to future generations,

The world is going to change. This change may be for the better or it may be for the worse, but the world will change. With increasing global temperatures, continued CO2 Production, and the constant loss of biodiversity, it can be easy to believe that there is nothing we can do to save the earth. The direction the earth seems to be going can be especially scary when those before me created a mess and left the aftermath to my generation. We will not let the same happen to you.

A drive for positive change is already underway. Globally there is a push for renewable energy, stricter laws on resource use, and more regulations on carbon production. My generation may not be able to solve all of the problems we are faced with, but we will try to take steps in the right direction.

I will do my part to make sure that our change leaves the earth in a better place for you. I will do so by being conscious of my actions, both big and small. On a small scale I will work to reduce the waste I produce, to pay attention to where my food comes from, and to limit the amount of electricity and water I use. I will also continue to fight for change on a corporate level and to teach others about the positive changes we can make. The world is going to change, and I will make sure this change will be for the better.

Dear AC,

I think a lot about where the right place to live is.

I promise to ride a bike and take a smart train.

 

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.

 

To my children,

If there is one thing that I taught you it is to be honest in your decisions as they pertain to yourselves and the earth in which you live.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I am so sorry we didn’t realize this predicament sooner.

 

Hi buddy,

I can now see that the solutions are there, that a transition of the magnitude that is needed, is possible.

 

Dear Grown up Alton and Dot,

The most important thing in my life is you, which means that as your mom – I am doing my very best to make sure that when you read this letter, Earth is a cleaner and safer place for you and your children.

 

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.

 

Dear Hailey and Lily,

We know about this. If we don’t fix this for you, it’s our fault.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Eleanor,

It seems silly to saddle yourself with guilt for something that hasn’t happened yet. I don’t want to do that. As of today, I don’t really feel guilty. I guess I just want to make sure I keep doing more, so that when you read this, and ask what I’ve done since then, I can still feel good about my efforts.
