Current leaders of the sustainable society movement, from Naomi Klein to Rob Hopkins, have incorporated ecotopian narrative into their social change strategy. Rob Hopkins's Transition Initiative, for example, trains activists to use ecotopian narrative to imagine a better, sustainable life for their communities.
