I say: If you could travel to the future, what would you do and why?

Each week we’ll choose readers’ responses to share. This week we want to know:

Many birthdays later

I would love to see what I look like when I grow up. And what would have happened to the world? Would things be better or worse? It would be fascinating to find out.

Technology marches on

I would like to do two things. First, I would like to see the new technology; for example, what would the TVs look like? Second, I would like to see myself in the future and talk to me.

I say: If you could travel into space, which planet would you visit?​

Job of the future

I would try to find out what kind of job I am doing. At the moment, I don’t know what type of career I should choose. Things would become much easier if I knew what I would be doing in the future. Then, I could work harder towards achieving that goal.

Lee Tsz-ching, 12, St Francis’ Canossian College

STEM in the future

It would be so cool to check out the development of technology and medical research. For example, have scientists found a cure for cancer? Has artificial intelligence taken over the world? Also, has climate change made Earth a place where humans cannot live any more?

Spencer Ng Chit-hin, 11, PLK Ma Kam Ming College

I say: If I could be any emotion, I would be ...

The state of climate change

I would like to time travel to 2068 – exactly 50 years from now – to see how Earth is doing. Has it been badly affected by global warming? I would bring a camera and take photos for my “Save the World” presentation. Travelling to the future would be such a wonderful experience.

A mirror in time

I would like to see what I will be doing in my daily life. I am curious to know what my job will be and if I like it. I also want to know whether I will be happy or sad. I hope I can travel to the future and see that I am happy!

Tam Man-yee, 17, POH 80th Anniversary Tang Ying Hei College

I say: My biggest fear is …

New stories

I would like to chat with myself and see what I am doing. I would also like to read some new books. I wonder what the great detective, Sherlock Holmes, would be up to in future shows and stories. Maybe he is doing something different!

What’s more, I would like to chat with my younger brother when he grows up to be a teenager. Right now, he is too young to talk to me and he does not understand my situation. So, if I could talk to him when he is older, I could tell him a lot of stories and he could share more about himself, too. I am sure we would have a lot of fun!

Next week’s question is:

If I could meet any famous person from the past, I would meet ...
