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.

Dear Future Generations,

Dear Future Generations,

 

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 Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Kids,

I know it’s long past time to wake up. You deserve a future in which drought, famine, and war are not all your children ever know; the choices my generation makes now will determine your future.
