Conversations About the Future

What kind of future are you imagining? What kind of future do you want to live in? What future do you want to avoid? The goal of The Tomorrow Project is to have conversations about the future so that we can make that future better. If we want to imagine a better future and then build it then we need to change the story we are telling ourselves about the future we want to live in.  Join us in exploring the kind of future we want to work toward together – through fact-based, science-based fiction and video conversations.

The Tomorrow Project Anthology – Cautions, Dreams & Curiosities


These magic visions from The Tomorrow Project and the ones contained in this anthology have the power to shape our future. This collection brings together tomorrows from a wide range of ages and nationalities. We have contributions from world famous scientists and hardworking students. Some are written by New York Times Bestselling authors while most are from average people with a passion for tomorrow. Each captures a vision for the future, some sought after and some to be avoided. Each is a little piece of magic, a hope, a first step. Always remember: You can change the future.

  • I read and was intrigued by Benjamin Hylak's story "Bread". The idea of creating a mini-ecosystem to create your own personal sustainable food supply probably isn't new, but his take on it was clever and creative. I was really excited to see a small-scale version of the type of system he described in an Uncommon Goods gift catalog. The AquaFarm is a double decker aquarium and hydro-garden!
