Dear Fiona and Cora,

It’s your Uncle. We’ve dealt you a pretty bad hand in terms of the world you’re due to inherit. I’m sorry. It isn’t your fault. I want you both to grow up in a world that is sustainable, lush with biodiversity, and fully capable of fostering a life that both of you and every other child deserves. Me, your mom, and your dad enjoyed that, and I want that you for too. I want it for everyone in the world. In 2020 I’m going to start spending my free time with climate activist groups. I’m going to contact my elected officials on a regular basis. I’m going to vote people into office that take the climate crisis seriously and take actionable steps to counter it. I’m going to do everything I can for both of you, and every other child that deserves a future-and that, of course, is all of them.

Dear Tom and Leena,

I want you to only see the beauty in this world; there is so much of it and I will protect this beauty for as long as I am here on this Earth.

 

Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.

 

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

Dear Sander,

I pray that you are having a happy life and that you have contributed each year of your life into helping to make our planet healthy, cleaner, thriving and greener- a better place for all people and animals to live.

 

Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Queridas crianças do mundo inteiro,

Pedimos que vocês procurem fazer como nós e continuem essa luta de colaborar com nosso planeta: evitando o consumo exagerado, usando a tecnologia para o bem, plantando árvores, economizando água e poluindo menos.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

The transformation of human consciousness

 

I pledge to take the bus.
