In light of the recent economic crises, people are questioning our current economic systems and organisations more than ever before and dreaming of alternatives. Such alternatives are already being realized and faithfully practiced in a global eco-village, a network of locally owned communities which are consciously designed through participatory processes in all five dimensions of sustainability (social, culture, ecology, economy, and whole systems design).
Behran will share his insights on these topics based on his experiences staying in one of these communities, a town called Auroville. Founded in 1968, it is an independent community located in the south-east of India initiated by Sri Aurobindo, one of the leading influential leaders of Indian movement for independence from British rule.
Based in Berlin for over six years, living and breathing in the startup world as a co-founder, product owner, and designer, he ended up in India this year to skip the thick clouds of the Berlin winter. By the mysterious hands of fate, he ended up spending over 20 days in Auroville and blown away by its history and dynamic.
