The association “Auroville International” (AVI) is a worldwide network set up with the aim of supporting the Auroville international Township in India. Founded in 1983, Auroville International has its legal basis in the Netherlands and today has member associations, affiliated groups and liaison addresses in 23 countries.
One of the main functions of Auroville International is to support Auroville in all possible ways, which includes the making of representations to national, international, governmental and non-governmental organisations.
Another important role of Auroville International is to act as a channel for funds to Auroville projects.
A third function of Auroville International is to improve the information flow between Auroville, Auroville International and its member associations, affiliated groups and liaison addresses, and provide financial and other support to its members and association organisations.
The highlight of the Auroville International calendar is the International meeting, which is held in a different country each year. Most countries in Europe have hosted meetings, some several times, but occasionally we venture further afield, with meetings in St Petersburg, Brazil, California, and South Africa.
