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 Spike, Loulou and Yoshua,

I’m going to start a campaign to try to convince everybody in the Netherlands to not eat meat one day a week.

 

Minha pequena Nicole ainda não nos conhecemos, mas já te amo

Deixo para você o meu quintal onde o ar é perfumado pelas flores e árvores, a terra dá frutos e flores além de abrigar muitos bichinhos, a água é utilizada com consciência e o ser humano é respeitado e tratado como alguém que depende da natureza para VIVER.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My promise is to continue to dedicate my life, my business, and my future to creating cultures that embrace environmental action not only for our own good, but the good of the countless other species hurting from climate change.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

For my most dear and only daughter,

And I know life more fully because of you whom I live on through. 

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Dear girls,

I love you and I care deeply about your future.

 

My Dear Grandchildren,

In writing this letter to you, I am searching for ways to make my connection and commitment to you more present in my current experience

 

Dear Alyssa,

I pray that more and more fathers will realize that to love their children well, they have to love and respect the ecological systems around them too.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me. I do not want to see a world whose elders sacrifice your future for their short-term needs and personal gain. So it’s up to you and me to speak out.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I haven’t met you yet, but I already know you deserve a better tomorrow.
