Dear Future Generations,

Sorry we bunked the fun for all of you. Are there still tigers in your generation? Because tigers are insanely cool, and to see a tiger in person is breathtaking. It would be a tragedy if your only knowledge and understanding of these creatures was reduced to old videos and pictures on the Internet. Hopefully, your generation has become more mature about protecting the Earth than my generation. Maybe you guys have found a way to harness solar power for every aspect of life or some sort of renewable, clean energy source. But I’m sure the cost of innovation is nowhere near the cost of all the things that have been lost since then. Are there still lush forests and flowers? Have the bees gone extinct? I would most certainly hope not, because those small things helped define great moments in my time and I would be greatly saddened to learn that in the future, the planet has become desolate of most life. At the time I’m writing this message, things are looking pretty bleak: there’s an increase of all things bad, like floods, forest fires and carbon in the atmosphere and oceans. But the future is not set in stone, and the clichéd, overused aphorism “Those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it” applies more then ever for you. Learn from our mistakes: take action and stand up for preserving the world you live in. Do not succumb to the politics and the leaders that only care about themselves. Continue to strive for change and show grit in dealing with all of your struggles. Learn from our mistakes, and act in a way that will not have you writing a message to future generations as I am now.

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.
