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.

Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,

We hope we did enough

 

To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,

Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII.  I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We want to let others know about how to fight climate crisis.

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

Dear Maddie,

Please know that I have tried very hard to be one of those people, to even make the smallest of changes in order to improve the world for you and your future.

 

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?
