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

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Be the person who shows up. Be the person who continues to advocate for change because change is possible – it is possible in the most partisan of politics.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a water bottle.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

 

Dear Annie and Eric,

I hope that this life of good things is not just yours to enjoy, but that you also have decided to fight for others to have this life, too.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

To my Beloved Future Children,

Be fearless – do not be afraid to talk to each other and do not be afraid to fail.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will do my part to help ensure that there is an Earth left when we are done borrowing it.
