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 child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

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 all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Dear Future Self,

I am scared of the things happening right now with our planet.

 

To my Kids,

I wish you all the best and always make sure that you can be proud of yourself and don’t need status-symbols for feeling nice.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

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 my Beloved Future Children,

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