Auroville Education Survey (1968-2013)

Auroville is an experimental community aspiring towards the evolution of consciousness in light of the revered Indian yogi, philosopher and revolutionary Sri Aurobindo’s Integral Yoga. His spiritual collaborator, The Mother, founded the international township in southeast India in 1968, with the endorsement of the Government of India and UNESCO. Approaching its 50th anniversary, Auroville is the largest intentional community in the world.1

The Mother wrote and spoke extensively about ‘Integral Education,’2 education in the context of the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo, and encouraged its development in Auroville, in which it remains a foundational and aspired-towards concept and practice.3 Hundreds of youth have been raised and educated in the community, and this survey sought to reveal the influence and characteristics of their unique upbringing, as well as to give voice to any suggestions they may have for the future of Auroville’s educational processes.
