“When I went to Auroville in 2007, I could not imagine that my life would expand to the extent it has reached now. Since then so many people have been reached through my personal experience. I’ve been on several radio and tv shows, written articles in newspapers, interacted with thousands of youth through our Facebook page, electronic newspapers, and conferences.
As a result, hundred of rural and urban community leaders, including mayors, religious leaders, students and youth associations, have contacted to express their interest in transitioning their communities into sustainable ones. A lot is happening here in West Africa.”
– Ousmane Pane, EDE Student 2007
