Dear Grandchildren,

Hopefully by the time you read this letter our world is a much better place. Hopefully you are able to grow up in a green world that has been improved over and over by the generations before you. You will have halted the negative effects of climate change and reversed the effects that you can. Hopefully by this time politicians will be working together to invest in the most importance resource there is, the planet. There will be nobody who does not believe in climate change. Hopefully the infrastructure in our cities will have become green and sustainable. Hopefully transportation has been transformed with fuels that do not deplete the ozone layer and add chemicals to our air. Hopefully products will be packaged with recyclable materials and will produce much less waste. Hopefully the world has made advancement on the sustainable development goals, and come up with a set of new ones. Hopefully agriculture and food are spread to all corners of the world and the production of sustainable green energy is at an all time high. But if none of this has happened, hopefully you will continue the battle that those before you have fought so hard to win.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to turn old shirts into produce bags.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

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.

 

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.

 

Olá minha querida filha Julia,

Muita Coragem e força para você enfrentar todos os desafios que virão, pois são com eles que crescemos.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.
