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.

More Messages to the Future

 

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 Students,

I imagine at this point we have dropped our addiction to coal, gas, and oil and that our environment has made a turn for the better with the solar, wind, and other unimagined (at this point) alternative energy choices are in place.

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

Dear Future Today,

Here in California we’re starting to recognize our climate changing the natural world around us.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

 

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.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

To my dearest Gabriel,

What gives me hope is what is yet to come, what you will experience in your lifetime.

 

Dear Tara,

Each of us only has so much power and the problem is HUGE, but I worked at this every day.

 

Dear Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.
