Fed up with city life, climate activists Isabelle Fremeaux and John Jordan set out across Europe in search of Utopian communities. They journeyed for seven months across Europe to investigate and experience examples of post-capitalist living. This resulted in a book-film about Utopian communities in Europe, Les Sentiers de l'Utopie.

Jordan will give a public lecture-performance about this project at Tolhuistuin in the IJzaal on October 15.

“We had had enough of our lives in London: a couple in a flat, constantly staring at computer screens, always hooked into the internet, never using our hands to make things, consuming too much energy, and working too hard. Despite being activists in the direct action ecological justice movements, we felt there was a chasm between our words and our deeds. Our protests had always been models of non-hierarchical, ecological life – reclaim the streets parties, the rebel clown army, summit mobilizations, and so on – but they were just temporary, cracks in capitalism that closed up as soon as we returned home. We wanted to find a way to change our lives radically, despite capitalism.”
