2047: Short Stories from our Common Future

Commemorating the UN's Brundtland Report from 1987

We are nine authors, one illustrator and one singer/musical poet from around the world who have written a short story each about what our future will look like in 2047.


In 1987 the UN suggested we take care of the Earth's resources and hold back on pollution to ensure future generations a healthy planet to live on.


To commemorate that work in 2017 we leaped another 30 years into the future to imagine what our lives will look like then.

Praise for the book


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ by Goodreads Librarian


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ by Amazon reviewer

Interesting stories from authors living around the world and their view of the future.

Hard to pick a favorite. Each author brought something different to the anthology


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️️ by A Thousand Finds

The variety of stories is broad, and the opening story, Still Waters by Kimberly Christensen,

about the beaching suicide of a pod of whales in Seattle, which mirrors the disintegration

of the protagonists’ relationship and their very lives, packs a huge emotional punch.

This collection is a creative mix that invites the reader to step into the minds

and worlds of the characters, not merely watch and be entertained.

Reviewed by Stories of the World

We found the topic of the book quite interesting, and we thought this could make a nice

mini-series of 12 posts in the next 3 months where where you can follow us on our journey to 2047,

where we will read the 10 stories from these authors, on how they imagine the world to be then.
