Dear future self,

I am writing this to keep myself accountable and push myself towards taking action towards a sustainable future. I hope children of the future can still appreciate the wonders that nature and all its beings have to offer, appreciate the beauty in the world around us.

Dear Future Me,

I decided that encouraging myself to act positively wasn’t enough; I needed to encourage others. I needed to help more people recognize the beauty of our world and the reasons we need to cherish it.

I want your life to not be filled with the stressors climate change infringes upon you. I love you so much and our earth so much.

Dear World,

Today is only beautiful because I made a commitment to myself and to the world that I’d fight relentlessly for the future.

Dear next generation,

Please don’t wait to see the adverse effects instead adopt that river, stream, lake or ocean to make the world a better place.

To my future child,

This crisis is a turning point. If not for the world, then at least for me. I will when this isolation is over stand up – afraid, nervous, uncomfortable – and speak up for real. Stop acting, stop posing. I will join others in their fight. I will organize. I will crave justice.

Dear Tomorrow,

I hope pollution levels have gone down and that the climate is stable.

To my grandkids (of however many degrees),

Even though I probably won’t be alive to see the earth become inhabitable, I still feel a sense of existential dread for you all, especially if you’ve reached the age where you can have your own children and their fate depends on humanity’s survival.

Dear future generations,

It’s never too late to make a difference. Our actions have very real consequences. We can educate ourselves, learn from our mistakes, and take action. We can hold companies like big oil and big plastic accountable for their negative impacts on the environment. We can educate ourselves and others about what causes climate change and what actions we as individuals can take to lower our carbon footprints.

Dear Future Self,

I’m sure I’ll have also seen the climate crisis worsen and lived through a number of increasing problems stemming from it. This is where I worry. How bad will it be by then? Will where I live now be habitable? Will my loved ones and I have enough food and water? Will society work together to solve any of this? …Will there even be a society left? There are too many questions and they are too terrifying to ponder for long.

Dear Jeremy,

We had a lot in common obviously, and our concern for the planet we live on was one of the many things we bonded over.

Dear Amelia,

My commitment to you is that I will teach you how to grow your own food, so you will not be hungry. I will help you learn how to make things with your hands. I will show you how to invest in your community, so that when things are hard the community will catch you.

Dear Future Tate Cook,

We need air, we need food, and we need life. We deserve every one of those, and we take it away from ourselves.

Dear future generations,

Thinking about all of the things I have learned this year about the future, I have been worrying about not getting to live out my full life.

To my future child,

i hope that me and my generation did and are doing enough to stop global warming.

Dear My Future Children,

Right now climate change is a pretty scary thought. By the year 2050 there is supposed to be a global food shortage, I hope this is not the case. I think its crucial for my generation to do something about climate change before it becomes a real issue.

Dear Myself,

I hope that it would be a healthier Earth, and knowing the habits and things we all do, I don’t expect everyone to completely change their life. Maybe they could just get better, though.

Dear future self,

I hope that the future is less selfish and more empathetic. I hope that the well-being of the individual is valued as much as the collective good. I hope that the Earth heals itself and that people heal relationships.

Dear future self,

Covid 19 is a big pandemic and it’s shut down a lot of places. And we have to wear a mask everywhere we go but that shouldn’t stop us from reducing climate change.

Dear future self,

My thoughts on climate change are that as the population grows in our planet farmers are forced to produce more food which then means using faster ways to grow including using pesticides, antibiotics, and artificial fertilizer.

Dear Future Me (myself & my children),

We live in a capitalist society where it is very hard to prioritize Mother Nature & our well being…its difficult to serve our communities while taking care of ourselves & it should not be this way.

by Angelica Gonzalez

Dear Future Child,

I don’t want you to feel anxiety over the future or despair at the overwhelming loss of beauty we are witnessing. I don’t want you to choose between participating freely in society and your values. I don’t want you to be plagued with constant guilt and despair that your actions never can align with your beliefs. You should never feel the deep sorrow that no matter how much you do it will never be enough.

by Naomi Albert

Dear Tomorrow,

They say one man can change the world, but what can an army do? There are many others fighting for the same things as I — reducing the impacts of climate change, equal opportunity and equity for all, economic and political justice — just to name a few. We really are in this together. And together, we’re fighting for a better tomorrow.

by Claire Leone

Dear Amber,

It will be a long journey, and hard, but that shouldn’t stop anyone even you! So I hope you’ve had the chance to do and fight for whatever you are passionate about. I got you, I’ll get you there and I hope I did. We got this!
