Dear Future Self,

The planet is dying. I hope that my future self looks back on the past and feels that I’ve made a difference. Of course, there are simple things I could do, like compost and recycle, but it does not end there. It is important that throughout my life I spread the word, and educate myself on the environment and the effects of pollution. I want to make a contribution. Throughout my life, I will not use plastic straws, plastic bags in grocery stores or plastic water bottles, and I will encourage my peers to do the same. For me, surrounding myself with people that are like-minded in wanted to be apart of the process of saving the world, is important. It is crazy to think that my species might be the cause of the 7th mass extinction and I do not want to live in a world where I am adding to the cause of this. I hope that my future self looks back and can be proud of the progress I’ve made so that there can be a world where my grandchildren live.

More Messages to the Future

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

Dear Ezmae,

As I write this, I consider giving up as it sometimes seems that all is lost. But then I think of you.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

Espero de coração que, no futuro, você possa olhar para trás e se orgulhar muito dos pais que teve.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.

 

Dear Generations to Be,

If we could all slow down, look around and connect: with each other, the Earth, the sky, the plants and rocks and animals, then maybe we can all remember to treat everyone and everything with respect and live in love.

 

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go DEEP GREEN

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.
