Caro futuro,

è una sera come tante altre e mi ritrovo qui a pensare come sarai.

Ora ho “solo” 18 anni, ma effettivamente mi sono resa conto che il mondo così non può andare avanti, grazie alla scuola che frequento sto imparando tante cose sull’ambiente che mi circonda e spero di proseguire i miei studi in questo campo.. chissà magari avrò la “fortuna” di assistere e partecipare ad un cambiamento più pulito del mondo.

Mi sentirei un’ipocrita a dire che faccio molto, ma nel mio piccolo ci provo, a differenza di molti ragazzi della mia età.

Non lo so cosa aspettarmi da te, cerco sempre di non crearmi aspettative, godiamoci il momento e facciamo quello che possiamo e se sarà qualcosa di bello, la meraviglia può solo che aumentare.

Oltre ai problemi climatici, decisamente gravi (pensa che questo è l’inverno più secco da non so quanti anni), tutte queste guerre mi preoccupano davvero molto, per non parlare delle discriminazioni.

Spero tanto di ritrovarti “più pulito e pacifico”.

piccoli pensieri di una diciottenne vicentina,

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

Hey kiddo,

I’ll be here to tell you all the ways I have fought for the health of our home, and fought to protect all of the wide, open spaces for you to run in. When you’re old enough, we can fight together.

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

 

Dear friends,

Rather than exploit it, destroy it, poison it, why don’t we just enhance the beauty of it, guard it, and love it?

 

Dear Victoria, sugar pie honey bunch, chiquita loquita,

How can I look at your bright eyes and light dance and tell you we are facing a war?

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Alba:

There is still a lot of beauty and I will do what I can to keep it from slipping away.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

I promise to take shorter showers.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.

 

Dear Malasher and Alex,

My goal was to help you grow into better citizens of our planet; to help you care about our natural world and to make everyday choices that reflect concern for our beautiful earth and our own health as well as encourage you to work together to make changes in our community.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.
