To my grandchildren,

Climate change has been a big issue on Earth my entire life. It is year 2020 at the moment and I am 24 years of age and the issue of climate change has been occurring long before I was born as you might know. And due to the amount of inactivity our current government is doing, things will most likely be worse by the time you read this message. With the US no longer following the Paris Climate Agreement and our government being run by oil loving climate change deniers, the prosperity of our once healthy planet is beginning to look like merely a dream.

While the proper insight has been done to determine the possible actions that humans can do to save our planet from global warming, it is another debate entirely if humans will follow through with our discoveries. In California, the transition to electric cars is slowing happening, more and more households are using solar energy, wind turbines are slowly appearing, and meat alternatives such as vegan products are becoming more mainstream which gives signs of hope. But ultimately mitigation is the name of the game during these trying times. And with the increase of wildfires and our ever looming drought that California must deal with, I pledge on taking a bold stand on climate action for the betterment of our great planet Earth and for a better and healthy future for my future kids and grandchildren!

Fe,

As one push of a button can set a spinner in motion, so too can the actions of one in creating a world that allows you to thrive, to giggle, to love.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

No plastic straws, no water bottles, shop local, no meat.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

It wasn’t about Him, it was about Us. And this isn’t about Me, it’s about You. And it won’t be about You, it will be about Them.

 

Querida Emanoely,

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

 

Dear A and C,

You are growing up in a time of immense change. In the last two years alone, we’ve learned so much about big and important issues including climate change and the systemic racism that runs through our institutions.

 

Dear tomorrow,

If there’s one thing young people have learned while quarantining, it’s that Gen Z holds so much power and is capable of a lot more than we think. We’ve created a community that has united us all and started to bring about change for the good of our futures. Now, with the help of Gen Z (and of course, people of all ages), we have the power to save our home, the Earth.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to use a reusable water bottle.

 

Dear future generations,

Past generations took all the trees, polluted all the water, fished all the fish, and hunted all the animals so that there’s almost nothing nice left.

 

Dear Tanuj,

The time has come to question ourselves as citizens about our own actions and the legacy we are leaving behind.

 

To My Future Children,

Most importantly, I hope you live in a world where science is taken seriously and fact is clearly distinguished from fiction.

 

My future husband,

I want us to read this in future time and remember all the senses and views we witnessed.

 

Dear Future Afnan,

You should make a time machine and come back to past and solve all the problems.
