More Messages to the Future
I promise to change the culture of my school.
A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.
If we work together to spread the awareness of what is occurring today, we will be able to prevent it from continuing into the tomorrow.
Dear Peyton and Lucas,
I want you to continue to enjoy bright, beautiful, blue skies, gigantic shady trees, chirping birds, scampering squirrels, sparkling creeks and all that this amazing world has to offer!
I promise I will only use renewable energy.
I promise to plant 5 trees every year just to make sure I don’t leave a carbon footprint.
Dear Alanna and Valeria,
I promise you to keep trying, to keep educating, to keep pushing our elected officials to act and protect your health now and in the future.
What has most inspired me to act is wanting to be able to look you in the eye and say, “When I became aware of the existential threat of climate change, I did all I could.” Despite my pessimism, I act in the hope it can make a difference for future generations and all the precious life on our fragile planet.
Dear Me of 2050,
I promise that I will plant more trees in places where there are none.
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.
I believe i have truly played my part in raising awareness and practical solutions to climate change.
Dear Chay and Kate,
Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.
