To My Children,

Dear Future Children,

I am 15 years old now and writing you this letter after my sister, your Aunt, sent me a link. I am writing this to you, just as a nice memory of what life used to look like. We live in a time of terrorism but also innovation now, and I hope for you that you don’t have to live your childhood in the fear of a bomb in the metro etc. I hope for you that you grow up in a world that knows peace and collaboration. I will do everything in my power to do that for you.

Since the Industrial Revolution we have been thinking of expansion and always wanting to make this bigger – the bigger the better. I wish for you that you know better, sometimes smaller is smarter. Efficiency is key!

Its the year 2030/2050 and I am either 30 or 50…haha… so damn old!

Anyway all I want you to know is that I wish the world for you and not only do I wish it, but I will work hard for it. I want you to know that I will try my best to raise you into the best human beings that you can possibly be. My goal as a parent is not to make the perfect child, my goal is to make a child who feels perfectly happy in their own skin. I want to raise you as educated,international, conscious people, who knows I might be raising the leaders of tomorrow (no pressure).

That’s it from me,

love,

Leoni

Cool, now that your jetpack is put away in your garage where you keep your flying car; how did the aliens save us from our own destruction? Did they have this hyper advance vacuum that just sucks all the greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere?

 

Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Awareness is key. Learning about this issue can seem like a small effort compared to other actions, but it’s the most important.

 

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

 

Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.

While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

 

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.
