Interacting with UNESCO during the Mother's Years
- Compiled by Paulette Hadnagy
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) played a role in helping to establish Auroville in the eyes of the world as an experiment in promoting peace and human unity. This is a compilation of extracts from I am with you by Kailas Jhaveri, that relate to her work from 1965 to 1972, under the Mother's guidance, with UNESCO and other organisations that could assist in the material realisation of Auroville. The book also includes facsimiles of the Mother's handwritten messages to Kailas, images and extracts from The UNESCO Courier of 1972 regarding Auroville, extracts from Sri Aurobindo's works, resolutions on Auroville passed by the General Assembly of UNESCO, and many photographs of Auroville life, especially in its early years.
