and is free to attend for everyone.

Here’s the invite:

I hope people in Chennai will utilize this opportunity and show up in big numbers. The organizers have come all the way from near Pondicherry and are presenting some of the great work they have been doing over the last few decades. In fact, I wanted to visit Auroville personally, but since they have come to Chennai, I am more than glad to attend this seminar and a few more exhibitions/events hosted over this month.

Here’s the Auroville in Chennai festival websiteΒ and Facebook page for further information. (Since this is a month long event, do check out the links to see if there is any other event/exhibition you’d like to visit.)
