Developing a clear vision, a fairer world, a utopia, is done slowly, over time, with care, commitment, courage and creativity. Jess Scully has travelled the world, exploring the many ways people of imagination are grasping the mettle to reshape our world into a fairer and more sustainable place. How can we help? In Glimpses of Utopia, Jess counts the ways.
