More Messages to the Future
Dear Future Self,
More than getting through a global pandemic that has already taken hundreds of thousands of lives around the world, our true feat is even larger: to secure our long-term health and the health of the ecosystems upon which we depend for life. To do that, we have to cut our emissions in half in the next ten years, and continue to reduce it beyond that. And to succeed in that, we need to fundamentally shift the way we do EVERYTHING.
Dear Nieces, Nephews, & Future Children…
If there is any advice I could give you, it is to believe that although you are one single person in this world, you still have the ability to make a difference in this world.
I promise to pick up trash at every beach I visit 🙂 and to bike for local errands.
Dear Tomorrow-My letter to the future 2030
I am most sorry we could not work through our differences, and see through the greed, get organized, and do more so that you could have a better life in your 2030 future.
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
I promise I will do everything I can to help fight against climate change.
So today, my strong and spunky girl, I promise you this: I will stay vigilant and flexible. I will spread the word.
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.
I will become the change I wish to see in the world.
I promise to go to the farmer’s market more
That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.
Dear my future child,
I promise you, I am going to do everything I can to save this planet for you. I won’t let you down, I swear.
