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 future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.

 

Dear Bella,

I promise that I shall continue to do all that is within my capabilities to leave you a world where there is fairness and justice.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

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

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

I pledge to stop using plastic bags.

 

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.

 

To My Fellow Two-Spirits,

Thank you — Thank you — without you, I would not hear butterflies singing, without you, I would not understand black bear humor, or the creativity of jays planning their breakfast, without you, I would not feel flora whispers of long-lived wisdom on the back of my neck while sitting in Padmasana.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.
