Working for Peace and Human Unity

National/Cultural Pavilions

No politics in Auroville. This must be repeated and understood; it is Auroville’s raison d’etre, and while waiting for it to be realized in the world, it must exist here first. Each State must express its particular relationship with nature, its culture, its industry and must forget all politics.

The USA Pavilion Group have built an International Students Center and several other Pavilion Groups are focusing on the development of student facilities in order to respond to the increasing demand of students and volunteers (world wide) from all over the world who come to experience Auroville and study and learn with us. Other pavilion groups have laid foundation stones and created concepts for their projects, or installed symbols like the Canadian Inuksuk, representing their country.
