More Messages to the Future
Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.
dear future children,
As I write this, our world is slowly giving way to climate change.
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:
I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.
I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.
To my wide-eyed warrioresses,
Since my two daughters emerged into this world, all of my tomorrows have become more dear.
Isabelle minha querida neta!
Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.
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?
I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.
I promise to encourage myself and others to recycle more.
As causas das mudanças no clima são tão profundas e envolvem tanta gente e tantos lugares.
Dear Future Sami Lee,
Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.
