Dear future generations,

I hope you’ve had the chance to know how beautiful and clever the Earth can be. In 2018 we’re seeing how human development has warped its natural processes and I hope that in your time real change has already begun to stop this. Climate change and pollution is a result of our selfish expansion on the planet but my hope for the future is that growth and prosperity in your mind will no longer rely on inequality and destruction; that the idea of growth and progress to you means increased health, happiness, and sense of community.

Whether or not others have started to enact change I hope that you all will commit yourselves to learning and improving the world, environmentally and socially. I believe that real change is only possible when many perspectives are expressed and integrated into a collective effort or will of all people working unselfishly for the betterment of all, so don’t be afraid to say what you think!

Today, I promise to do my part to protect what we have now by re-using and up-cycling products like clothing, supporting local sustainable farms, and limiting my pollution in order to preserve it for you to know and improve.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear love,

The world is facing some serious crises right now as Viral pandemic and war situation between Ukraine and Russia.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

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.

 

To My Future Self,

This lead me to my final project, which focused on reforming the education system to incorporate sustainability classes into the current curriculum.

 

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Dear Finley,

I wonder if in 2050 we will be looking at a future where fear from the changes at hand has caused people to hate rather than love and provide hope. Perhaps in that world we will we no longer comprehend the biblical texts in a meaningful way. Will climate change be the end of the epoch of God?

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.
