Dear Future Grandchild,
We can learn a lot about how to treat others from stories that have been passed from generation to generation.
I promise to put in a rain catcher tank.
I promise to drive less and walk more.
I promise to never use a plastic straw.
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.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.
Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.
I’ll buy only food that I plan to eat before it spoils.
I will encourage composting at work.
Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.
To my precious children
I want clean air, clean energy and muddy feet for you. I want this for all children.
