More Strategy for Activists
Real Utopia is an international network of activists and concerned citizens that can be described as a “think and do” tank. It is an online library of resources, a laboratory for experimentation, and a community of people committed to participatory organizing and advocacy.
RU welcomes anyone who wants to learn about and advance participatory theory, vision, & strategy, and aims to “plant the seeds of the future in the present” by organizing now according to the theory and practices that it advocates for a better future.
The Greek Internationalist Art & Research Centre for Post Capitalist Studies, called Mέta, works to break with a dystopian present to imagine the world anew.
“We are already in the early stages of an era that can only be described by that which it succeeds: we live in postcapitalist times. They may turn out dystopic, utopic or anything in between. Through art and research, argument and poetry, mέta works to break with a dystopic present to imagine the world anew – to grasp our present historical moment so as to help radical progressive movements find a path from the emergent dismal postcapitalism to one worth fighting, and living, for.”
A Participatory Economy is a model for a democratic, fair and green economic system developed as an alternative to capitalism.
ParticipatoryEconomy.org provides information, resources, and a discussion forum on how a modern economy of millions of people can be organised around cooperation and solidarity instead of competition and greed.
