Dear Campers,

It’s been years since I worked at camp but my memories there are still so clear. I recently saw that camp has announced this summer as their last due to the unlivable conditions they face. I felt so heartbroken because this is what my generation and my parents generation have left you with. I once was a lifeguard at swim dock. That’s right, you could actually swim in the lake. I remember how cold the water was, when it splashed up against the dock, when the waves came over my kayak. Now the lake has been contaminated by years of run off from huge companies and contains so much trash that all plant and animal species have died.  The docks have been boarded off, leaving you to imagine what it used to be like. Along with the lake, we also spent time at the outdoor pool, but as you know, it’s become so hot outside that the water reaches an almost boiling temperature in just a few hours. And the sports fields! The green, lush so well kept sports fields where we would sleep during overnights and play game after game of capture the flag. Well, that land was used to build an indoor center due to the intolerable heat. It might be hard for you to imagine a camping experience that was almost entirely in the outdoors, but this was the camp that I grew up with. I hope that in the future, your generation works harder and more efficiently than mine did to improve the world for future campers.

Good luck,

CRS

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Querido amanhã,

Eu quero esse mundo melhor para você, onde o povo tem voz, seja lá quem você seja, eu vou fazer se tudo para proporcionar um mundo melhor para você.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

Dear Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

Greetings 2050 earthling,

Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.
