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

To My Dear Children, Jackson Carlo and Stella Jane,

I am a better person because of you, and I want the world to be a better place for you.

 

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 Tomorrow,

I promise to become more educated on the global issues that face populations I can’t see

 

Salutations to whoever may be reading this,

I promise to do my part. I promise to be the change I want to see in the world, and I hope that you, reader, will do the same.

 

Rachel and Noelle,

I hope in a small way this helps your world.

 

Dear Lucy,

The clock ticks, time passes, and the earth and all of its inhabitants move closer to dangerous boundaries we can dimly discern but cannot see clearly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.

 

Dear Future,

“I knew you would want to know how the future turned out. You got so anxious about climate change as we grew older.  By coming back, I thought I could help you with that.”

 

Dear Tomorrow,

My climate action is to educate youth to create solutions for energy efficiency and conservation opportunities.

 

Dear Nafia,

I also hope that your previous prayers have been answered. The way you wanted to create green jobs for your fellow city dwellers have been fulfilled already.

 

Dear my future family,

I will promise to help climate change as much as I can.
