About us

Reinventing Society is a non-profit and independent think-and-do tank founded in late 2020.

The mission of Reinventing Society is to support societal transformation toward a good life for all within planetary boundaries and to empower people to realize their own and systemic future potentials. To this end, we explore and develop social utopias and visions of a more beautiful world and make them tangible through a variety of formats. We see our organization itself as a living laboratory in which new experiential knowledge is generated.

Our team consists of economists and social scientists, sustainability and environmental researchers, 
experts in communication and media, psychology, and politics.
