To my future children,

I am now 16 years old. I am a vegetarian, part of the AK ‘Wir helfen’ and try hard to improve my own lifestyle and so take part, even if its only a small part, in improving and rescuing the world. Our world, your world. The home of so many wonderful fantastic and fascinating creatures and plants. I really do believe that we can save our planet, together. We just need to wake up. I hope that you will get the chance to feel snow, to go skiing, to jump in a lake, to dive and see the world of fishes under the water, to feel the different seasons and to enjoy life.

It will all fade away… if we don’t start acting like we have to.

Love you.

More Messages to the Future

 

Dear Gabriel,

When the worst consequences of climate change still feel far away today, or the barriers to acting on climate change seem steep today, I do not think about today. I think about you, and your world when you are my age.

 

Dear Tomorrow

I will become the change I wish to see in the world.

 

Dear Future Sami Lee,

Everyone currently in life laughs and yells save the bees. We were a bee this year for Halloween and Lucy even came up with a great slogan “get with it honey”.

 

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 promise is to stop using electricity too much.

 

Dear Ari and Levi,

Luckily, we have figured out ways to build things without making the air dirty, and we are trying very hard to get more people to switch over to this new way as fast as we can.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to only use metal straws and reusable cups.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to never use a plastic straw.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to sign up for 100% renewable energy.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to live a car-free lifestyle.

 

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.
