To my children,

I hope you are doing well and that the future world is in a much better state than it is now. I am writing to you as a college student at the University of Vermont. I’m currently a freshman, and I’ve been here for just over a month now. UVM puts a great focus on climate issues and ensuring a brighter future for ourselves and our future generations. This is something I had not thought a lot about before coming here and now see is a much more significant issue than I previously thought. People need to make serious changes, and soon if we want to see progress in how the world is functioning. I hope for all of our sakes, and your future children, that by the time you are reading this, we have made some progress. I wish you the best of luck, and you see much success in your future.

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To my future children,

I am doing everything I can because I want the footprint that I leave behind to be my feet in the sand on a beach and not a carbon one.

Saiba que enquanto eu tiver vida, minha voz não calará para alertar o mal que estamos fazendo agora para as nossas gerações futuras…

 

Querido amanhã,

Em fim, espero que você receba essa mensagem, e entenda o quão pequenos nos somos e como é importante preservar o planeta terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise is to reduce electricity at home. I will turn off the TV and lights when I’m not in the room.

 

Dear Gabriel,

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” – The Lorax

 

Dear Gabriel,

Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.
