Dear future children,

I want to believe that by the time you are reading this letter our society has made a significant progress in transitioning towards sustainability. In 2016, one of the primary problems we were dealing with across the planet is climate change. Our luxurious life style and infinite pursuit of power and money increased global waste production, greenhouse gas emissions, and resources depletion. Scientific evidence suggested that we were gradually reaching the planetary boundaries that would cause irreversible consequences unless people become more invested in making a change.

I have faith that you, as the future generation, will be able to stop this deterioration and make the right decisions to implement a practical frame work focused not only on reducing carbon emission and waste production but also on being more creative and effective.

Adapting a sustainable life style is one of the ways you can attack the climate change problem. Making small changes in your life will have a valuable environmental impact and will encourage your surroundings to be more proactive.

From my personal experience, I can tell you that changing daily habits isn’t as uncomfortable as it may seem and can actually turn out for the better. You shouldn’t be afraid of getting out of this comfort zone adopted by our society and always try to push your limits and be the best version of yourselves.

I trust you and know you have the power to make your life more meaningful and satisfied by giving back to the environment and be more involved in the processes and changes happening on this planet.

All my love,
Roni

More Messages to the Future

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

I pledge to use less plastic!

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

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.

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit, use metal straws, take quick showers.

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
