Welcome to Real Utopia:
Foundation for a Participatory Society

Participatory Society is a vision for a completely different world, offering an alternative to capitalism, state politics, racism and patriarchy that gives people equitable power to make decisions. We believe a truly participatory society will generate environmental sustainability and international peace.

There are a number of ways in which you can use this site and/or support this project. 


You can simply access the information on participatory theory, vision and strategy - including our Introductory Package, for beginners - as well as the recommended complementary and background material.


However, if you would like to get more involved then there are a number of options for you. You can become a member of our Network. Members who want to get more involved can also apply to join a Team or initiate or join a Project. You can also support this project by making a financial donation


Before doing any of the above, however, please first read our We Have a Dream! and Is Real Utopia for You? statements. We are also more than happy to receive feedback. We look forward to hearing from you...
