To my future children,

I grew up in Manhattan. The great concrete jungle. I cannot imagine living anywhere else. I know there are issues with emissions and cars, but there are also public bike systems, bike lanes, walking and numerous amounts of public transit that I would like to think helps keep our emission levels down. I wish there were more cities like New York, and I hope you get to visit all of them some day. I have travelled a decent amount, and I hope traveling and learning about other cultures and food and languages is still something that can be done.

Cari nipoti,

Siamo nel 2017 e vi assicuro che sto facendo tutto il possibile per rendere questo pianeta un posto migliore.

 

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

 

dear tomorrow,

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

 

Dearest Gray,

When I asked you why the purple Violet called to you, you told me it was “magic”. I hope that you can still find the magic of life. I hope, despite everything, it is still in abundance.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I will aim to lower my carbon footprint!

 

Dear Future,

I will use less plastic.

 

Isabelle minha querida neta!

Nossa vida só tem qualidade se tem natureza ao nosso redor.

 

Dear Rosie,

But when you are reading this years from now, by the light of a solar powered lamp, know that your dad, mom and millions of others who burned brightly with love for our kids did what we could, when we knew the stakes.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?

 

Dear Tomorrow,

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

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to try to set up crowd funding for grants to people with realistic proposals to fight climate change.

 

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.
