We believe that the transition to a regenerative, democratic, and just economic system is urgent, and can be accelerated with better collaboration.
We are currently focusing on building a collaboration platform with a host of community tools and services, an interoperability protocol for other collaborative platforms, and a comprehensive sector map.
Our core team spans four continents, and brings to the table a wealth of experience in community development, digital collaboration, and sustainability strategy, with skill sets in tech, research, facilitation, and design.
Tools for working together.
We help people collaborate on projects designed to accelerate the transition to regenerative, democratic and just economies. We’re working on several components of a new ‘collaborative infrastructure’, designed to make collaboration more accessible and more effective.Join the Platform
our governing principles
Discovering, connecting, doing.
‘Utopia Cornucopia’ refers to the idea that, between us, we already have what we need to build the better worlds we believe in. We’re here to help facilitate new synergies, so that committed people and transformative projects can find each other more easily, organize more effectively, and get to work on the challenges of the century, together. And for us, ‘utopia’ isn’t a single, permanently perfect society, but a whole galaxy of possibilities.
Regenerative, democratic, just.
The challenges we face are enormous. Extractive industries undermine the resilience of our communities, climates and ecosystems. Elite interests extend their reaches into our decaying democracies, isolating citizens from the sources of truth and power, and from one another. Structural inequalities deprive billions of the freedoms and opportunities afforded to the most privileged. And these crises are not individual phenomena, but interlocking parts of a complex system. We need a new system to succeed it; one built on regeneration, democracy, and justice.
Systems change needs swarms.
Extensive efforts to map 'the transition' have shown that the seeds of this system are taking root all around the world. But no individual person or organization can build it alone; working in silos, divided by borders, languages and diverse value frameworks, we simply lack the resources, the insights, and the pace. And yet, we live in a world of abundance, not scarcity. When we take stock of what we have to offer collectively, we find so much latent energy, so many potential assets left unmobilized, so many powerful alliances yet to be forged. Sharing our knowledge and pooling our resources in a well-governed ‘commons’, we access new leverage in the system, and new collective powers to forge a better one.
Horizontal Governing Videos
Our founding project was to create this animation, explaining 'communalism' or 'horizontal governance'. We'd love to hear your feedback!

Save Tropical Forests
While tropical forests cover only 2% of the earth’s surface, they are vital to life on earth. Much of modern medicine is based on synthetic versions of chemical compounds that come from plants in these forests. Tropical forests are important, also, to the world’s air quality. An estimated 20% of the world’s oxygen is produced by the Amazon rain forest alone. Sadly, these forests are being destroyed at a truly alarming rate.View more
Love Is the Be-all and the End-all
Love is kindness. It is generous-hearted giving. It is going the extra mile, bending over backward. Love is so sweet. It is caring. Love can be felt both through receiving and giving.

It’s Now or Never
Spying on citizens is clearly illegal, yet the government continues to do it openly. Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, and Julian Assange are victimized and persecuted for bringing proof of criminal activities.
