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.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will encourage composting at work.

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

Dear Future Self,

More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate promise: community awareness of the climate crisis.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will encourage everyone to adopt a plant-based diet. Good for our health, the animals and the planet.

 

Dear Ryan,

I hope that you start doing things that will help the world.

 

Dear Gabriel,

One day ten or twenty years from now, when you look back from the future, you will be able to clearly see the entire path.

 

Dear Ellie,

My heart is an ocean of love for all the children facing a life of climate catastrophe.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Hey Kiddos!

My hope for you is that all our legislative efforts and care for the environment makes a difference so that we can wipe asthma out of our family.

 

My darlings, Juno & Vaeda,

You ask insightful questions, and together we learn about the mysterious world we inhabit.
