dc.abstract.enThe current story of our communities is about money, markets and business career. As David Korten underlines, it is believed that those are the measures of all worth and the source of all happiness. However, he also mentions that, as recent history has shown us, those are, at the same time, factors causing inequality and the growing social stratification of our communities, which have to deal with a growing number of crises surrounding them. With awareness that the traditional institutions and organisational structures do not seem able to deal with the challenges of today, we see a growing number of individuals and organisations that believe that there might be a different story for our communities - one that will bring us hope and happiness and help organise local communities in a more sustainable and resilient way towards the changes happening around them. In the chapter the author explores the concept of resilience in the field of organisation studies. To illustrate this phenomenon she studies selected initiatives - NGOs run by people who had the courage to follow their dreams to do something meaningful for themselves and their environment. She looks more closely at these organisations: their roots, how they are organised, what kind of impact they actually have on their members and the environment they work in, and if they are considered by their beneficiaries to be utopias or real alternatives for building a meaningful future for their communities.pl
