Dear Grandchild,

Not too long until you’re born. I have been so worried about your future and our Earth. Recently though, I’ve met with communities who have hope and are working to reverse the threat of climate change.  They have inspired me. I now feel less overwhelmed and powerless, and I am determined to fight for our planet and your future. Grandma xxx

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear future child whatever your name is,

Climate change right now is really bad, I’m writing this during the COP26 conference in Glasgow (which is an hour away) and I’m listening to politicians talking about promises for the future. “If we fail, future generations will never forgive us.” -Boris Johnson

 

Dear Kiya,

Fighting for a system that rewards care for people and planet over profit.

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

Dear Students,

My act of love will be to use all the power I have, during the rest of my life, to stop climate change.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

We want to let others know about how to fight climate crisis.

 

Dear Children,

I wish I had a crystal ball and could peep into it to see you all happy and safe in a world that nourishes you and that is also nourished by you, a world where the resources it provides are as valued as the people in it and not frittered away by greed and power.

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Tripp,

I promise to do my part, supporting federal legislation to protect our earth while starting small with projects at home.
