WHY

We believe that the transition to a regenerative, democratic, and just economic system is urgent, and can be accelerated with better collaboration.

Icons

WHAT

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.

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.

OUR APPROACH

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.

Icons

Participatory

We design for mass participation, mobilizing diverse citizen groups and organizations from across the world.

Icons

Collaboratory

We build from existing best-practice rather than starting from scratch, and broker partnerships between leading stakeholders, rather than competing.

Icons

Democratic

We make our internal decisions through horizontal governance, and strive to ensure that everyone we work with has a voice in our work.

Icons

Transparent

We are transparent in our finances, our software, and our values, and we always welcome new connections.

Horizontal Governing Videos

Our founding project was to create this animation, explaining 'communalism' or 'horizontal governance'. We'd love to hear your feedback!

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.

To Get Out of This, We Need to Know How We Got Into This

To Get Out of This, We Need to Know How We Got Into This

The question that needs to be answered/asked is how did we get in this situation, facing extinction, facing authoritarian control, fearing pandemics? It may not be simplistic to say that it is related to our economy.
