“Atmasanga Environment Alliance is a modest organization that hopes to create a mighty change in the way people think. We are motivated by the ideals of our parent organization AUROVILLE; its greater goal of working towards peace, harmony and human unity.”
ATMASANGA is backed by decades of experience and wisdom derived from its parent organization AUROVILLE, a well-known treasure house of natural wealth. Participation of diverse communities, foreigners and locals has proved that people largely do care about the environment and are capable of being responsible. Taking a cue from this path breaking experiment of nature preservation, Atmasanga has designed a few programs that would take on board people from all walks of life and inspire people outside of Auroville as well; Urban Tree Planting, Plastic Waste Reduction, E-Waste Recycling, Waste Water Recycling, etc.
