Dear old dude Mårten,

I hope that you are well and feel loved by and hope towards the future of those nearest to your heart and mind. I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive. I hope you still have the courage to do so and feel empowered by others coming together to solve the climate crisis and that it hasn’t developed into a climate emergency but instead that the world, for most parts, has been steered into calmer waters.

I wish that I, by then will feel at ease, fulfilled and content and that I still feel empowered and powerful to continue that journey in the second half of the 21st century.

Salve! /Mårten

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will teach my children about a greener earth.

 

Querida Futuro Yo,

Quiero que puedas decirme que lo hemos logrado, y que el mundo hoy es un poquito mejor porque nosotras pusimos de nuestra parte.

 

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

 

To My Future Child(ren),

The fact that you are reading this means that you would know the answer to a question that has kept me up at night more often than I would like to admit: Did I make you proud?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Don’t use plastic straws!

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to use a refillable bottle, bring my own resusable spoon/form wherever I go, use clean personal care products (without chemicals).

 

Dear X—, Dear A—,

As with our struggles to eliminate police brutality, as with hate crimes, so it is with climate change – there are actually a lot of people out there who care.

 

To what we’ve overcome.

The first step would be in overcoming ourselves. Because whether we end up fading into obscurity, or thriving in prosperity, we will overcome ourselves.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to switch from “light” to “deep” green.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.
