Dear Helena,

I imagine that you should be fine in a world that you like to live in. At least, I hope so.

I have heard about climate change since primary school.  I always worry about climate change and want to do something about it. I am a person who loves the nature, animals and, above all, science. When people asked me when I was a child what I wanted to be when I grew up I always said: “I want to be a scientist, because I want to discover new things about this world.” Now in 2016, I am sixteen and I still want to be a scientist focusing on the environement. I am very worried about climate change because I know enough about this issue (I have seen a lot of documentaries and we have a lot of information at school) to have the notion that climate change has a lot of bad consequences for the human race. But I see this issue through a positive perspective and we have now technological development.  We can use this development to create systems and techniques to help us face the climate change and switch our energy sources.

I regularly use public transport. I rarely eat meat and in the future, I want my my job to help create systems, techniques or strategies to reverse this situation.

A barrier we face is that we don’t have time or disposition to think about how our daily decisions affect the environment.

I will do my best to do everything that I can to help, even to donate and take other actions that I can’t do now as a minor. In the next 5 years, I plan to recycle, and when I have a car, it will be electric.

I plan to have a career to help the planet earth get out of this situation. It won’t be easy because there is an economic emphasis of industry and technology over moral, ethical and spiritual issues. If we want people to care more about this situation and to take actions, we have to help humanity grow in a spiritual and moral way. Because, I believe that science and spirituality can coexist together; they need each other.

All my love,

Rita

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Meus filhos,

Espero que vcs tb encontrem ,de alguma forma,um caminho para colaborarem com Nossa Mãe Terra, bjs eternos.

 

My dear daughters,

I will use my voice to help bring awareness about climate change.

 

Annalu minha filha amada,

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

 

Dear Future

My hope is for all who live in your time to still know the joy of swimming in the ocean, walking through the woods, and hiking in the mountains.

 

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow and Dearest Lex, 

I do believe that the collective power of everyone’s best efforts can curb the worst effects of climate change, and provide you with a more stable and secure future.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ride more and drive less.

 

Dear Nuriel, Eliran, and Rotem,

Sometimes I think we will never make it, but I know we must keep trying.

 

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.
