Dream a sound future LOGO

Imagine Seattle and Central Puget Sound in the Year 2100.
-What does it look like?
-How do you get to work?
-Where do your children play?
-What do you love about your community?

A vision of the future can be a powerful means to intentional fulfillment of a future that meets the needs of future generations.
The purpose of Sustainable Seattle's Fast Future Seattle program area is to create the vision of a truly sustainable future for the Seattle and Puget Sound area and to bring about effective and lasting collaboration among non-profits, initiatives and individuals with the common goal of sustainability. Fast Future Seattle is a collaborative effort engaging cultural, economic, and environmental leaders of all ages and all walks of life in both the dream and design of a sustainable future for all. One key element of this program area is our annual Dream a Sound Future Competition. CHECK OUT our Dream a Sound Future Blog!

Far from a standard design competition, Dream a Sound Future will engage diverse individuals and teams each year in envisioning the Seattle and central Puget Sound area in the year 2100, as well as defining key transition steps in achieving their vision. The program encourages all to think light-years outside the box in terms of what and how they present their ideas, ranging from paintings and performance art to architectural models and artificial intelligence.

Sustainable Seattle's Dream a Sound Future Competition invites visionaries to lay the path to our future where Seattle and central Puget Sound communities, economies, and ecosystems. For K-12 contestants, please check out the K-12 Dream a Sound Future Challenge!
