Dear future generations,

When I try to imagine how the Earth looks like by the time you are reading this, only disasters, chaos and nature-less pictures come to my mind. As if now, we have experienced some consequences of climate change: environments have been deteriorated affecting the people that live on it. Regardless of these consequences, many people seem not to care or don’t see the evidence of climate change. On the other hand, there are some people trying to fight against this issue. When I come across these people they do amazing and huge changes but lamentably there are not many people like this yet. But don’t think that their change is in vain, because “in the open space of democracy every vote counts and every vote is counted”. This means that even if only a small change is made it is a huge step toward fighting against climate change. Based on this, I am hoping that the first lines of this letter made no sense to you and these people were able to make a change for the future which is now your present.

Sincerely,

Sandra
