Dear next generation,

If you’re reading this, then my generation has ruined the earth, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t done a great deal to mess it up. Right now, we are in the middle of a global pandemic having to deal with all its consequences. But, something that we should also be dealing with is our environment because it’s pretty bad. Climate change has affected the earth as a whole: melting the ice-caps and heating up the atmosphere. With all the vehicles and machinery at work, our air quality is not the greatest. In general, my generation hasn’t been doing its job and protecting the planet that we call home. I hope that by the time you’re reading this, things have changed and people have started to protect the earth. Start recycling! Start using electric cars instead of gasoline-powered ones! To the government: START TAKING CLIMATE CHANGE SERIOUSLY! In the end, I hope that your generation has and will continue to treat our planet with the care and respect that it deserves because my generation didn’t do that. Fix our mistakes and make change!

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.

 

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 Devon and Chloe

I hope that my work helping to make your schools more sustainable will be something you carry on as you grow older.

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Dear Valentina & Luis,

You both know I have made it my mission to get people to understand more about the state of our planet‘s climate and what was at stake.
