More Messages to the Future
I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see
My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).
Aos meus sobrinhos queridos, Ana Laura, Luis Carlos e Helloísa,
Talvez eu não esteja viva para ver alguma mudança, mas espero que vocês vejam e tenham um mundo melhor em 2050. Plantei um ipê rosa e outro amarelo, que eles estejam florindo até 2050.
I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.
To my beloved granddaughters, Margaret and Caroline,
Growing up in Germany, I often wondered what my parents had done to oppose the Nazi regime in the 1930’s that led to WWII. I was so disappointed when I found out how passive they had been. For me, this was formative.
I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.
You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.
Greetings 2050 earthling,
Starting in 2015 I committed my life to sustainability.
I promise to use my reusable water bottle more often
I promise to stop eating beef.
I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.
