To the Future Generations,

With the recent election of Trump and the immoral policy changes he intends to enact, I’m angry and ashamed to be represented by the current U.S. government. His complete denial of the existence of climate change and his lack of support for programs like the EPA has made me very stressed and discouraged about our country’s future environmental policies. In fact, this entire presidency has really negated my view of the future of this country. Currently, I am enrolled in an Intro to Sustainability class and have met so many young people like me who want to make a difference for the environment and help save the planet! It really has calmed my fears and pushed me to really do something to spread awareness about our climate issues. As of recent, I’ve been working with so many friends to start something wonderful to enact change and help spread sustainable practices to all people. That has given me hope. I know that the world is changing so rapidly in both the environment and societally, that sometimes it’s hard to keep up, but remember that change is slow and hard to enact.

I hope the world is still a beautiful place by the time you get to live in it, and I’m sorry if it is not because of our slow realization of ruin. I want you to know that people cared and are learning to change, and are desperately trying to preserve the earth. If something similar is happening in your time, fight for what you believe in and never stop. Always take a stand, like I said the world is moving so quickly that sometimes it’s hard to keep up, but slow down and make your mark. If you truly believe your cause is worth it, do it.  Take a stand, never back down.

Best,  2017

Dear James,

More importantly, what are we doing to better our planet and everyone who lives in it?

 

Hey Kiddos!

Dear Future Self,

Climate change didn’t happen overnight. It was little things that grew bigger and bigger and we ignored them even as we saw them becoming stronger than we ever thought. That’s the same way we must battle this at an individual level. Believe in the power of change from just one person, because no matter how it feels, we are never truly alone in this fight.

 

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 Future Humanity,

Save your environment if you can, if its even still there.
