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.

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

Dear Future Students, Citizens and Politicians,

I dream of a world where fires are not stripping the homes and lives of people, a world where droughts aren’t as catastrophic.

 

Dear grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

To my daughter and her children,

As a minister, I have preached that we are here to be of service to others and to be care takers of this wonderful planet that God has given us.

 

Dear Future Self,

Climate change didn’t happen overnight. It was little things that grew bigger and bigger and we ignored them even as we saw them becoming stronger than we ever thought. That’s the same way we must battle this at an individual level. Believe in the power of change from just one person, because no matter how it feels, we are never truly alone in this fight.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.
