Dear Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I saw the movie Before the Flood; I work in Sustainability so I know the situation was bad. But.. it’s more than bad, it’s terrible. If we do not act immediately, we’ll leave you a destroyed world. That’s why I do not want to wait anymore. It’s not enough to be a vegetarian, to use solar energy and be a farmer in a biological csa. So I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week. Meat is a big CO2 supplier and eating meat benefits animal cruelty. I hope I can do something in this way to create a better world for you and your beloved.

xxx Yolande

Dear Tomorrow,

The road I learned to ride my bike on, the field where I kicked my first soccer ball, and the park I ate my first ice cream cone at, could all be gone.

 

Vitória,

Antes de realizar qualquer ação pense no meio ambiente para que suas atitudes sejam pautadas na sustentabilidade. Assim o seu pensar e agir localmente poderão resvalar na escala global.

 

To my brother’s children,

We wondered about how we might be able to eliminate plastics from our day to day routines, and recycled literally everything. We were amazing, you should have seen us. Now and again though, we wondered if these were the right questions.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Earth,

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Filhota,

Espero de verdade saber contribuir para legá-la inteira para você, e que todos saibamos fazer isso em conjunto também.

 

To my darling ones,

And it’s not that I don’t care. I care deeply. For you three, and the families I hope you will have one day; for the many beautiful places I have had the privilege to know, places which take my breath away, that fill my heart with a bursting joy and connectedness to something so much greater than I, places I know may be quite different when you are my age

 

Dear Seamus and Tuva,

So it’s 2050. If the good people are winning the greater struggle, fossil fuels are a shamefully long chapter of the past, and there has been a full scale awakening to the need for only renewable, clean energy.

 

Dear Me of Tomorrow,

I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
