California Dreams asks you to imagine the future. Will California keep growing, start conserving, reinvent itself, or collapse? We asked people to put themselves in the future of one of these paths, and then 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.
Good luck, and may those who dream most vibrantly win. In the end, we all win if we plant a seed for the new California dream.
