Dear future me,

Dear myself, How are you? Do you have wet feet but miss the rain? Did you see some hurricanes? Do you miss your wintercoat? Did you make your trip to the NorthPole as planned when you were 20 years old? Maybe you’re already used to it …

If I want to read this message lying in my bed with my husband, close to each other because it’s cold and raining, I need to take action now. The message needs to be transmitted as well, which you did, I’m sure!  But now, I, and others, need to take action. My future husband is, I hope, doing the same. I hope he wants a green garden as well, rainy nights but dry feet.

Everything is a question mark…. we can’t predict everything but we can do everything to prevent the worst of happening.

Xxx,

Your 20 years old self,

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.
