Real Utopia Proposal Sessions. This year's program features a special component of highly interactive session, titled Real Utopia Proposal Sessions. Each of these sessions will revolve around a proposal for a real utopian design to resolve some domain of problems. Examples would include: unconditional basic income, market socialism, equality-sustaining parental leaves, participatory budgets, solidarity finance, democratic media, etc. This format will not be appropriate for all of the themes around real utopias; it will be especially effective for those problems around which there exists on on-going discussion of alternative institutions.
