Learning

Dream type: Transformation

I dream of us in cub scouts. Everyday we go on a walk. Everyone is in cub scouts and boy scouts and likes it a lot. Everyone has improved and learned in boy scouts and cub scouts. We make a lot of things in cub scouts.

The Power of Less

Dream type: Constraint

In my future California, we will reduce our wastefulness and value quality over disposability, as resources become more scarce. High-tech products will adapt to our needs--featuring universal, replaceable parts and reducing our reliance on landfills and export of electronic refuse. A slower economy will mean less shopping and more time for learning and gathering with family and friends. In energy gyms, our exercise will generate power for our communities. New homes will be smaller, with permaculture gardens and solar panels. Communities will feature parks and co-working spaces. We will collaborate online to quickly respond to local and global crises.

Festival of the Future

Dream type: Transformation

The start of 2011 sees California embark on an ambitious PR campaign to re-brand itself in effort to boldly go where no state has gone before, declaring the coming Decade of the Future and claiming the title, State of the Future. The zeitgeist-defining move catalyzes the popular imagination with an unprecedented solidarity and a singular vision of unity: a healthy, creative and prosperous future for CA, the nation, and humanity. The centerpiece: Festival of the Future - an annual celebration capturing the spirit of a New Future Age, one driven by foresight, innovation, sustainable solutions and proactive synergies.

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.

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.

Pollution

Dream type: Collapse

Another day in California of 2020; broken buildings, garbage lying around, the smell of burnt plastic, dirty people and smelly pets. My job stinks: I get paid minimum wage (5000$ an hour), my job is dirty and disgusting, and I'm very hungry. I'm walking home, past broken cars, and robotic cops. I almost get into one of those street fights, but sneak past it. I put on my gas mask as I went past a local factory. I'm finally home. But it's a very cheap home (1,500,000$ a month). Life was better 10 years ago.

The California Territory: 2011-2020

Dream type: Collapse

The 2011 economic crisis led to US intervention in California, with Chief Justice Barack Obama revoking statehood for 17 former states in 2015, handing direct control to President Biden's Interior department. Worldwide drought, violent weather, and the die-off of all domestic bees caused the 2016 Bee Famine, and over 60% of Californians emigrated to the former Rust Belt or Haiti in the 2017 Resettlement Act. 2020 California is largely self-reliant based on the Foodshed farming revolution and permatechnology advances, so President Michelle Obama believes California might be ready for statehood in five years.

the smoky world

Dream type: Collapse

i smell the smoke in the stuffy air. i look across the dry grass. i don't think that we can really call it grass anymore. the waves are splashing up against the bare shore. the shore is black. it has a few coatings of- well i don't think we know what it really is now. the smell in the air is filling my nose. i remember when it used to be salty. i remember the laugh of the children and the sigh of relaxation as the parents settled down. that was the old times though. everyone's life has changed.

Dream it, Plan it, Do it: A Citizen Engagement Game

Dream type: Transformation

The text message: Vote by 5p! The issue: Regional jobs plan. Eligible participants passed previous game levels. They understand the issues and know their elected officials. Citizens are informed and involved. Counties compete for highest participation rates. Cities compete for best in County. The winners: All Californians. People interact to discuss issues, wearing buttons to prompt dialogue. Politicians heed the opinions of the informed and engaged. Concerned citizens mobilize for concerted action to improve society. Buying power and voting power is harnessed. Better use of resources and greater appreciation for humanity are the results.

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.
