People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done.

To My Children and My Future Grandchildren,

There is nothing that anyone can do to stop change. Change will happen. It is up to us to try to ensure that change happens for the better and not worse. We’ve made a lot of progress over the last 200 years in making the world a better place for most people but, while doing so, we have also done significant harm to our planet. People are an amazing race and, if we have the will, I believe we have the ingenuity and resources to fix the harm we’ve done. I want you all to live in a world at least as beautiful and bountiful and full of love as the one that I’ve been able to live in. So I promise you that I will do what little I can do to help us achieve that. I will make certain changes in the personal life (e.g., I will eat less meat, I will buy energy from companies supporting wind and solar energy). I will talk about climate change. I will reject people who are unwilling to make sacrifices today to help make your world a better place. I will vote and I will vote for people who care about our planet. I think of you always and I have hope.

Love, Trevor

Dear Rowan & Tristan,

I promise to do everything I can as a daughter to our great Mother Earth to protect her wildlife and trees.

 

Dear residents of Bedminster, Bristol UK,

We hope we did enough

 

Dear Grandchildren,

I hope we can pass on a better place to live so that my grandchildren and their future children can enjoy the beauty of nature that our wonderful God has given us.

 

To my sons,

I’m voting with climate change as a top priority. I’ve tried to teach you boys that we need to clean up after ourselves and take care of the earth. I promise to continue doing these actions and more, for your sake.

 

Dear Child,

Hope we get to have that snowball fight I always dreamed we’d have.

 

Son,

Make the most of every day because remember yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift.

 

Dear future child,

We’re presenting at conferences, writing articles, and organizing events with the goal of mobilizing our profession to act on climate, and to help them understand that it will deeply impact our mission to preserve history for future generations.

 

Dear Abigail and Olivia,

What stories will you tell them about our generation? Will we be heroes or villains?

 

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.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Hello spawn,

I am small now littles and I may be small forever but in my small ways I will fight for you.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!
