In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

To you, my dear!

You want to know how I became an environmentalist? Well I’m still not, but I hope that one day when I finish my degree in Geosciences, I will have the great honor to be called one.

I forever dedicate my green-awareness to the great Clair Patterson.What he did for the humanity was simply heroic. That is how I decided to study geosciences, dreaming that one day I could find a way to make Earth a better place for you to live in. I hope that now that you are reading my letter, all my dreams have become reality. I don’t want to think about it in any other way.

Now, my dear, I’m just going to give one last piece of advice: Dream big. I’m at the crossroad in my life now that I’m writing this letter. I don’t know where the path I’ve chosen will lead me, but one thing is for sure: In 2050, I will still be fighting against climate change. I feel that it’s not only my duty, but rather my destiny.

The environment is important – take care of your actions to not destroy it starting from now.

 

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 Jamie and Jason,

My inspiration was the two of you. It started with thinking about the world you were inheriting and what your future was going to be like. But then you taught me how important it is to listen to you – to listen to young people.

 

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.

 

Pour ma famille,

Il faut trouver le 7ème sens et se battre pour des causes justes, comme l´amour et la liberté.

 

Dear Tomorrow,

I promise to ask five of my friends to plant trees.

 

Dear Potential Future Kiddo,

To think that my choices of sustainable commuting, eating a plant based diet, and working on our City’s zero waste program likely pale in comparison to the impact of not having a baby is nothing short of devastating.  Does it make me a bad environmentalist to honor my maternal instincts?
