Dear people of the future who read this,

Hello. I’m just a regular girl from the Netherlands who wants to make the world a better place for my children and grandchildren and their children, etc. I want world peace and a safe planet for everyone. I hope that when this letter will be read in the future a lot has changed in a good way. That all kids can go to school and no one has to live in fear. Also, that we don’t have to worry about climate change.

So dear people in the future. I hope that this goal will be achieved or at least almost.

greeting Esmée Widdershoven, 14 year (in 2016)  (the Netherlands, Limburg, Echt/Susteren)

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear future niece or nephew,

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

 

Dear Amara and Uma,
