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.

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.

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 Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dear future family and friends,

This is our house.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

I pledge to use less plastic!

 

Dear Me of 2050,

I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

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

 

To My Grandchildren,

It’s my hope that the following will be helpful as you navigate your futures.  These are the confessions of a climate activist:

 

Dear Tomorrow

I hope that environmental issues are a thing of the past.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

 

Dear Nephew,

I am going to start doing better to have a healthier planet for you to live on.
