A brief history of a dreamy state

- Introduction to the series -

With movies and the news chock-full of dystopian scenarios and utopias too outlandish to be useful, we reach for a more forgotten term – the eutopia –meaning, a realistic vision of a good society. Governance futurist Corin Ism guides us through the past and present thinking on how we might organise to achieve more just and interesting worlds. This series comprises talks, followed by dinners where the topics on the table include the metrics of a good society and roadmaps to update and optimise our operating system – for both this planet and the next.

Our current level of civilisation was achieved largely by written records – by people who sat down to draw up and write down the plans that turned into the streets, norms and institutions within whose bounds we live today. This evening is spent learning from those documents and visionaries of the past. We let their triumphs, tactics and failures inform how we can be effective in the high-stakes futures-building of our present day.
