Utopic Club

Idea: A community where it’s cool to discuss:

  • ๐ŸŒŽ Changing the world.
  • ๐Ÿš€ Ideas for new inventions.
  • ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ”ฌ Science that saves lives.
  • ๐Ÿ’ธ Maximizing effective altruism.

Motto: “A friendly place to talk about serious ideas.”

Let’s create the modern Socrates School.

There have been so many great groups of thinkers, writers, and artists in history:

Problem: Too many of the world’s smartest people are pessimists.

  • It’s easy to predict that an ambitious project will fail.

Solution: Make it cool to be an Ambitious Optimist.

Key: Meet in person as much as possible.

Our People: Ambitious Optimists

Our Enemy: Cynics

Vision: Create a Pax Internet.

  • Organize a powerful movement to spread peace and prosperity to all.

Why: Launch the Utopic movement!

  • Ambitious Optimists make their part of the world more utopic.
    • Utopic Live brings utopic people together in person.
    • Utopic Club organizes a community of utopic people.
    • Utopic Show spotlights utopic people and projects.

Utopic Club is one of my solutions to The Worldโ€™s Biggest Problems.

  • This idea is a work-in-progress. If youโ€™d like to riff on it, hit me up @neilthanedar on Twitter.
