Companies Without Borders

Dream type: Transformation

Wouldn't it be incredible if the meaning of corporate social responsibility (CSR) expanded to include the creation of NGOs seeded by corporations which deploy doctors to heal their outlying communities and send trainers to outlying schools to teach more about what their companies do and how they do it? These organizations would create pathways of health and education and work with foundations for research. It means that corporations invest in a trust so that this money grows apart and these programs are sustainable, enough that it provides social services that many feel cannot be sustained by state government alone.

California Communities Transformed by Regionalized Sustainable Food System

Dream type: Transformation

A future day reveals California transformed by community based economic innovations in the food system. On this day, California’s communities are connected, resilient and strong. I see a future in which our neighborhoods have a vibrant food and farm industry; we are healthy by accessing fresh affordable food; our rich diversity is expressed by preserving food heritage; our environment is free of industrial toxins; and our once disenfranchised communities are empowered to sustain their own health and beyond. Support my project Farm Food Connect in developing models, tools and incentives that enable this dream to be a reality.

Accept the Challenge

Dream type: Growth

I see the kids playing tag. Each student laughing as they get their daily run in. Much easier then doing a mile in P.E. like I did when I was a kid. I clapped my hands and they ran over. Each one smiling. Time for snack! I brought over cups of yogurt and fruit for little Greg who was lactose intolerant. "Remember kids, today we are learning about ancient China. It's time to Sumo-wrestle!" I told them. We transformed the future. I see California as a fun learning environment with new healthy changes. Accept the challenge!

The Best Dream Keeps on Going!

Dream type: Constraint

This dream that I am imaging is amazing. It could happen in the next few years. This would help everyone. There would be more homeless societies. Many homeless people die everyday from not having food, jobs, or places to live. Next we would make a system where there will be no polution. That would help us and the animals. Also, I would want there to be more security gadgets. Many people are losing special things because they are being robbed. My dream is great and with the things we have and California has together we can make a change!

The Republic of California

Dream type: Growth

Cutting redwoods for cigar boxes built the wine country. Business too big to fail failed. The undergrowth flourishes. I like our "economic ecosystem;" no room for sentiment… Cali succeeded from the Union, we are self-sufficient, and the parasites went home. Those that love CA stayed home. Institutionalization died but brought collaborative networking. LA has to live within her means. The rising oceans are stemmed by locks sandwiching the Golden Gate. The Interstate system is only open to electric commercial traffic. I like High Speed Rail and bicycles. California is the new cradle of civilization, a new Greece.

Where mind is without fear

Dream type: Transformation

California has emerged as a city of culture, honesty, nature and conservation based and unbiased society. Since its inception California is known as a vibrant hub of education, trading and culture. Noted change during these years are its specialty to use efficient and pollution free energy sources and nature-inspired designs in its technology and architecture. The citizens have to care not much about their basic needs because everything is available in plenty so all have enough time to focus on their aesthetics and transcendental way of life.

Breathing Deeply Again

Dream type: Growth

Realizing that fossil fuel use cannot completely be curtailed within a timeframe of 10 years, California capitalizes on its reputation as a green state and develops giant carbon scrubbers. These dot the landscape like windmills, and are able to cleanse pollution from cities, airports, and factories. Los Angeles, the one-time smog capital of the world, is now a paradise of fresh clean air. The construction of these enormous towers leads to millions of green jobs. These towers are shaped like giant trees and are affectionately called "Beanstalks". Children ride their bikes and skateboards outdoors without fear of asthma .
