To my grandchildren,

Hi!

First of all I apologize for my bad English, I hope my message will be clear.

I’m Italian, I’m 23 years old and my name is Giulia. I’m studying to become an energy engineer because I’m very sensitive about topics like the protection of the environment, renewable sources and so on. I always try to behave in an ethical way because I want to do my part for the protection of our planet.

Unfortunately, I see a lot of people around me that don’t understand that climate change is real and is already a big problem for the world and don’t care about the future. But how could they live happily seeing that our planet will not be the same for future generations? How could we live happily seeing that we are destroying other living beings? How could we be so selfish? I’m really worried about this situation. In particular I’m worried about what the president of the USA, Donald Trump, is doing (maybe it is better to say NOT doing) to protect our planet and to respect the COP21.

I hope I will read this letter again in a few years and say that all my fears are disappeared and that we succeeded in saving our planet. I hope my children and my grandchildren will live in a better world, with better politicians, better rules, less corruption, less attachment to money and more attention to nature, food and other people. With this letter I renew my promise to act in an ethic and moral way and to try to help other people to understand this problem.

More Messages to the Future

 

I promise to stop eating junk food.

 

Dear Kai and Leah,

I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.

 

Dear fellow human,

May my tomorrow include more attention to these details so that you know that I do care.

 

Dear future Child or Grandchild,

Climate is undeniably changing but it is not top priority.

 

I promise to plant trees and to turn off the lights.

 

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will bring permaculture designs to my community.

 

Dear Elliot and Alana,

But being truthful, I know we are not yet on the path that will lead to the change that is needed; but it is visible.

 

Dear Madeline, Ava, and Harper,

What I wish most for you girls is that the care you have shown each other would extend to the big wide world around you.

 

To my dear children in the year 2050,

I don’t wish to go backwards, but I do wish we would slow down and design our brave new world with more care.

 

Future Message to Earth,

Hope there will be no more droughts,
And no more pollution with which we fought,
Regarding every human should be taught,
Ensuring that we uniformly follow these thoughts.

 

Dear Future Generations,

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