Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

To my future family,

I desperately hope that future generations live in a world that isn’t on the edge of collapse.

Dear Future Joel,

The year is 2018, and I believe that fixing this problem will the start of a great domino effect.

To Future Daring, Wild Girls,

I hope you will feel empowered by nature, like you are invincible and can rule the world. Because you can.

by Isabel Cueto

Dear future self,

I strongly believe that if we were to educate young minds on what exactly is happening to our planet more young people would feel an obligation to do something about it.

To my nieces and nephews, and all others who follow in my footsteps,

Everything dovetails and, in turn, cascades. That’s the issue with climate change; sooner or later, some facet of it hunts you down.

Dear Tim,

I promise to never get caught up in the haves and have nots and instead focus on what more I could be doing.

To the dreamers of tomorrow,

Deeply rooted within you, you have a connection to the world around you that many previous generations have neglected or written off. Trust it.

To My Future Children and Grandchildren…

It affects everyone. It does not spare the rich or the privileged, although those systemically oppressed and with less access to a healthy environment are at a higher risk for climate change effects.

To my Grandchildren and to future generations,

You see, the raw and nasty nature of the world we live in is a blessing in disguise, without them we would not be able to cherish the moments that take our breath away.

To My Future Children,

There will be stories told to you by your grandparents and uncle on how I was a strange, eclectic woman that dressed in secondhand clothes and worked at an animal rescue and vintage store in my teenage years

by Brigit West

To future generations,

I felt it was my responsibility to contribute to the reversal of these harmful environmental impacts because they will directly and negatively affect you.

To my future child,

Some of my best memories are from those summers: hiking in the mountains, swimming in the waterfalls, reading on the porch, spending time with family. I can’t imagine my life without these experiences, and nature plays an integral role in all of them.

by James Derecskey

Dear Grandchildren,

Hopefully you are able to grow up in a green world that has been improved over and over by the generations before you.

Dear Daughter/Son,

I just want you to know that I am doing all that I can so that you can live a safe and healthy life, just like myself and my mother and her mother have lived.

To my future children,

Never before would I have said that I am one to take initiative.

For the sake of the Earth and all of its inhabitants, we need to preserve the biodiversity and natural wonders, beauties, and landscapes it has to offer.

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

by Tim Holmes

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

by Melissa Chavis

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

by Grady McGonagill

 

Dear Alex and Vivian,

This is my most important work.

Dear me,

I know life is throwing a fit of problems but I know you can handle it like you handled last year’s hurricane.

I hope it’s not too late…

I am begging all of you beautiful souls – continue to band together, keep advocating and making change to stop climate change.

by Anthony Allegretto

Dear Tomorrow,

I hope this change begins to grow.

by Shannon Saltzsieder

Dear Tomorrow,

How? It’s simple. Start voting for policy towards a greener environment, use less single use plastics, don’t litter, support systems for sustainability, drive less, and use solar. You’re not alone.

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.
