While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving.

To my future Niece,

I am writing to you today. February 27th, 2017, with much hope in my heart. I am sure the world is very different in 2050, but there are certain aspects of the current world that I am going to put my life work towards preserving, so that you and your children may enjoy it.

Your mother and I grew up adoring nature, playing and biking and hiking. It was where our imaginations were free and where we found the purest joy in life. However, where I stand today, there are many things threatening the little bit of true wilderness we have left. Climate change, currently, is just beginning to show its teeth. Biodiversity loss is at an all time high, rising sea levels are washing away island villages. It is February, yet last week I was sitting outside in shorts, enjoying 70 degree weather. The course our world is on today is frightening, and if we do not change soon, I cannot imagine what our planet will be like when you read this letter.

However, there is hope. Amazing discoveries and solutions are created every day. More and more, I see younger generations, such as mine, coming together to fix what our ancestors began. I know that this trend will continue, and I can’t wait to see the amazing ideas that come from people like you. While I will work my hardest to create any positive change I can, you must continue this quest. You cannot give up hope, and you must always remember that the beauty on this Earth is worth saving. I look forward to the time I will spend with you our in nature, and hope that someday, together, we will witness humanity as a whole learn to respect and look after the earth, just as you and I do.

Lovingly.

Dear Future Self,

It was 2020, the year I realized that life is fragile—not just mine, but the entire planet—through immense consumption, pollution, greediness, ignorance, false bliss. This wasn’t the way I wanted to live my life, so I promise to actively make the change.

To my children – Chase, Maya and Harlan

I hope that we manage to change the system really soon, while there is still time. So that you are not left with the mess, and trying to fix something that you didn’t cause. I hope we figured out a way to be kind, and caring for others who will suffer more than us. A way to let go of the greed and look at ways we can help others rather than take from them.

 

I love you Earth.

 

Dear Gabriel,

A message from co-founder Jill Kubit:
Writing letters to our kids about climate change is hard. It should be.
