It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are... than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.

About Utopia Today Canada

Thank you for coming to Utopia Today. My name is Matthew Griffin and I am the creator of this website. One of the most influential moments that I had growing up was when I watched “An Inconvenient Truth” starring Al Gore. I thought the movie was underwhelming. I didn’t understand the problem. Why don’t we just solar panels on everyone roof and end global warming? 

Since then, I’ve learned a lot. I went to the University of Toronto and received a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Political Science. After I finished university I went to the residential solar industry, where I have worked for the last three years.

Over this time, I realized that the tools exist the solve the worlds problems. The challenge thou was balancing competing interests and overcoming resistance to change.

Despite this I am hopeful. I believe the opposing sides can come together to find solutions. While a lot of people in the world are content to point out problems, I want to offer solutions. We can reverse the effects of climate change, eradicate disease, and eliminate poverty.

Unfortunately, Utopia Today Canada does not have all the solutions, but hopefully it can provide you the inspiration to start taking step forward.
