About the project Edit

A human experience that combines people who, together, know how to change their everyday lives and collectives that make a living together.

Over 20 000 km of public transport, meetings with over 50 collectives, over 300 handshakes (and just as many smiles), hundreds of hours of conversations and thousands of cooperative ideas shared.

Researching the notions of collective intelligence, co-management, better ways to live together and participative democracy.

Using a Wiki-style platform to encourage sharing, networking, and skill transfer here and elsewhere.

Producing images and writings about our journey and the initiatives that we encounter.

Working with young people to raise their awareness of development and offer them cooperative and collective experience.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

Our venture, “On the road to Realistic Utopia”, will question another togetherness, by highlighting some collective initiatives and spread them as much as we can, in order to tempt people. (Work with schoolchildren, edition of a book and a film). Our project also aims at being aware of the building of a common project.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

-Make the exchange of practices and the cohesion between the project holders easier
-Encourage people to create the same initiatives on our territories
-Give birth to a more united view, integrated to sustainable development

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

This project is centred on the platform Imagination For People. You will be able to find all the collective initiatives we will have identified on the Realistic Utopia platform (http://projets.utopie-realiste.org) as well as on this one.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

All over the world, some initiatives are promoted by groups of people, in order to foster a better living together. They supply their own water, electricity, seeds, agricultural products... in a restricted area. How these initiatives are led? What is the part of the individual? How are built the decision making? What are the interactions with the public life? (inhabitants, public authorities, partners...)

What is the business model of this project? Edit

The founders of the project will get no financial profit out of this project. Everything we are going to produce during the project will be copyright free. The project is subsidised by the supply of original own funds, by the request of public financemecall for proposals) and by a crowdfunding.
