Help Writing Your Message

Think of a person important in your life – your child, a friend, a family member or your future self. Imagine it is 2050 and they receive a message from you written today. Your message shares your thoughts about climate change and your promise to take action to ensure they have a safe and healthy world.

Get inspired!

Write that message today. We will share your message now and preserve your message for the future.

Not sure where to start?

We have designed the questions below to help you start the writing process. We encourage all kinds of messages, so don’t worry if you go “off topic” for any particular question.

If you need more ideas, check out recommended climate actions on our inspiration page or read featured letters on our home page.

Please upload a photo to include with your message if you would like to be considered to be a featured message on our site.

Thank you so much for contributing a message to DearTomorrow.org. We hope that your message will improve public awareness and increase individual motivation to act on climate change.
