We have the technology now to create images of our home world in a green age of peace and prosperity… and is it gorgeous! But, instead, sci-fi generally gives us depictions of our future descent into some barbaric dark age or a sterile, over-mechanized dehumanization or some awful combination of the two. Where are the images of what our world could look like if humanity uses ingenuity and innovation to step back from the brink of self-destruction?

Imagine science fiction set in a sustainable future with our technology reintegrated with nature to create peace and plenty for all. Imagine fictional depictions of cities filled with alternatives that already exist (or are on the drawing boards) to fill the imaginations of the kids coming up with dreams of our world as we dreamers know it can be.

If we want to build a better world, we need to imagine it first.
