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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Family and education

Dream type: Growth

We all would be one big family working together to make this world a better place. We all would be educated - we all would be doctors and vets and more. We all would be friends and family, we all would care for our world and stop fighting to make it a better place for all of us. We also would still have some fun making our world the best. As you can see that the future i am thinking of. Thank you, California Dreams.

The Open Source School

Dream type: Transformation

Before heading to the lab I search online for TOSSers, the approximately 11.3 million refugees of K-12 schools and ivory towers/strip malls who form The Open Source learning network ("no idea excluded/no individual standardized"). Diagnostic fractals of the TOSS knowledge base look like an expanding coral reef Dr. Seuss drew with his toes. If you can find a guide to take you on, collaborate on a Purposeful Goal, and ask you the right Question(s), you're in. Welcome to the search for big ideas among every person, experience and document in existence. California is now a state of mind.

The REAL internet of things! The intelligent underground pipline.

Dream type: Transformation

I've got to get my widgets to market! I load them onto an intelligent, autonomous vehicle which ferries them to The Pipeline hub - an underground "cargo superhighway" which connects the world the way the internet connected us electronically. The products are loaded into a pod, propelled magnetically to a distribution center outside the city which has its own terminal. There the widgets are divided and combined with other widgets and sent on their way, autonomously, to depots around the region. Highways are clearer, the air cleaner. Californian companies manufacture and export the machinery, and generate billions in revenue.
