I'm not in Cali anymore!

Dream type: Collapse

Okay so this is my daily life. Open up the curtains to see "For Sale" signs all up and down the street. Go into the kitchen to eat generic brand cereal because i just lost my job and is living on govermental funds. I walk outside to go to the bus stop and see abandonded houses. Buy a newspaper at a local dollar store to see in the headlines "Robbery's Becoming New?". Go home. Eat T.V. dinners and try to find a way to pay my bills. I swear, This wasnt the Cali ten years ago!

Life As We Know It

Dream type: Transformation

You know most people think that life will be mostly about technology. I mean now that you hear about the iPad coming out you get excited and all that. For California a lot of it will be about all the things you buy because of all the pop culture around you. I believe that many dreams come from the excitement that builds up! My dream is that everyone gets to have a better life by interacting with others. I really want friends to be everywhere! I wouldn't want anyone to be left out. It would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My dream is to have a society with no criminals

Dream type: Transformation

Tired of seeing mischievous kids stealing candy at stores or them toilet papering peoples houses? What if that was your house that or toilet papered? This path will most likely lead them to being drug dealers and violent gangs. Hello my name is Stanford Midling and I want to help California be a safer place for family, friends, and relatives. I live in a small town called Santa Maria and I heard that someone got decapitated. More and more kids are doing drugs and alcohol and we must do something about it.

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.

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.

Lifelong University of California. Meet needs in a rich experience!

Dream type: Transformation

My father resented the wealthy for their mobility, breadth of opportunity and network. I’m a mobile, skilled student worker. I check the local 'need feed', taking lead if I have experience and otherwise learn from others. The solution database guides teams and adopts our breakthroughs. Universities were expensive and detached. Why learn one discipline, when I can follow my interests month to month? I learn with others through action and skilled peers help me enact my ideas. I may work near dad next week, and work with friends in LA after.Life is a continuum of experience and results.

Reset

Dream type: Transformation

We are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the implementation of Proposition 245, California Reset--the day when we shut down the dysfunctional operating system that the California State Constitution had become after a generation of bitter partisan amendments passed by ballot initiative, and returned to the 1960 Constitution. In addition, we made ballot initiative constitutional amendments require a 2/3 majority. Ballot initiatives disappeared. The roads are repaired again. The parks are open. Our schools and universities again lead the nation. Business returns, following infrastructure. Legislators have to create the entire budget, and voters hold ideologues responsible for obstruction. Golden California Again!

Instrumented, global, transparent, and clean

Dream type: Transformation

State & civic infrastructure is fully instrumented, driving virtual models and meta-models that report to dashboards and enable scenario modeling of optimizations prior to implementation. Los Angeles has an ecosystem of independent storytellers that deliver immersive transmedia engagements that are custom-tailored by social algorithms to speak to individuals and affinity groups, not just blockbuster audiences. San Francisco has become the de facto center of governance & data management, having integrated its technology nexus with the operational requirements of the state and their global collaborators. All roofs are required to have solar panels but pay no energy utilities.

RE-PARADISE

Dream type: Transformation

I look out my window at "Duane's Dream," one of many citizen visions for California's future that Hollywood is making show up all around us. It flows over the white and living roofs cooling things down and goes pixel when it hits the community solar panels. I do my shift at my community garden, foundation for the "Livelihood" economy I live in (jobs are SO old paradigm). Then I facilitate a citizen game session on how to grow our state currency system that is paying for the California paradise we are all making together. We re-paradise California, every day.

California Dreamin'

Dream type: Transformation

I dream of a California where creativity, compassion and conservation are our highest ideals. Instead of buying; we make. Instead of taking; we give. Instead of more; we enjoy and care for what we have. I dream of Californians with time to paint the sunset and create stories with their children, with time to talk to a friend or stranger, with time to plant a seed and enjoy nature, with time to create and build a solar and wind-powered sustainable economy. I dream of California Dreamin', where these dreams are reality.
