“Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophesy of what you shall at last unveil”.
- James Allen
For the last several years, those of us involved in Future We Want have nurtured the idea that asking people to envision a sustainable world will give us all a much better chance of creating it. We are asking everyone, at every level of society, to submit their visions for a positive future; how we can achieve and sustain abundance and a good quality of life for all. Share your dreams, be a part of a global community of change-makers and we will present your voice at Rio+20.
We want to get to know you, find out what matters to you and what you dream about. In order to do this we ask you to answer one or all of the questions below. To bring your thoughts and ideas to life, we encourage you to be as visual as possible. Send us art work, photography, drawings or videos (see the instructions below). Here are some questions to get you started:
1. Your Home
Imagine standing in your home in 2030 with the experience of fulfillment and peace of mind, living a life you love, for yourself and your family. What does it look like? What makes the biggest difference to your quality of life?
2. Your Community
What things do you love most about your community today and want to see continue in the future? What would you like to change? Does it have a color or what image(s) can you see?
3. Your World
Imagine that you have an opportunity to speak to the 7 billion people on the planet with their undivided attention. What message or words of wisdom would you like to share with them? (You can also choose to express your answer visually.)
