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 grandkids,

I believe this fusion of ecology and economy backed by the digital technology is our great achievement.

 

To my daughter and son,

Surrounded by scientists who shared my fears and visions, I often had a hard time to accept that outside our small community climate change received marginal attention.

 

Dear Daughter,

Tonight at bedtime, you asked, seemingly out of nowhere, “why are the glaciers disappearing?”

 

Jeremy M,

My promise is to work to protest carbon emissions.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

Dear World,

I vow that I will try to make a difference every day, so that you may enjoy the world as I have.

 

Dear Future Explorers,

I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?

Dear Kids of the Future,

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.

 

Dear future me,

I am 19 years old, and I am angry.

 

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.
