Dear Evie of 2050,

It’s 2019. Six months ago you and your mom visited my family for beach vacation and delicious artisan popsicles. It’s an interesting time to be alive — the world is in a perilous position because of global warming and the pressure is on each person to be part of changing how we live to preserve the future. I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world. (You and your mom are two of them.)

My promise to you (and myself) is to continue challenging myself, to be a model of how to live a climate friendly life, and to talk about climate change in everyday conversations. Right now I’m taking steps towards a zero waste lifestyle — trying to sew cloth sandwich bags, buying a hybrid car, and taking reusable bags with me when I shop. I’m also planting a garden (and learning from the plants that don’t make it). I hope to learn these things for myself and then be able to help others as they too change their lifestyles.

As you read this, many years have passed. I hope that the humans of the world have made a safe transition to a sustainable lifestyle and preserved the ecosystems with their amazing bugs and animals (and anoles) that are fascinating you today.

Love,
Andrea

Dear Gabriel,

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Oi Luc,

Estou esperando ansiosa sua chegada pra que a gente possa fazer muitas coisas boas juntos, uma delas, é cuidar bem do nosso planeta.

 

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear future loved ones,

As I sit here and write to you, I’d like to share with you something more horrifying than a few boos – our current home, Earth.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

Queridos filhos Heloísa e Henzo,

Tenho muito orgulho da minha função (agente de fiscalização ambiental do Acre) pois é através dela que posso dar um pouco do meu suor, para que no futuro ambos possam ter um lugar melhor para viver.
