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

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

dear future children,

As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Para minha querida filha, Vitória,

Consegue compreender que estamos aqui de passagem e que temos por obrigação apenas tomar emprestado, evitado excessos e principalmente agradecer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise when I start my baking franchise, I will reduce pollution made by it as much as physically possible.
