I tried to teach you of the importance of being satisfied with what you had within your hands.

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)

I want to tell you a story. Yes, another one.

Mankind has always been able to deal with the greatest challenges it’s faced and this will not be the exception. My message to you is: find that passion and give it your all. ‘Till your legs give out.

 

Dear Kids,

My mistake was thinking I needed to give you more to be a good Mom. Recently your aunt asked me what my favorite toy was growing up. I gulped, I didn’t have one- it was the outdoors, sliding down a ravine of leaves with my Dad, skiing and camping. Today is October 12th, 2021 and I am still going to be giving you a lot, it’s going to look a little different – love, experiences, education and a healthy planet.

 

To the wonder,

Dear tomorrow, thank you for letting me ride the wave of wonder that reaches toward you for all generations of all species to come.

 

Dear Kids of the Future,

My wish for all of you is that the people of the present wake up and are able to change their habits.

 

Oh My Lovely Faizan,

I love you my son. You are waking up now. Hopefully tomorrow, more of us will, too.

 

I won’t leave my lights on.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

To future Geof,

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.
