Utopia of a Turkish youth in 2022

First of all, the most important thing in all life is health. We are currently under the influence of a virus, covid-19, that has dragged Europe and our country into disaster. This effect has diminished considerably, but there are still traces of it. In 2040, I see that this virus has become an ordinary disease and its lethal effects come to an end. I dream that in 2040 my country Turkey is a part of the European Union and all of Europe sees us Turks as a part of Europe. I imagine Istanbul and Ankara, which blend eastern and western cultures, as the cultural capitals of Europe. I see that the Black Sea has been cleared and all coastal countries including Turkey and Europe have become conscious. The war in Ukraine ended peacefully, and after the war, Ukraine began to develop. Just like in Warsaw, Ukraine has nostalgically rebuilt the destroyed places and UNESCO added Donbass to the world heritage list. Europe did not stay connected to its ancient friend America, and established different trade networks with the east and realized these through Turkey. Berlin-Ankara railway was opened and transportation from Turkey to Europe became easier. Tensions between Greece and Turkey gave way to a close friendship, and Greek in Istanbul and Turkish in Athens became the second most spoken language. Armenia-Turkey land border was reopened after 1993 and armenians, old friends of turks, returned to Turkey, where they could practice their religion and language comfortably. Turkey took the example of Europe in terms of architecture and politics and Scottish baron architecture was used, starting from Istanbul and Ankara. The European Union has invested in all European countries, especially Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria, for social awareness and creative and critical thinking education. The baltic countries developed and caught up with the Scandinavian countries economically. Especially Estonia came to the fore in the fish sector with its huge fish factories. Germany has become stronger than ever before. With an agreement between the Irish and the Turks, the Dublin-Ankara exchange program took place. Accordingly, university students like me benefited from the exchange program between Dublin and Ankara. I see a 2040 where racism ends. I see that the Turkic Council has become a very serious organization and Hungary has joined us. The importance given to the field of psychology has gradually increased and the investments made in this field have also increased. I will be 39 years old in 2040 and I would like to see me as a successful psychologist that day. I hope it will be a patient, egalitarian, critical and modern thinking production. Where I live or what I do is not important, but I want to be of use to humanity. I hope to have visited Iceland and visited the famous Hallgrímskirkja in reykjavik. I want to see global warming slowed down and all people become conscious of it. I wish for a future where Russia is not marginalized and looks European. Yes, maybe all these are dreams, maybe impossible to come true, but we must not forget that thinking about good things always leads to good things. I in 2040, Europe in 2040, the world in 2040 send you my greetings from 2022! I hope everything was for the best!

A better place for the world.

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.
