MAGC Course Practicum in Auroville, India

January 7, 2016

The annual Sustainable Development Practicum’s trip to Auroville (located in southern India, less than 10 kilometers away from Pondicherry) allows students accompanied by Professor Talcott to participate in a month-long practical exploration of the themes they’ve discussed in class, revolving around how communication works and can be improved upon in the world of sustainable development.

During the trip, students regularly update a class blog with their thoughts on the trip and a sense of how their approaches towards the region and the issues at hand are evolving over the course of their stay. Posts include reevaluations of life in the Western world and of how democratic societies best thrive, as well as discussions of other organizations that are working towards sustainability within the region.
