To All Who May Be Reading,

I have always been inspired by people who are naturally good in this world- doing their part in fighting for what they believe in and for our planet. They band together to pockets of positivity and build networks of authenticity, compassion and good in the world. I hope that if you’re reading you are aware that our world is ever changing, and it will be a constant effort. I hope you do your part not because you “have to or else..” but because you intrinsically care about the preservation of the wild and it’s interface with our inevitably growing infrastructure. I hope that you and I are a part of the future solution and we inspire others to understand conservation, preservation and rehabilitation of the world around us. The road ahead will always be long but together we can make it one step at a time.

More Messages to the Future

 

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.

 

Querida Tainah,

Quero que você beba água pura, coma alimentos sem agrotóxicos e que sua casinha branca com varanda, seja voltada para o leste, onde o sol vai nascer.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will only use renewable energy.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

Isabelle minha querida neta!

Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

I pledge to take the bus.

 

Dear My Future Child,

I want to sculpt a world for you where you can play outside without gas masks, an ocean to swim in without toxins, and a thick lively forest for you to wander.

 

Dear Maya, Emilio and Daniel,

We thought that the world was an endless supply of whatever we wanted… I know it sounds hard to believe, but that is the way it was.

 

Dear Future Cassie,

I promise to be successful and help save the environment.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Future Generations,

I am sorry that you won’t be able to see some other animals such as polar bears, dolphins and whales.
