Green Century Institute was inspired by the work of Paolo Soleri and the Paradox Conferences held there in 1997, 1999 and 2001. Paradox co-producer Michael Gosney has served on the board of Arcosanti since 1995.



Since GCI’s Michael Gosney visited and participated in events at Auroville in January 2005, GCI has remained in contact with the innovative intentional community in Southern India, sharing information on the project’s sustainability initiatives. More Info
