Dear My Future Self,

I promise to put in my effort towards making my personal difference and also spreading the word about the importance of climate change. I am doing this for you because I want to see a better future. I hope you see a day where being sustainable is the new norm. If you have kids, I am doing this so they can grow up in a world where there isn’t fear of impending doom. I am doing this so you can enjoy your life to the fullest and be free of worry of when it could end. You want to be able to travel, be successful, and most of all, be happy. I will do everything I can to make a difference. It’s starting now and I hope you read this letter in 2050 and feel proud of the substantial changes that have been made in society.

To Annika, Anders, Stella, Eva, and Mickey,

In writing to you, I realize that I don’t want you to be hard on yourself if you choose to not make this your cause. But it is mine, so I hope that you hold me accountable to some of what I wrote here.

 

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.

 

To My Friends, Family and Future Grandchildren,

I realize my reflection of the past, current and future state of the environment paints a grim and pessimistic picture, but I feel optimistic in our ability to turn planet Earth’s fate around if we all work together and commit to making a change.

 

To the future,

Today, I will hope and envision the future I wish to achieve. Then tomorrow, I will have tough conversations, I will call my local representatives, I will continue to fight for this world.

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

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.

To my Children,

As you look through your window, I hope you will see a bright future. I hope you dream big, and that you have the courage, drive, and fortitude to do everything you can to achieve those dreams.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.

 

Dear Children and Grandchildren,

I see a world full of hope fueled by the desire for change.

 

Dear future me,

I’m doing this work because I see it as the best way to save and improve as many lives as possible. I’m doing it so you, 2050 Ryan, can look at yourself in the mirror. And so you can tell your kids and grandkids someday that you did everything you could.
