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.

Dear tomorrow,

In a chaotic year full of twists and turns, the Earth has been neglected and left to face the harm of climate change alone. As global temperatures rise, we continue to fall. But to think, “If only all of this could simply go away…” isn’t so much of a crazy idea. It may not be simple, but it’s definitely possible if we were all to be involved.

It starts with little things, like becoming aware of the problem. Climate change and global warming has cost many animals their lives and without help, it’ll cost us our lives as well. Natural disasters have become more extreme, icebergs have been melting at alarming rates, disastrous wildfires have destroyed communities. If we all simply spoke up about this topic and spread awareness to friends, family, local governments and more, things would start to change. This in turn could lead to even bigger projects for the world’s betterment: more usage of renewable energy instead of fossil fuels, more usage of electric/hybrid cars, and so on. The world is capable of so much change if we all just pitched in.

In a chaotic year full of twists and turns, we deemed the future to be our savior. We always wake up day by day in hopes of seeing a world taking more initiative– a world of change. I hope you’re doing your part as I am mine in making this happen.

Treat the Earth with kindness.

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Dear Rowan and Anaka,

If we could talk, I would not be able to bear your gaze as you ask: How could you, the people in a position to change the course of climate change, fail to act?

 

To My Future Children,

I hope by 2050, our society has taken initiative to be producing energy solely through renewable sources.

 

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.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

dear future people (:

I am writing this message to you guys. When I look outside my window today, I see a beautiful world that others and myself call “home sweet home.” The trees glimmering in warm sunlight, the air stirring a cool breeze, and the water flowing down rivers are parts of our home Mother Earth.

 

Dear sons,

I’ve been so busy since 2012 working towards getting a price on carbon.
