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

Dear Tomorrow,

And, if this summer has taught me anything, I am content (because I have to be) living in this limbo, this seemingly endless waiting for the opportunity to change, when really the opportunity exists within our very selves all along.

 

Dear Chay and Kate,

Don’t ever let anyone tell you your actions don’t matter. Every single thing you do matters. You matter.

I will keep the air clean so everyone can see the sunset.

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

 

dear tomorrow,

I hope that the state of the environment becomes a part of everyday discourse.
