Dear Humans of the Future,

I hope you’re doing ok. The way the world is heading right now might mean that in your time there may be several crisis afoot, from extreme weather patterns to depletions of drinking water. You may be living a very minimal waste life, or a very cramped one. This isn’t the future I wish to see for humanity, but it definitely seems that it is unfolding to look that way.

I’m writing this letter today to pledge my efforts towards a better tomorrow by committing to living more sustainably. I think with this comes the decision to opt for things that leave the least to little carbon footprint. This means riding my bike to work, rarely eating meat or animal products, conserving energy and water at home, planting vegetation in my home. I believe the best way to help you of the future though, is to support policy change that enacts regulations to make our world more green. This will involve not only more political involvement on my end, but also a will to spread the word and encourage others to do the same.

My hopes for the world of tomorrow are for a much broader movement for co-existence to be in place. I hope those in power have an empathy towards all walks of life and not just those in their backyard. I hope that the efforts I pledge to living and supporting a more sustainable lifestyle within our world will help humanity in the future. Lastly I hope you’re in a place better than where we are now.

Thank you,

 

Francisco Arreguin

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to recycle and compost.

 

To My Children,

Is the world really polluted?

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Future Earth,

I promise to promote the growth of clean energy, like solar… For the sake of my grandchildren.

 

Dear friend,

I will fight for this cause and I will never ever give up because we, the youngsters, are the hope.

 

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.
