Infrastructure and Exports Restore California as an Economic Power

Dream type: Transformation

High tides flood low-lying areas while a series of desalination power-dikes are built. Most of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach adapt to higher seas first. The Golden Gate Northern Rail Dike causes inland ports to close. As a result, a controversial port is being built in Half Moon Bay, and most inland oil refineries now produce biofuel from home-grown algae. Because of expensive importation costs, California has become a major manufacturing state, exporting durable goods, vehicles, clean tech, and bio-pharmaceuticals. The resulting economic growth fuels the sustainable expansion of dry cities to absorb migrations from flooded communities.

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.

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.
