Here we list current projects that we are implementing on our own and/or with partner organizations.
Development, implementation and testing of a transformative educational program for the development of future visions in
the field of sustainable urban development
With this project, we want to enable key actors in urban sustainability development to enter a new, open mindset ("Utopian Mindset") and to win over other people with attractive and inspiring visions of the future for transformative change. The project is aimed at people who play an essential role in the development, implementation and communication of social and urban visions of sustainability and thus significantly shape the future.
Illustrated book: "Realutopie 2050 - The History of the German Future"
In this project, we are developing a illustrated book with a narrative that shows a climate-neutral Germany and describes the way to get there. At the beginning of the 21st century, we need positive visions of the future and signposts on the common journey into tomorrow like never before. In the book, 30-50 places of social life in Germany are to be depicted in their greatest future potential, based on current research and new ideas. We welcome sponsors and partner organizations who would like to support the project.
Reinventing Society Transformation Bootcamp
In times of multiple crises, we need courageous and inspiring people who can advance the profound transformation of our social systems. We need people with clarity, self-confidence and the decisive future skills who consistently break new ground - whether in business, politics, science or the media. The 12-week Transformation Bootcamp empowers people to become part of the solution in a holistic way and learn a new way of thinking. External lecturers and guests contribute their expertise.
Information centre for Realutopien
The 'Information centre for Realutopien' creates a central internet platform for people and organizations who want to work with visionary or utopian media and methods or are looking for inspiration.
On the one hand, methods for utopian thinking, vision development and utopia realization are prepared and provided free of charge.
Secondly, utopian media are centrally collected and made findable and released for free further use.
Accompanying seminar on self-care andresilience
In this project for the Mercator Kolleg, we are developing and leading a seminar on self-care and resilience for the study fellows of the years 2020-2022. The goals include teaching tools and resources for crisis and stress prevention, developing skills for dealing with conflicts and building a supporting network.
We as a living lab
In November 2020, during the second German Corona lockdown, seven committed game changers from politics, sustainability and economic consultancy, sociology and psychology come together. The mission: to build an organization that collects and develops real utopias and supports the transformation towards a regenerative just society.
Future Council: New impulses for the Economy and Finance
Together with experts from politics, business and science, we develop ideas and approaches for a sustainable economic and financial system.
Utopian book series
The utopian novel "Utopia 2048" created by our co-founder Lino Zeddies describes a future in which the climate crisis has been overcome, democracy is flourishing, peace and prosperity prevail, and the economy serves the common good. Two "time travelers" discover the cities, companies and institutions of the future and see how the socio-ecological transition has succeeded. Currently, the sequel "Utopia 2049" is being written.
Author's collective for utopian stories
The author's collective aims to inspire people from young to old with inspiring, diverse and exciting utopian stories for socio-ecological change. The collective is in exchange with change organizations, activists, scientists and a community of readers and supporters.
We are happy about cooperation with like-minded people and organizations. Therefore, if you see potential synergies in a utopian-transformative project, we are open to partnerships and look forward to hearing from you.
