To my niece Ashleigh, nephews Ollie and Scott, and their children; the wider whanau

Dear Tomorrow, I often wish I could have done more. As a youngster I hoped fervently that our country would not go down the track of gross urbanisation with high rises & acres of motorways eating up our green land. One conscious positive action that I have consistantly practiced is my decision to remain carless. I see individual car ownership as part of the selfish, self centred  soci0-economic climate culture which has dominated our world thus far & the awful impact that domination has caused. Walking or catching the bus or train & cycling have been my conscious modes of transport. I have been very priviliged to see a national cycleway incentive initiated in Aotearoa (NZ). The “conscious eating & exercise & sobriety & let it begin with me” credo has helped me take responsibility for my own actions & also to begin to recognise how my individual actions impact our community as a whole. People matter most.

More Messages to the Future

 

We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”

If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.

 

Pick up your trash wherever you go!

 

To all the children of the future and those who love them,

While there is still breath in this body I will give of my soul and my time and energy to making the world a better place, for you, and all the beautiful living beings of this world.

 

Dear Future Kids Like Me,

What I hope for future kids like me is that they continue to ride the groundswell of climate change support all the way into action.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise composting in my house and getting an EV for my first car.

 

I promise to help people! Become more aware!

 

Meus filhos,

Devemos conservar nosso planeta. Mas, para se fazer isso, temos que fazer isso juntos. Todos os seres humanos devem estar voltados para cuidar bem do lar em que vivemos e do presente que Deus nos deu para viver: a Terra.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

Less meat, more on my feet!

 

My dearest children Ameilia and Alivia, 

I want you to hear the whispers of the seasons changing. The rustling of leaves as they gracefully cascade down from their limbs in the fall, birds singing in spring, and frogs that serenade the summer night.

 

Dear Nova and Remi,

I wish for you both that another kind of life has been discovered, one of peace, moderation and concern for all life.

 

Dear little one,

In the coming months, we plan to complete a full assessment of our environmental impact online. We hope to discover our biggest areas of resource consumption, learn what we can do better, and create an action plan to improve over the next year.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise I will do whatever I can to protect and preserve mother Earth for future generations.
