Send a Letter Confirm Email

Think of a young person for whom you care deeply– your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, or your future child not yet born.

Now imagine it is the year 2050. That child is grown up and raising a family of their own. They open their email and find a message from you, written in the year 2017.

The message tells them how you grappled with the idea of climate change and how you stepped up, as their responsible and loving parent, grandparent, or friend to leave them a safe and healthy place to raise their own family.

Write that message today. We will make that message available for future generations to read in the years 2030 and 2050.

Thank you so much for contributing a message to We hope that your message will improve public awareness and increase individual motivation to act on climate change. We also seek to preserve the messages for future research and understanding by future generations.

As part of the archive, we are working to set up a time capsule of messages that we will make available to the writer and recipients in 2050.
