SCI FI'S 'VISIONS FOR TOMORROW' WANTS YOU TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE FUTURE

New Online Poll To Determine The "Top Things To Read, Watch, See, And Do To Save The World"

Science fiction has the incredible power to bring the future to life in all of our imaginations. SCI FI's Visions For Tomorrow, a multi-platform pro-social campaign, seeks to inspire a more positive view of our future by generating a national dialogue on how science fiction's influence can truly make a difference, SCI FI's Visions For Tomorrow, in partnership with DIRECTV, launches a new online poll, "Top Things To Read, Watch, See, and Do To Save The World."

"The goal of SCI FI's Visions For Tomorrow is to empower individuals to positively impact our future," said Dave Howe, President, SCI FI Channel. "By exploring the genre's greatest works of film, television, and literature, SCI FI intends to issue a call to action for us all to embrace science fiction as a catalyst for change."

Did Star Trek inspire the iPhone? Did H.G Wells' The Time Machine propel NASA to put a man on the moon? How will giving blood or taking mass transit make tomorrow a better place to live? The poll provides the opportunity for individuals to get involved, spark a discussion, and ultimately vote for the most powerful works of science fiction television, film, and literature, while identifying the courses of action that can make a difference.

To participate in the poll, fans can visit www.scifi.com/visions from now until Monday, March 31, 2008 and vote for the films, televisions programs, works of literature, and the most important things they believe individuals can do to save the world. SCI FI will tally the votes and announce the fan-created list in April 2008. At the same time, SCI FI will release its official top ten lists of film, television, and literature created by a blue ribbon panel of jurors from SCI FI and the Visions For Tomorrow advisory board. Fans will then be able to compare and contrast the lists side-by-side to enhance the dialogue.

SCI FI's Visions For Tomorrow is a multi-platform, pro-social campaign using the power of science fiction to inspire individuals, organizations, corporations and policymakers to meet the growing challenges of the future and advance the idea that individuals can affect positive change. Guided by an advisory board of 19 of the world's most relevant visionaries and innovators in science, technology, design, journalism, film, television, business, government and future studies, the campaign utilizes public service announcements, educational curricula, and an interactive website to impact the future.
