Catalyst Cohousing Movement 2019

Dream type: Transformation

We completed our 40 unit cohousing complex in East Palo Alto last year. We built here because we could afford it and contribute to this community. The idea was to create cohousing that catalyzed positive things in the community, helped us achieve self-sufficiency, and served as a homeschool for our children. As such, all of the services offered cohousers is open to the community - the laundry, school, garden, tool library, carshare & more. The community has embraced us even though we're minorities. And it's great to be part of a network of 1,550 similar projects in California.

onechange

Dream type: Transformation

I imagine this one person is going to work he heads his car but than he thinks, I will ride my bike to work. Than his friend that lives next door and says to the man ''what are you doing?'' asked the friend he says I am riding my bike to work. His friend says '' I think I will too!''. Then the whole city is changing there ways. Just because one made that thought and rode his bike to work instead of his car. So one choice can change a lot of choices you make.

recycling everything

Dream type: Transformation

It is 2015. I come home from school in my bike. We go to the store and buy one of a few kinds of clothes. We recycle our old things we don't need and some of them we give away. People don't care very much about money and don't waste it. Everybody helps each other.

Plant a Tree

Dream type: Transformation

My dream is that there will be no air pollution. Every person will plant a tree in their backyard or the park so we can breathe fresh air.

Revolutionary Uses of Space to Strengthen California

Dream type: Growth

New space technologies will address many pressing California needs. Every day, California citizens will benefit from uses of space for wildfire location and fighting, increasing agriculture output, strengthening border security and first responder and law enforcement, water resources management, educational effectiveness, disaster (earthquake?) mitigation and recovery, entertainment, health management, and even the arts. The industries that create and exploit space systems will be a significant source of new jobs and economic prosperity in California. Future California industries will provide orbital communications and sensing systems, factories, hotels and even orbiting power production systems delivering products and services for the entire Earth.

Trash? What's that?

Dream type: Constraint

Every take-out box, packaging, utensils are all compostable, or recyclable. All eating facilities, malls, restaurants, cafeterias have a mandatory recycling program for patrons where there are available containers for recyclables and compost. It will become second nature for Californians to know which are recyclables, compostable, and actual trash, and the norm to see those available containers in all public areas. Also, that all households in California recycle everything that is recyclable, and have very little, to no trash. This dream is already a reality in one Bay Area city, a local mall, and in some homes. Let’s continue this dream.

Citizen Teachers & Neighborhood Universities

Dream type: Transformation

I'm going to a bioengineering class taught by my friend Kurt, who has a PhD in the area, 10 years of experience, and some free time. Kurt recently finished the Citizen Teacher program that trains people to teach California standard college-level courses in their neighborhoods. I'm pursuing a degree in bioengineering, taking single classes while working full-time. I'll apply for a medical research grant with my community lab soon. I receive a group text that there will be a pop quiz tonight. I review my notes and quiz the other students in the state-organized ride-share. It's in the bag.

The Orpheus Project

Dream type: Transformation

California will host the most spectacular singular site ever envisioned as an international venue that blends the arts, medicine, and technology—strategically designed to awe, inspire, and simultaneously heal people around the world. The Orpheus Project is inspired by Orpheus, who moved the masses with the sweetness of his music, and inspired much of the literature, poetry, and drama of ancient Greece and Rome.

The New Argonauts

Dream type: Growth

On the way to work this morning, I run over a pothole. Momentarily annoyed, I take solace in knowing that simultaneously my car tagged its GPS location into the open source city database. Halfway through my day, I remember that I need to renew my drivers license so I log onto my personalized iCali government page and flip a gchat to Annie over at the DMV. At night, I fall asleep astounded that only six years ago government relied on forms and phones for those services and proud that Californians are leading the world towards the new society.

California and the rebuilding over other states

Dream type: Collapse

My dream is that California will fall to pieces, but we can fix it. Its people, its government, the environment will fail. It's all ready bad enough in the United States. It'll do good to fix the U.S., state by state. We just need more effort in the community. That's why I've come up with the plan to fix everything. We'll start with the most visited places. We'll fix these up with funds we'll borrow from the U.S. Once the places are rebuilt we can fix the rest with the funds from the rebuilt states.
