Auroville will be a self-supporting township. All who live there will participate in its life and development. ⁣

Auroville's Social Enterprises

The principle of willing, voluntary contribution to the building and maintenance of the city is the keystone of Auroville's economy, which is essentially experimental and has gone through many changes over time. We present in detail some of the more-than 230 social enterprise units. Many of these, besides generating income for Auroville, are dedicated to providing services (social, research, etc) within Auroville, in the bioregion, or further afield.
