Dear AIESECers,

Hey AIESEC!???!!! I imagine by now this organisation is sensationally huge all over the world and incredible source of creating new leaders who are value-driven and who cares about our planet enough to ACT upon it even after leaving AIESEC!

Right now, I really aware of my footprint and what our and the previous generation were doing to endanger our home, planet Earth.. I can not even believe that so far I wasn’t even paying any attention not even talking about to take actions, right?

I am committed to change my eating habits and my buying behaviors… I am already doing it in 2 months so at the moment very optimistic.. And planning to do more: change my main mean of transportation to a bike, to settle down in a less environment polluting country like Togo, or Benin, or anywhere basically around West Africa and leave the so called Western Civilization where they make me became a human who is so extremely distant from nature. Also planning to take more actions around the awareness of climate change and have a social business on this topic!

My main barrier holding me back is fear about it will cost more: energy, money or time.. to change it is never easy, but it is not impossible!

I have no choice to do an other way.. If I don’t do who will do? I can be inspiration to others around me, so let us start somewhere.. that place should be inside you! That is all! Make a decision!

AIESEC was continuously pushing me to understand my role as a leader: it starts with setting examples! I cannot want to do the same things and expect a different result… I want to make and I will make this world better for my children!

In the next 5 years or even 3 I am going to open my social business in West Africa dealing with social issues and climate change! I have already started to save up money to make this happen, and also build my network around here!

I could not be more happy that I live in a generation of this modern age where there are so many opportunities to make our lives better and now as I awaken I know there our many more opportunities to not just be selfish but to make the world a better place! I care about SDGs, AIESEC recently start to align on SDGs too.. I will keep continue to collaborate with AIESEC as an entrepreneur for ever!

Keep the right values and fight every day more to leave no or minimized footprints on earth! It is possible to live in peace with all others: animals, religions, people and mother nature!

All my love,
Kriszti

More Messages to the Future

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!

 

To my precious grandchildren, Emma, Maya, Maddie and Will,

With love and a great hope for the future, a future that will be healthy and sustainable for you, my precious grandchildren.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

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.

 

Dear me,

Remember how passionate you felt at 20, I hope you keep that passion in you and are still working on climate 30 years from now.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.
