Dear Future Generations,

In 2019, I am scared for the future. I am afraid that my generation and the generations before me are continuing to ruin the environment to the point of no return. However, I still have hope. And I hope that you look at the world in 2050 and breathe in clean air, experience playing in the snow, and know that polar bears and other animals are not extinct. I hope that my generation and the past generation were able to fix our issues and that the world is in better condition. I hope that you are reading in your history textbooks about how everyone got together despite their differences and cleaned up their polluting habits.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

 

To my future children,

It’s not enough to just recycle. I will sign petitions and call my local representatives. I will also engage in conversations about climate change – even with people with whom I don’t see eye-to-eye.

 

Dear People Of The Future,

It’s scary, this is the stuff you see in movies about the end of the world.

 

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go to the farmer’s market more

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

To my children,

I hope that the fervor that is building continues to build and spread and that the world has made progress to minimize the effects of our past actions.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will get my roommates to be more environmentally friendly.
