To my future grandchildren,

I just want to start off by saying this: I’m so sorry.

It’s 2019 now and we’re trying our best to right the wrongs of our grandparent’s generation. As of November 25th, greenhouse gas emissions are at it’s highest. The Amazon rainforest is on fire. Venice, Italy is underwater. Koalas are almost extinct. By the time you read this, there will be even more consequences than what we could have predicted.

Please know there are people out here right now championing your future. I’m going to fight for your future. I can only hope you do the same for your grandchildren.

Remember your values. Remember to be kind. Even if there’s nothing else on this planet, kindness will see itself through.

Querida Emanoely,

Gostaria que você se lembrasse das lições simples que mamãe e papai te ensinou, como cuidar das plantas e dos espaços coletivos.

 

To My Future Nephews,

I want you to see those corn fields in the north, the beautiful beaches down in Florida, and the stars in the woods at night.

 

Dear future me,

If we don’t stop cutting down trees for agriculture and to build houses then the future generations will not think about trees when they hear the word Earth.

 

Dear old dude Mårten,

I know that the 2019 version of me (today that is) wished and hoped for that I did all within my power to turn the world around without loosing sight on the beauty of being alive.

 

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 Llewyn, beloved grandson …

I can only say that I devoted myself to doing as much as I could to make it better, to provide for a just transition, and to fight those forces that continued to exploit the Eaarth with extractive methods, methods that always also included oppressing some people–because those doing the oppression believed that they were better and deserved more.

 

To My Daughter and Future Grandchildren,

There are so many more things that we can do together to help our Earth from the damage that has been done, and I am so excited to teach you.

 

Dear Donatella,

We ran through the woods laughing, crying, and living.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to go DEEP GREEN

 

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 Future Generations,

I promise to make as many changes to my life as possible to make yours as great as mine.

 

Dear Evie of 2050,

I can feel the change happening — many people are working to transform the world.
