No heredamos la tierra de nuestros ancestros, la tomamos prestada de nuestras hijos. Cuidemosla!
More Messages to the Future
To my Dad,
I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
To our future generations,
I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.
I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.
My darling girls,
I can be brave enough to wake up.
To my precious children,
As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.
I promise to stop eating beef.
Dear Nova and Remi,
I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.
Dear Emilia and Tommy,
We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.
To my future children,
I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.
I promise to ride more and drive less.
I promise to go to the farmer’s market more
I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.
