Dear tomorrow,

The world as we know it today is not what I expected it to be 15 years ago. As a young optimistic child growing up, by the year 2020 I had high hopes and expectations of the world being more advanced as far as environment health and technology. Although technology has advanced and continues to, I do not see the progress I was hoping for in regards to the environment. In fact, it seems as if things have gotten worse. Pollution is still horrible, water has become a scarce resource in certain areas, and climate change is rapidly progressing for the worse. Today I am writing this letter to let you know the status of our environment. I hope this letter reaches you safely with a better environment. I hope there aren’t as many natural disasters occurring like they are here. I hope by now the world realizes the importance of prioritizing the Earth. With that note, I’ll leave you off with a few expectations of mine that will hopefully be true by the year 2050. For starters, I expect for my summers to be summers and my winters to be winters, not the other way around. Recently, the weather in California has been unpredictable. I hope that it can return to how it once was and how I remember it to be. Now, although I am a huge car fanatic, I wouldn’t mind being able to afford a Tesla seeing as they are full-electric vehicles. In fact, I am expecting a lot more affordable Tesla models to come out by the year 2050 as well or potentially more car manufacturers producing full-electric vehicles. Finally, my last expectation is that solar power energy is much more affordable, for obvious reasons. Ultimately, I hope that the world is better off environmentally by 2050. I hope that my expectations can finally turn into reality for once.

Love you always,
R.Y

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.
