Dear citizen of 2050,

In this year (2050), technology would have reduced physical human efforts a 10,000-fold as compared to 2016.

I would see:

  • more social and economic equity across nations; more food to eat;
  • five times as much water from thrice as many forests and urban greenery;
  • twice as much wildlife;
  • little or no domestic or other waste in public; stiff penalties for industrial and business waste in public;
  • fewer cars and other private vehicles; buses, trains and other public transport available 24 x 7, at affordable prices;
  • no malaria, polio, tuberculosis, and diabetes; affordable health treatment costs;
  • faster public justice and legal systems.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

Dear future me,

I am 19 years old, and I am angry.

 

Dear Lucie,

Lucie, I love you more than you could ever know and I hope that my promises help contribute to a better world for you and inspire you to take action as well as you grow into the amazing adult I know you will be.

 

To the People in my Future Life,

Anytime I’m at the crossroads of life, I pray that I, or anyone else in the same position, will keep you in mind, and try to shape a world that’s the best possible for you.

 

dear me in 2030,

I am smelling burning plastic!

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

Dear Society,

If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to shop at more farmer’s markets.
