Welcome to TOPIA
Where anything goes – as long as it’s good
Welcome to the mashup world of TOPIA: a kaleidoscopic new positive impact magazine exploring culture, nature, travel and design, and how they intertwine. Our mission is to inspire A World of Good by spotlighting the remarkable people – and creatures – keeping the planet cool.
As a values-driven creative content provider and impact network, we spark positive change by engaging creative, curious and downright perplexed minds in what’s important. Because…
Follow your curiosity. Click the Rabbit Hole button on every page for different inspirational stories from the margins to the mainstream.
A richly representative place where different voices – including those from nature – can tell their story, TOPIA is packed with matters that impact everyone from design to conservation. It’s for anyone who wants to be inspired by good stories. We like to say it’s a place “where anything goes – as long as it’s good”.
Consider TOPIA your portal into a creative wonderland of anarchic joy, with alchemy inspired by the impossibility-denying and multicoloured mind-melt that is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
is Lewis Carroll meets Tina Fey in the canteen at National Geographic. It’s a multicoloured cabinet of curiosities, where diverse voices report from the world’s wildest edges.
The Rabbit Hole
Like a magical mystery tour of weird and wonderful stories from our extraordinary world in metamorphosis, TOPIA is a great place to get lost.
The joy is in the mix. Although we are happy to guide you around our wild wonderland, feel free to choose your own adventure. Click on the Rabbit Hole randomiser at the top and bottom of the page – as many times as you like – to be inspired by a different feature each time.
Like nature, TOPIA changes theme with the seasons, each providing a romp through unique tales that tap into the very thrill of being alive. Season 01 kicked off in March 2022 with a Big Bang and Season 02 continues to crack life’s mysteries in The Egg. Season 03 launches Spring 2023.
We are committed to making you fall in love with planet Earth.
The world is in rehab. Planet Earth is in mid-redesign – getting reinvented, rewilded, and regenerated from ground up. Curiouser and curiouser, we’re learning to overcome our addictions and transform it all: from what we farm, eat, and wear; to how we power our homes, travel, and run our lives.
We might be overstretched, overproduced, overwhelmed. But we’re not over tomorrow.
As author Matt Haig says: “Reading makes the world better. It is how humans merge. How minds connect. Dreams. Empathy. Understanding. Escape. Reading is love in action.”

What’s so good about this?
Everything featured on TOPIA has a ‘What’s so good about this?’ box to help us think differently, quizzically. We encourage everyone to explore your mind as much as the planet, to follow your curiosity, to question the status quo, to adventure into the wilderness.
