Dream of the future and write
a short story about it.

I believe that human beings are capable of immense good, and it is within our power to change our past mistakes.

“I think we have to design or look ahead and dream of a future and then we get on with making it happen.” — David Suzuki

When I saw David Suzuki interviewed on the Australian TV show, “Can We Help” in February this year (2011), I thought about his words for a long time and came up with the idea for this competition.

Write a short story
set 100 years in the future

Enter the competition to tell the world what kind of future you want for our children’s children. See full details on the Competition page.


Any Suggestions? Leave a comment and tell us what they are.

    Ooh! It’s YOUR competition!! I read that post this morning while I was running late for work. LOL. Now that I’m rereading it, I see what you’re doing. What a great idea.

    Ooo! Will you be entering? Maybe it’ll be world ruled by cats!

    • Jude says:

      Maybe it will — Cat humanoids who keep us as pets? What would they do about global warming? I won’t be entering, it’s my competition, but I am really going to have some fun helping judge the entries and seeing the winners published on my web site.
