The term Utopia, coined in 1516 by Sir Thomas More, describes a society in which common ideologies and principles are shared; in which the value of private properties and money becomes abolished. But what is Utopia today? A diverse range of communities around the world has converted abstract intellectual notions into experiences based on human qualities. But have they really enabled alternative forms of existence? Reminiscent of social laboratories they are inspired by a different vision for the world, one that allows them to create a new reality elsewhere.
