The planing board of the UNESCO endorsed international community project of Auroville in Tamil Nadu, South India has allocated land for the projected Campus of SVARAM.

In the quest for more harmony and wellbeingof the individual and collective life and environment, SVARAM Campus projects to become a unique institute of international reputation of pioneering studies and work in one of the oldest crafts of human culture and wants to manifest a center of excellence and innovation in the context of the utopian vision of Auroville.
