Dear Michael,

In 2050, I will be 49 years old and you will be 40 years old. Just in my 20 year lifetime so far, I have already seen so many changes due to the climate crisis. Ice caps are melting, animals and plants are going extinct, there is trash everywhere, and the air is so polluted in some places that it is worse than smoking a cigarette.

I know that I contribute to some of these issues by driving my car, using too much water, not recycling/reusing as much as I should, etc. I have always wanted to be a good role model for you, and yet I am continuing to make bad decisions for the environment.

My goal for 2050 is that I will be environmentally conscious, and that I will live my life so that I can be a good role model for you. With how the world is right now, I am scared for you to grow up, I am scared for what your future will look like especially when I am not here anymore. I pledge to do everything I can to improve the environment so that you can be excited for the future, and not scared.

More Messages to the Future


Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.


To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.


Dear child,

The journey of humanity does not take us to Mars like the world now likes to believe. It takes us home to our true self where there is no separate self. Where we are all one. You know all this. Look after yourself my child, look after your brother, your friends, your children, all the animals and the whole planet. Love them like there is no tomorrow.


Dear Future Ryan,

I promise to be a knight in the campaign of truth seeking.


Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.


Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.


Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.


Dear humankind of today and tomorrow,

I do wish to contribute as much as I can, maybe even start a ripple effect, where other people will start taking action too and inspire other people too.


Dear Luna,

I will never give up on you, on humanity, on the future.


To my Maria and her children,

I have to tell you something: it is so hard to keep our life “green” for now, but we still keep trying.


To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?
