“The Dutch wunderkind of new ideas” – The Guardian
Who are the visionaries who drive human progress? The answer, as we all know, is the geeks, the free spirits and the crazy dreamers, who turn their noses up at authority. ‘Utopia for Realists’ originated on The Correspondent, an online journalism platform in Amsterdam that serves as an antidote to the daily news grind. The Correspondent got its start in the spring of 2013 with a record-breaking crowd funding campaign. Since then, members get to read and share quality pieces that provide context for interpreting other news stories and the world around us. Journalists in turn benefit from a ready network of member expertise.The stories emerging from this unique online collaboration are changing journalism.
