Dear future generations,

Right now, I am feeling scared for the future of the earth, but hopeful for the direction we are going in. Young people are making a lot of noise and politicians are now listening. They are scared of the power we have to make the changes that are necessary.

I continue to ride my bike to class, I have been vegetarian for a year and a half and have severely cut down dairy consumption, and mostly shop at consignment or thrift stores. Reusing is key!

If you keep loving and spreading peace, the world is full of endless possibilities and opportunities.

Best wishes to everyone everywhere, and rock on!

Love, Rebecca

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

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 Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear Matthew, Sam, and Sophie,

There is a promise in the Bible: ‘I shall restore the years that the locusts have eaten’ and that points to a promise of complete healing and restoration. But until that comes I intend to do my best to ‘save the planet’ in whatever way I can, and I encourage you to do the same.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…

If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

For my children,

If we haven’t done enough and the world you’re living on is apocalyptic or if you’re living on another planet then I’m deeply sorry and just know that I believe in you and I know that you are both strong and smart enough to handle anything.

 

Dear Future Generations,
