The California Dreams contest asked all of us to imagine the future. Will California keep growing, start conserving, reinvent itself, or collapse? We then asked people to put themselves in the future of one of these paths, and then to show us what a day in their life would look like and how they would live in this new world.

Why do we care? Because California is in crisis. Because pioneers with brilliant ideas live here. Because dreaming the future can change the future.
