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.

My dear Honeys,

I think every parent believes that their child’s future is worth protecting – because I know the power of this force in me and what I am willing to do.

 

Dear Future Self,

I hope you got your dream job of using your business degree to reduce co2 emissions and promote sustainable energy.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

 

Dear grand nieces and nephews,

I wish you this security knowing we changed because we love you.

 

Dear Future Grandchildren,

I hope I can look you in the eye and tell you I honestly did everything I could to protect our planet.

 

For those who come after us,

This is for the countless children I already see suffering the impact of climate change around the world, and the generations to follow.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

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.

 

Al mio piccolo, grandissimo bambino,

Hai compiuto da poco 1 anno e giusto ieri hanno annunciato la scoperta di 7 pianeti che potrebbero racchiudere in essi la possibilità di sviluppare, o aver già sviluppato, vita a livello organico.
