To my friends’ children,

We can farm food now!
Leads to population growth.
Still manageable

Industrialize!
The message that kicks it off
Still under control

Revolutionize!
The great Acceleration
Anthropocene starts

Rising CO2
Extinction of great species
At the threshold now

Scarcity and death?
Or great collaboration?
We have the power

Power to stand up
We must exercise this right
To save our children

Trees regrow their leaves
Flowers come back at springtime
Bears leave their darkness

Humans must survive
We must listen to Nature
Save our true teachers

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Darlings,

I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to change the culture of my school.

 

Olá Pessoal,

Com essas ideias simples e força de vontade, podemos tornar um mundo, um lugar melhor para se viver, com menos mortes, menos lixo, transforma-lo em um mundo diferente.

 

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 Future Family,

As I’m sitting here trying to think of the best words to say to you all, I am thinking of one major thing: that I can only hope that you all get to experience the incredible beauty created by our planet.

 

Dear Tomorrow

Colin

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will convince my family to switch their gas appliances to electric.

 

Dear Emilia and Tommy,

We, in our time, still have the chance to change course. We have the knowledge and emergent means, even the profitable technologies, to do so.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I feel optimistic for you, tomorrow. I can feel a shift happening already.

 

Dear Beloved Children,

As time progresses, there is hope that value will be placed on all living organisms, including humans, plants, and animals. Life will move at a slower pace, and being on your own time and moving at your individual pace will be the typical way of life. I consider this way of life good living, and I hope that future generations will live on this earth as it was once intended to live in peace and harmony.

 

Dear Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

My darling girls,

I can be brave enough to wake up.
