ASTRALSIA (Street Salt) (ASTRALSIA (Άστρων Άλως))

This image was generated with Dream Studio AI.

I am already envisioning a prosperous, wealthy, healthy, robust, joyful and resilient society consisted by healthy, intelligent, happy people. People of all ages, sexes, sexual orientation and origins to live together and supporting each other taking advantage of the achievements of European technology and science.
Young people who are open-minded and healthy (psychically, mentally, phycological), who embraced transcultural diversity, digitalization, mindfulness and green culture. Youth who have great concerns of the quality of life and care about elderly people, offering voluntary services to their city and/or neighborhood. Young people and citizens who are travel-ling, studying and working freely all over Europe and globe. Youth of Europe are citizens of the world who successfully advertise its inclusiveness, openness and simultaneously respect its roots, history and European values.
Extrovert young people who are familiar and educated on European diverse cultures and legacy since primary and secondary level of education. Obligatory knowledge of Latin and ancient Greek is shielding their intelligence (SQ/QQ) in parallel with the knowledge of an Asiatic language.
International philosophical lessons in curricula and in faculties facilitate their outward-looking and their relationships. Their awareness in meditation, mindfulness, risk and security culture as well.
Digitalisation, AR/VR, AI, ML, QE, are enhanced their capacities to interact and communi-cate internationally with teammates, alumni and co-workers all over the world.
I am envisioning a harmonized European Research area where all the education and re-search European infrastructures are working together in daily basis, on equal terms, complimentary and with solidarity, successfully for the common good. I already see the pioneer results of efficient vaccines that healing citizens from several cancer types, viruses, multifactorial diseases, biological threats etc.
I see the unified cybersecurity shield all over Europe! Trust and harmonized collaboration among Member States on every topic on every exogenous and endogenous challenge.
I see the spacecrafts and all the new transportation means and vehicles that operate un-der the Green policies without imposing possible pollution on the air, the sea, the earth and the underground subsoil area. I see Hyperloops to connect all the ports, airports, central terminals of European capitals and smart cities. I see a resilient, flexible unified framework for dealing with crises and disasters.
I see interconnection among smart cities and smart infrastructures.
I see happy people who enjoy human rights and justice, security and citizens’ protection. I see them to participate actively and pro-actively and to contribute in the daily public dialogue with policy makers and central-regional-local governments. I see hubs and spots in every corner, in public spaces and infrastructures where there are able to submit ideas, suggestions, recommendations. Connected platforms are filtering, sorting and translate these inputs towards appropriate institutional decision-making bodies. Lessons in civics, that offered in all the level of educations, embedded such a culture, a culture of engage-ment, co-responsibility, accountability, synergy, empathy and collaboration. Environmental and energy awareness and lifelong training on climate change aspects and impacts are raising the awareness that us humans we are part of the ecosystem; in our planet & uni-verse, not the top in the chain of our ecosystem. Animals’ and plants’ welfare is assured. Healthy organic food and seeds are cultivated, selected and distributed. An efficient Eu-rope that implements rational use of every type of its resources. EU remain at the fore-front of protecting data security as well as privacy and data protection of all consumers.
Wellbeing, equally rights and other chance are provided and ensured for the elderly people, aging people, people with special needs and capacities. Open outdoor areas are available in order to gym and be socialized. Lifelong training and services provided in order to deal comfortably with modern technologies and high-tech tools in every dimension of their public and private life, movement, travelling and interaction.
International agreements on migration and refuges, put equal, reasonable burden on MS and to all continents. Europe is a continent of inclusiveness while preserving its citizens, values and culture. Any new accession and citizenship ensure that is respecting its legacy, laws, institution, national and total borders, sovereign rights, civilization, principles, policies and wellbeing of its citizens.
European water networks and borders are protected and its biodiversity too. Strong geo-political alliances with other continents ensuring its own growth and security and each one of its Member States too. EU does not accept ambiguous policies that put in risk its stability and unity. There is not multi-speed Europe or two-speed Europe, except solidarity and specialised screening of every case. Drawing lessons from history, nature and epigenetics, EU is getting up to speed, as long as is strengthening its inner structure with confidence, trust and collective wisdom.
European economic, financial, legal coherence, constitutional, defence and social cohesion are jointly liable. Humanitarian Aid is offered internationally where appropriate. EU institutions and bodies, that unique institutional set-up, are working collaboratively with MS and all the stakeholders in order to setting the agenda, the law-making, policy-making and to ensuring its leading role in science, research & innovation, ensuring its future, sustainability, competitiveness, and security!
It’s true, all together we can build and maintain a better, competitive, smarter, resilient and prosperous EUROPE!
EUROPE, remember to look up at the stars, your own stars and not at your past! You are my/our Astralsia, the continent of Stars (pioneer achievements in earth, sky, sea and space)!

