Other worlds are not only possible – their seeds and sprouts are already here. Practical visionaries are not only activating our imaginations for more sustainable, just, and democratic ways of living, but are making these dreams real through everyday practices and building political and economic institutions.

This site shares stories of transformation rooted in the struggles of lower income communities and communities of color in Greater Boston and beyond. It features the work of practical visionaries who are deepening the partnerships between communities and Tufts University’s Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning.
