Who we are

Real Utopia (RU) is an open, participatory, international network which is advocates solutions for a Participatory Society.

Participatory Society is a vision for an alternative to capitalism, centralized power, racism, patriarchy, imperialism and other forms of oppression. Participatory Society gives people equitable power to make decisions.


In RU, we aim to plant the seeds of the future in the present by organizing ourselves using the methods we believe in. This means we are committed to self-management, diversity, solidarity and equity and run our projects and teams along these lines. We welcome anyone who wants to learn about and maybe even help to advocate for a participatory society.