A better place for the world.

Anonymous

In the future i see Sustainable practises becoming more commonplace, redefining our interaction with the environment. Renewable energy, eco-friendly transportation, green areas, sustainable agriculture, and trash reduction are all projected in the future. I see the world being better and cleaner. That future would be nice as the roads would be clean and have no trash.

Transformation Era

Anonymous

life in 2040 I am hoping for better changes and improvement in our government because our government is slowly ruining our country with corruption in the departments, there must be improvements, especially in health living, public clinics are providing poor service also the health workers behavior is the worst they need to treat patient well with respect and stop undermining the poor because they also need to be treated with care. Social justice must be well-implemented, be improved more especially on crime, the crime rate is very high in South Africa and we no longer feel safe walking around whether in daylight or at night, something should be done about the youth that turn into criminals instead of studying or doing something legit to make a living. car hijacking, money heists, fraud, corruption, and gadget robbery are the most dominating crimes that need a permanent change. I would describe the future as a life of improvement especially in education (fees and safe space that has no discrimination, racism, and equality). In governance, I am looking at a future that has improved facilities and leadership skills. better working environments, and job creation that will minimize crime, there shouldn't be a thing of hiring people because they are friends, relatives, or some sort of connection. everyone should be given a chance to work and use their qualifications without age restriction.

An integral Europe that revitalises its spiritual roots (Ein integrales Europa, das seine spirituellen Wurzeln wiederbelebt)

Anonymous

Following a longer dialogue in the sense of a dialogical aesthetic in the Antrhopociene (the working title of my artistic research) with ChatGPT, the following vision emerged: In 2040, Europe has undergone a profound transformation and has become a model of regeneration, spirituality, peace and an integral world vision integrating European and non-European indigenous wisdoms. This vision shows how civil society processes and the public interest economy are involved in this transformation process: 1. Participatory communities: European cities and regions have developed a culture of active participation and participation. Citizens shape local decisions and projects, leading to vibrant and committed communities. 2. Public service enterprises: Europe has experienced a blooming period of companies in the public interest. In addition to profit-making, these companies actively promote social and environmental responsibility and promote fair working conditions. 3. Education for sustainability: The education system in Europe emphasises the importance of sustainability, ethics and social engagement. Schools and universities encourage students to work for environmental protection, peace and the common good. 4. Ecological neighbourhoods: European cities have become ecological neighbourhoods where sustainable construction and renewable energy are promoted. People live in green communities and share resources. 5. Cultural diversity and integration: Europe has experienced a cultural renaissance characterised by the integration of diverse cultural influences. Artists and creators from different backgrounds enrich the cultural landscape. 6. Intergenerational dialogue: Society promotes intergenerational dialogue and respects the knowledge and experience of older people. Communities are characterised by a sense of attachment between the young and the old. 7. Health and prevention: Europe has focused on preventive medicine and holistic healthcare. People pay attention to their physical and mental health and use natural curative methods. 8. Global cooperation: Europe is actively working with countries and regions around the world to address global challenges. Together, they are committed to peace, environmental protection and social justice. 9. Regenerative agriculture: European agriculture has embraced regenerative practices that restore soils and promote biodiversity. Farmers use organic farming methods. 10. Indigenous wisdoms and common good: Europe has integrated indigenous wisdoms from different cultures and uses them as a source of inspiration for community projects, environmental protection and social justice. These wisdoms emphasise the importance of the balance in nature and the common good. Civil society processes and the public interest economy have played a crucial role in shaping and promoting this holistic vision for Europe in 2040. They have shaped a society based on values such as cooperation, sustainability, social justice and respect for nature. Europe lives in line with the spiritual dimensions of life and honours the diversity of indigenous wisdoms that contribute to regeneration, peace and harmony.

Equity and social justice: universal wage means legislation that makes it part of a wealth of wealth directed towards hunger eradication programmes and healthy living environments for populations in need of infrastructure. Economies with free competition and lower capital concentration.
