Dear Future Generations,

It breaks my heart to even feel the need to have to write this.
I am a 25 year old girl living in London, turning 26 in 2 days!
I have been interested in climate change since i left school but recently i have grown more and more interested.

I am scared and saddened that in around 50 years from now the arctic will have practically melted. I love the snow, i love polar bears, i love the arctic weather i love visiting places like finland, yllas and Norway every winter. These places are the most magical on earth and to think one day they will be just an ordinary country breaks my heart. I want generations after generations to be able to visit these incredible places to experience the northern lights, snowboard and ice fish. If global warming continues as it is right now whilst I’m writing this then i fear all the beautiful things on earth will be lost forever.

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

To my child,

For the pale blue dot we live on, a precious beauty, I try to help.

 

To our future generations,

I want you to know that some of us do care and we are working towards a better future for you.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

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.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear future me,

My hopes have always been to live in a brighter and better generation, where women are respected around the world, human rights are respected and last but not least where animals and mother nature is cared for by us individuals.

 

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 Ellis,

So, dear heart, I am doing everything I can as the situation worsens.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.
