Dear friend,

Hi!! My name is Ana and I’m a 16 years old girl from Portugal.

In my country people still don’t realize the huge impact of climate change, which makes this fight a little bit harder. However, we are a country with people that don’t give up. I’ve been trying to explain to my friends and classmates about the importance of this subject, but they think it is a problem for adults. They are wrong. By the time that you are reading this, I’m going to be 30 or 50 years old and I will be an adult. Until then, I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope. We are the future. I actually want to graduate in environmental sciences and technologies so I can be an ecologist. But now the only thing I can do is to try to explain to people about our impact on the world and the causes of it. Unfortunately, I cannot be a volunteer because I am not 18 years old yet, so I’m learning everything I can about this issue in order to stay informed and to know how to take action. In my school I am the eco-delegate of my class. They even gave me this nickname “GreenAggressive” because I’m always talking about this issue and because sometimes I get really upset and disappointed with people that make fun of this situation. I hope that by the time you are reading this letter, this problem is resolved or almost resolved. If it isn’t, please don’t lose hope and never give up!

Remember: “words and ideas can change the world”! You have a voice so use it, make yourself heard and start the change! I believe in you.

Lots of love,
Ana, a girl with ideas from 2017
Porto, Portugal

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Dear my future child,

I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.

 

Querido amanhã,

Sempre é bom ajudar a natureza.

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.
