To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

The gift for next generation,

In 2017, the U.S country got a lot of natural disasters because of climate change. Most of scientist commonly included that those natural disasters were brought by active people productions. To save the world and create a good environment for next generations, right now, we have to do some good things to make the earth clearly day by day. For me, to save the big world, perhaps, we should change

People are taking advantage of the freedom of speech right and utilizing that platform to speak out against global warming.

Dear Niece,

Your father and I grew up in a beautiful county and we were blessed to be able to breath fresh and clean air, have beaches close to our house, be surrounded by amazing tall redwood trees, and be able to walk through the enormous forest. This place is called Humboldt and we will forever cherish how it has continue to provide such a unique scenery but a few things have

Recently I have come to know about how much of an impact climate change is having on us, so I want to write this letter in hope that your future would not lose much of what we have now.

Dear stranger,

This is year 2018. Recently I have come to know about how much of an impact climate change is having on us, so I want to write this letter in hope that your future would not lose much of what we have now. In 2050, it is expected to have temperature anomaly at 1.7 degrees C, which is 0.6 degrees higher than at the moment. By that time, a lot

The little things can make a big difference.

Dear Future Generations and future grandchildren,

It is your job to keep this planet a save and healthy environment to live in and it is important to take care of it. I will provide important information that can help earth and all of you whom live in it! You can help take care of the earth by recycling. Avoid using plastic bags and bottles, and recycle any plastic you do use. Walk or ride your bike when you can and

Now you’re probably wondering, what can I do to make this planet a better place? You can start by using your voice. Vote for leaders and policies that push towards a greener planet, eat a vegan diet (or eat less beef), carpool with your friends, family, co-workers, reduce the amount of plastic you use, use public transportation, and realize you’ve been given one life and one planet, so take care of it.

To the future,

I’m currently sitting in my room in complete silence as I write this letter. When I’m by myself listening to sounds of nature, I feel most at peace. These are the moments I need in order to appreciate life and the world that we sadly take advantage of. To be very honest, our planet is not in its best state. And to be really honest, if we as a society don’t

If we don't change the way we live, the world will soon face a greater threat than we can imagine.

Dear Future World,

As of 2018, the world is changing in a faster rate than it should be. The emission rate of CO2 has been at its highest and will continue to increase because of our careless act. Places like Greenland will be ice-free in the next couple of years. Soon (maybe in the next 10 years), there will be no ice left in this world. It is estimated that by 2050, more

I wish for you to know a world where you can live in a world where there is still good things and good people

Dear Willow,

I wish for you to know a world where you can live in a world where there is still good things and good people, just like your parents and our family. However, there are many problems in this world, just like lack of clean water and a climate that is unstable. Your mom was a sociology major and did non-profit in South Africa, where you were born, so she perfectly

I wish for a place where we can live, sustain life and have all the things we ever wanted to enjoy with loved ones. I hope God grants my wish!

To the people of the future,

I wish for many things in the future, but for a better world for people in the future. What I mean by this is that I want a world where we can preserve the earth we live in and not also have world crisises and catastrophes such as world war three and other natural disasters such as Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. The world has lots of crises such as

I know it may be hard to due to convenience, but little differences also make a huge impact. Remember that.

Dear family and myself, or whomever will read this who has impacted me life dearly,

The world is supposed to be a working progress, but not much progress is being made currently. Climate change is taking a huge toll on the planet and yet not everyone believes it. Temperatures have risen immensely within the last 5-10 years and yet some people are focusing on the last 25 years, saying that the temperatures have remained constant. They think that human activities are not the reason for

To the future generation of kids, speak up and protest again things that you find unfair and unjust.

Dear future children of all ages,

The modern day era I live in, 2018, is an amazing and scary time in terms of gun rights, social media privacy, and politics. In 2018, the same issues have been reoccurring, however, there's has been little reform or effective actions to reduce shootings while maintaining the 2nd amendment which is the right to bear arms. The main reason behind this is there are a lot of myths and yet no

Hopefully, we both have a healthy life in our future.

To my child,

Hi, 2050: In the year of 2050, I am 55 years old and my child would be building up their own family. My grandchild is so youth to talk with them the social issues and environment where we're living. And I appreciate my parents still in life. In 2050, the technology should be maturity and become developed, such as artificial intelligence and cloud data analysis would replace our most traditional human

Honestly, I am hope what I said is wrong and the importance of renewable energy has finally been acknowledged.

Dear future generation,

During my time, many people believed global climate change was something man made up. Those who had this mentality ignored the fact that humans are the biggest contributor to our changing world. See for yourself at the current time you're in and prove me wrong. Honestly, I am hope what I said is wrong and the importance of renewable energy has finally been acknowledged. If its not, then I told

I envision myself painting a picture perfect place for my kids and grand kids where global warming becomes a taboo subject and clean energy is engulfed into our society.

To The World,

The world we live in today is filled with beautiful and elegant nature that is being destroyed day to day from human factors. I envision myself painting a picture perfect place for my kids and grand kids where global warming becomes a taboo subject and clean energy is engulfed into our society. Many countries are suffering from the fate of global warming, especially countries who do the least amount of

To laugh at our efforts as they were on such a small scale, too small some would say to make a difference, and then smile when we think about the number families just like ours that did the same thing.

Happy 34th birthday my son.

Cyron, As I sit here and write this letter to you 33 years ago I never thought this day would come. The day that I have to explain what happened to our world. I write to you today in hopes that the world you are living in is in better shape than we are currently on track for leaving you. From my birth I have seen the world change in dramatic

I promise you (myself in the future haha) to keep the faith in my dreams.

To myself, my family, and all the world,

I don't know who will be there to read my letter first, maybe my family, maybe a person who doesn't know me. However, thank you, thank you because you're there to listen me in this moment to know how I see the future and how I think to change it. Also, you need to know that it's important to me, I don't know if I'm crazy but I want to

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 the dreamers of tomorrow,

Whenever I consider the future of our planet, I cannot imagine the hardships that your generation will bear. Each day, I see the consequences of our collective action affecting the natural rhythms of the world around me. The animals are confused, the people are confused and answers seem hard to come by. In all of this confusion, it will be easy to blame the adults around you. Your resentment is justified.

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.

Dear future self,

What does sustainability mean to You? To 21 year old self: sustainability is a broad term with seemingly infinite ways to classify it. To me sustainability is living a life with a conscious approach to what ramifications come with actions. As a species we have done a pitiful job of maintaining and managing our home. Upon taking this course I believed that I wasn't the problem but I like many are

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

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

Six years ago now I clambered along cliffs in the Pyrenees, along the craggy and outwardly inhospitable Spanish side of the range. Even in the heat of high summer, the mountains remained a retreat; snow shimmered on distant peaks while birds circled and wheeled above-- particular vultures that I’d come to see, restricted always to mountain ranges but now only present in any number here. The prior year I had been

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 Grandchildren and to future generations,

I am sitting here in my room of my apartment writing this letter to you in the year 2018 of March. A lot has been going on around myself and my peers in regards to the continuous change of attitudes, engagement and the overall change in lifestyle. Coming out of high school I chose to see the world in all of its tragedy and malevolence. These thoughts and attitudes festered
