To my beautiful boy,

Today is world oceans day. I will never forget the first time I felt you flutter in my tummy was when I landed in Sydney off a flight from Amsterdam and took you swimming in the ocean. We lived in Bondi and while you grew, we took walks together along the Bondi to Bronte coastal track. I would talk to you as we smelt the saltwater together. You made me excited about the future. I worked at Taronga Zoo helping the team build an Institute of Science and Learning for future generations. Your papa visited from Amsterdam and we travelled to Tasmania and swam lots in the ocean. You love swimming in the ocean. I missed my Greenpeace family, who are also your family – Warriors of the Rainbow. They are strong like you.

Already at 3 years old you point out plastic in the canal, you want to make a difference and I know you will. We have no other choice. The clock is ticking. The Arctic is melting, cities are growing, nature is receding, wildlife is suffering, our oceans are choking. But people are mobilising. And from little things, big things will grow.

I hope the world will change and you will be part of the solution – renewable energy, flourishing forests, plastic free seas, simple living – bikes, films, art, fun.

I promise not to eat animals, to fight for a fair and green future for everyone. To build diverse and daring communities of good folk making the world and better place. And, most of all, I promise to love you forever.

The clock is ticking. The Arctic is melting, cities are growing, nature is receding, wildlife is suffering, our oceans are choking. But people are mobilising. And from little things, big things will grow.

More Messages to the Future

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to contact my local officials on passing measures against climate change

 

To my Dad,

I hope on this Father’s Day, my 24th birthday, and the rest of days, we remember that the most basic part of life is living happy with the ones we love. Acting every day against climate change will allow us to keep that simple piece of humanity.

 

To the future generations,

I hope that you all can enjoy the Smokey Mountains in your lifetime too and that they look how they did back in 2017 when I saw them.

 

To my unborn children, hey it’s mummy Cris here!

I am witnessing climate change in a way that I do not like, and I do not know how can I stop it.

 

Tratar de assuntos climáticos com responsabilidade no Brasil

Que se multipliquem estes novos heróis da Terra!

 

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 Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dear Annalyse and Greyson,

See people can say they care about climate change, but caring is not action.

 

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

 

Dear ACS, LG, CM, MCD, AH, MS, AS, GL, and ERD,

I commit to demanding that politicians that want my vote, my time, my substantial help and expertise are people who seek to address climate change seriously and talk about it boldly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will take short showers, eat less meat, and buy local more often.
