Dear my future child,

You must be aware that the world has something called climate change. Climate Change-“A change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.” Although you might not know what that means, all you need to know right now is that it is bad. I will make sure to do my best to prevent it to provide a healthy future for you. I will invest in energy-efficient appliances, reduce water waste in our household, buy better light bulbs, pick up trash, power our home with renewable energy, buy less meat and eat all I buy, drive an efficient vehicle, and anything else that I learn in the future that will help I will do for you. To give you the same opportunities I had in my childhood. To give you the same safety and health. So you can learn and tell the same to your child.

Love, Serena

Dear Amara and Uma,

Maybe you heard about bats? Bats, the carriers of this disease that spread among us like wild fire. I love bats. When I was your age today, sitting in the evening on the back terrace of your grandparent’s home in Ibiza, hundreds of bats would play, dance and sing among the trees.

 

Dear Finn and Cy,

I think a lot about what you might be like when you grow up and about what kind of world you will live in.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

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 Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.

 

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.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

We loved hiking, camping, biking, swimming and playing as kids together.

 

Dear future love,

A culture of consumption is the reason that my world faces such an ecological crisis, it is both necessary and proper to address the fundamental mindsets that have created such a destructive culture.
