Dear future me,

If you’re reading this, the year is 2050 and you’re 52 years old. By then, I would hope that the world survived a pandemic, a natural disaster, and reduced burning fossil fuels.

I would expect that many people have died from all the crazy things that are happening in the world right now. I would hope that the economy has recovered from the financial burden that the world is going through with the pandemic. I would hope that there would be a treatment or cure for COVID-19 so we can all go back to doing daily activities. I would also hope that our government has realized how damaging the effects of climate change has on our environment and has taken the steps needed to protect our lives and the wellbeing of our planet. But I would hope that by this stage, the most important part is that I am still alive and healthy while pursuing the things I love to do with the people I love by my side.

All the best,
Past me

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I’ll replace our lights with LED lights.

 

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 child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.

 

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

For a child I am yet to know,

We are fighting for a shared cause, inspired by our strong and unwavering dedication to preserve the beauty and wonder of our natural world for our children, our grandchildren and their children, and for countless generations to come.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

I am 19 years old, and I am angry.
