Mobile Europe (Mobilna Evropa)

This image was generated with Dream Studio AI.

This is 18 years old and is not in fact as far as possible. One is what I want, but one is how I think it will be. This could be the case, i.e. a utopic performance: urban mobility, or sustainable urban mobility, is currently an area of great interest to me. It would be important to reduce the ownership of passenger cars in absolute terms, or to seek other improvements in the area of public transport, somehow undermining this symbolic value of cars. In other words, the fact that you have a car is no longer a status symbol, but only a functional thing, if any. However, it would be possible to abandon this functional aspect because it would have a well-organised and integrated public transport that is accessible to all. Even for the socially weaker; appropriate and accessible to all individuals, regardless of any discriminatory or marginalised group, such as persons with disabilities, other people with disabilities, children, the elderly, employees... public transport would serve all their needs, meaning that it should be fast and efficient, accurate, reliable, clean, comfortable and pleasant. You are happy to go to the bus to drive. Another issue is the integration into a wider system and at local level, and then in a certain area of Europe, but, at the same time, accessibility and rural environments and urban areas and, consequently, some relief and decentralisation of urban environments and, therefore, some general utopic satisfaction with the mode of movement. In addition to this more environmentally friendly public transport, this would mean: or some buses, trains, car-sharing shapes, in addition to walking and bikes of course, in order to have a good modality and a culture of walking and cycling in order to get more involved in our lives. That is, these means of transport would be more sustainable, of course as regards materials and all exhausts. That is to say, that is now a dissenting factor in the use of buses for a long period of time, including trains which have some exhausts and which operate by means of internal combustion, but are provided in repair and are used at all times, or the production of new, electrical ones. At the same time, there is a great deal of embedded carbon in these electrical parts because they are one of the new parts making up this massif, which produces very high carbon plus recycling of these parts at a very early stage and, in essence, we are not yet able to recycle them as efficiently as possible. In such a way that the utopic view would be to place the emphasis on the wheel, walking and then these shapes, which would be electrical for the time being, because it is also easier to generate electricity in more environmentally friendly ways. And trains and buses, salvages and those cars that would stay. Practically all means of transport that would still be accessible to all as well as to certain service providers. So I want it and I hope it will be. This is, in essence, an unrealistic idea because development is too slow, but rather in terms of development, not so much technological, but rather concerns about the development of the welfare state and the economy, because this still works to a great extent in such a way that things are profitable, including transport, is still seen as a way of earning, which should not be. Whereas public transport and public health, as well as education, must be at the service of and for people, as these are things that need to be available to the wider community. But how is it possible now? In particular, the focus is on education, educating younger people (in primary schools already, with some hours of teaching, dealing with understanding the care of a human being, reciprocity and this transition or understanding of a sustainable way of life). This is mainly because they are children who will grow up in the world and who will become adult people, and they are the ones who have to bear these changes and then integrate them everywhere throughout their lives. The school is not only an educational establishment, but also education. Because children bring some patterns from home, this is too little. When children learn something at home, they do so at home, but when they learn something at school, they bring home and can extend to their parents, grandchildren and midwives, and these networks can spread quickly and this is what is essential for any change and for a good Europe.

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.
