In the "we can dream, can't we" category, what do you see for education in Seattle in 2062?
The Happiness Initiative, Sustainable Seattle, and the Next 50 present the 2nd Annual Dream A Sound Future Competition
The Happiness Initiative is a national project offering tools and resources to communities and individuals seeking to enhance their well-being. The mission of the Happiness Initiative is to work for a just, healthy and resilient society where all people have the opportunity to pursue happiness. Based on the Seattle Area Happiness Initiative indicators for sustainability, you can present your ideas on how you see the region in the next 50 years and the steps to get there. Think of the year 2062. Imagine thriving economy, culturally diverse society, carbon emissions free highways, healthy oceans and lush forests. How do we arrive at such a future? What is our best-case scenario?
Our contest asks residents of all ages to share their dreams and visions for a Sustainable Seattle in the next 50 years. The question we would pose to them would be: Where do you see Seattle education in the year 2062? What can we do as a community to start implementing and changing our school systems.
The Dream a Sound Future Competition is calling all visionaries to express these ideas through art, spoken word, dance, song, video, formal presentation, or other medium of choice.
