Dear Future self,

By the year 2050 you’ll be about 50 years old. I hope that the world has very different mindset about the environment than it does right now. In class, it seems like 2040 is one of the dates that comes up over and over again as a necessary turning point for our future. If everything went accordingly, I hope you can still go to Nantucket in the summer and see the family house. It’s not threatened by the rising ocean levels yet but some people are saying the entire island could be gone in the next hundred years. I hope that you took action to reduce your own emissions and to advocate for environmental policy. I’ve gotten very good at learning about and talking about the environment but I know I can get better at actually helping it. I hope single-use plastic is a distant memory and that Loyola finally got a dishwasher. Most of all, I hope that you still have hope for the world moving forward. Helping the environment won’t stop with one generation–it needs to be a continuous effort that we improve every day.

More Messages to the Future

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

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 Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Pour ma famille,

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.

 

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

Dear Indigenous Persons with Disabilities,

 

Dear Future Generations,

I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.

 

Dear Tara,

I am sitting in a classroom thinking about you. Which is rare for me. I hope that our family has taken some initiative to do something about changing society instead of building robots and large houses.

 

Dear Future,

We need to work to save our beautiful home.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to educate myself and others about how we can protect and nourish our 1 PLANET

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.
