Dear Future Generations,

At this point in time I look around at the constant neglect and carelessness from the country, community, and campus that I live in. Sometimes I feel so strongly about the necessity to combat climate change that I can feel my heart aching. It’s discouraging to see how many people do not know or do not care how their actions affect the world when it’s all I think about. It’s also discouraging feeling such a strong desire to do something but not knowing where to start or who to go to.

I know that I will become more and more involved for the rest of my life. But right now I pledge to continue trying to live a vegetarian lifestyle and eat as little meat and animal products as possible. I also will continue to try to sponsor a tree in someone’s name instead of buying people presents.

And hopefully by making these little steps I can look back when these letters are published and see the change that has been made. Hopefully by then we still have coral reefs, sharks, and the Amazon rain forest left. Hopefully by then environmental justice will be a part of every decision made at home and in the government.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

Dear Maret,

Right now I want to be hopeful. Right now I want to think that we took action to ensure this beautiful future for you.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

Dear Future Me: Only open after March 4th, 2050

I don’t regret my past ventures, nor do I believe I will regret my future ventures, but I’ve learned that I’ve needed to manifest these experiences into actions of sustainable development and conservation and protection of our environment.

dear future children,
