To the future generation,

I want you to know that climate change is and will always pose a threat to us humans. Currently there are many people who back the claims that our planets temperature keeps rising and the earths systems — its ability to replenish and store the necessary nutrients needed for us to survive — are by our own doing threatened. Our oceans for one, have become polluted with so much waste, which as our populations increase will only continue to accumulate. I amongst many have decided to focus my life career-path in helping the cause, with environmental issues at the heart of it and you the future in the mind. My promise to you is that you will get to enjoy what natural beauty is currently here, that you won’t have to worry about going to bed hungry, that we including our Earth will all be treated equal and that the world will be in a much happier state.

As you’ve grown older, I’ve become increasingly aware that protecting you means more than ensuring your short-term safety. It also means ensuring that you’ll have a safe planet to live on.

 

Dear Me,

Today, I promise to keep my spaces clean and my environment cleaner.

 

Dear Sadie,

You are young and have a rich future ahead of you. I am retired and aiming for a high quality of cultural life and comfort with whatever time remains to me.

To my fellow adventurers,

Don’t stop looking for adventures.

 

Queridos nietas/nietos,

Creo que debo hacer más. Por ello, he decidido escribir esta breve carta para empezar un proceso en el que vaya escribiendo más cartas, conforme vaya teniendo más claridad de mis posibles contribuciones.

 

To my great-great grandchildren,

I don’t know your name
or even if you’re alive,
but I’m doing all I can
to make sure you survive.

I’m your great- great grandmother
who lived a century ago
in a world far different
from the one you must know.
