Dear Yasmine,

Today is wonderful. Like yesterday and the day when you will read my letter. Because every day lived in bliss is a wonderful day. I tried to teach you that loving others is a bliss, helping others is a bliss, sharing with others is a bliss. Now it is time to pass what you learned to the others. Our climate suffered for years from our ignorance. We were, as human beings, so selfish that we overloaded our environment with plastics in the ocean, air pollution, soil pollution, etc. We drifted from following our ancestors’ clean pathway, worst than that, we transformed their green lands into landfills. We were not able to control our love of money. So we started constructing and constructing until we hid the sky with our iron structures. We applied technologies to destruct the human kind by increasing the number of cars on the road. We become very strong, looking for eternity, more clever but more consumers than ever. I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands and by  contributing to the restoration of simple life based on respecting our mother nature. I know that I will have time till 2050 to teach you more about our forests, oceans, air, about camping, smelling our soil, being sustainable and adore eating healthy food. I hope we will enjoy together all those moments.

You are my blood, you are my soul, I love you and I promise you that we will spend more time together camping so you will be more in touch with nature.

With love, your father (HY)

Dear Martje,

I promise to do my best and raise my voice to ensure a better future for you and our future kids!

 

The gift for next generation,

To save the big world, perhaps, we should change the mind from myself to my small family to my community.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

Dear Makena,

Sweetie, you deserve clean air, water and soil. You deserve to thrive in an environment that supports you.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

To the Future Generations,

I look at my baby niece today. The newest member of our family, just 3 days old. What will be left for her and her grandchildren?

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Our Shared Promise

I will act today so you may have a healthy earth to live on.

 

Querido amanhã,

Eu quero esse mundo melhor para você, onde o povo tem voz, seja lá quem você seja, eu vou fazer se tudo para proporcionar um mundo melhor para você.

 

Dear future generations,

My hope for you is that you can have equal experiences with nature that I was able to have with my dad.

 

Dear Daughter,

Even when contemplating huge global-historical issues — especially then — it’s important to stay grounded in the present time and place, the specific here and now, and the minute affairs of everyday interpersonal relations.
