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

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

Dear Evan,

What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.”  Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.

 

A love letter to my son

I hope this year is a real turning point and by the time you’re a teenager, your life is powered almost entirely by clean energy like solar and wind.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030

I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.

 

Filha,

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

To you, my dear!

In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.
