The Utopia Project was born after the protests in Turkey last summer. Members of the Institute of Creative Minds, an Istanbul-based network of creative professionals, set up a long-term project based on the changing mentality of many protesters against the current, unsatisfying governmental system in Turkey. They asked the Young Leaders League (YLL) to help them answer the question: How do we create a new kind of self-governing society?
