Stories From the Future: Village Life Re-Imagined in 2050

Fast forward almost 200 years, in the year 2050, nestled in a lush green valley surrounded by rolling hills, lies a visionary community.

Stories From the Future: A Fashion Rebel’s Journey from Trash to Treasures

My work is not just about creating something to wear, but something with meaning, something that adds value to this otherwise meaningless world. I live to create stylish fashion pieces that defy convention. My “beauties from blemishes”, I want my designs to be more than just pretty clothes.

Sustainable Futures Begin with Synthesis of the Self

“Distraction by design” means that we are constantly being pulled away from our authentic experiences and connections and find ourselves in a vicious cycle of disconnection and loneliness, leaving us constantly searching for ways to feel fulfilled and connected, only to be met with more products and services that promise to do just that, but only further perpetuate the cycle of separation.

Stories From the Future: Life with Gilo

My parents told me about the days before DITAs – when they had schools. They said that they had to leave home every morning and sit in a building for up to eight hours at the same table and chair.

I don’t think it worked very well, because from what I can see, people made a lot of wrong decisions about life on this planet. Now, we have so many things to fix.

In 2050, the world is now a vastly different place. We are still trying to undo much of what was in the making decades ago.

Stories From the Future: Struggle in the City

I remember the stories my grandparents used to tell me about how life used to be before the world changed. They would talk about how the weather used to be and how much they miss the good old days. They had four different seasons and they would get different fruits and vegetables that would only grow in those seasons. My grandmother used to just wait for summer for her favourite mangoes. Now, we’re lucky if we get anything to eat. There was always enough food to go around. That was a long time ago, before everything got so hot and dry.
