2011-06-09

Aurélie Gillon was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011. She also studied at the ENS-ULM, has a bachelor in philosophy and a Master in literature from La Sorbonne. She is very interested in the problematics of sustainable development and luxury : she contributed to create Luxury HEC, which is an association devoted to luxury in HEC and did the HEC certificate "Luxury Strategies".

Auroville was founded in 1968 by “The Mother”, Sri Aurobindo’s spiritual companion. This international city is the experience of a utopia that aims at the improvement of humanity, respecting the environment and brotherhood. With both wanderings and achievements, the project still grops its way along.
