Loved One,

That we all have a role to play no matter how small, we all can make a difference.

Dear Alexandria,

I really hope the world doesn’t burn up by the time we have grandchildren.

by Alexandria Mayes

To my grandson,

I hope that I have left you with the education that will help you make good choices for you, your community and as a citizen of Earth.

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?

Dear someone in the future,

The most important thing remains to contribute to it actively.

My dear unborn child,

We all have to know what every single person can take action to stop climate change or to reduce it.

Dear my future children,

Sorry that my generation leaves such a polluted and depleted planet.

Dear future,

Maybe my future me got a different opinion about that topic and maybe will to help to solve the problem.

Dear future son or daughter,

This year I became a little more aware of how humanity has left nature and hurt it.

Dear future,

Everybody talks about it, but most politicians and big companies ignore these issues because they want to make more profit.

To my future self,

But the problem is that nothing will change until something absolutely terrible happens.

Dear daughter,

I think we should slowly stop focusing on informing about climate change because by now everybody knows that it exists. We really have to start to do something about it.

Dear fellow human,

Looking to the future of our earth, I hope that we’ll be able to save the incredible beauty of this planet.

Dear mom,

Many solutions that are good for us Europeans are a huge problem for other people in developing countries.

Dear Samuel, Willa, and Ben,

To the core of my being, and only through the power of community, I will honor the voices of the youth who are pleading, “Don’t burn my future.” Samuel, Willa, and Ben, your little voices I know, will join that chorus soon enough.

dear earth,

I promise those who walked the Earth before me and those who will walk the Earth after me that I will not stand by and let nature slip through my fingers.

Dear Chenoa,

We’re at a tipping point in society, and by the time we’re at 2050 I envision a society where maybe we’re less rich, but more happy– where we take delight in experiences more than things. We are traveling less, but enjoying life more.

Dear AJ,

I will do ALL I can, including running for office to stop destroying our planet and attempts to destroy our civility!

To our sweet grandson Caleb,

We want a safe and beautiful world for you, little Caleb, and for your children and grandchildren. We promise to do our part.

Dear L and N,

My biggest hope is that we will still have mountain trails to hike on, cold mountain lakes to fish in and soak our feet, and clear skies under which we will still marvel at the stars.

Dear Grandchildren,

I emailed legislators, governors and presidents. I petitioned politicians. I marched in protests and in climate strikes, I donated to environmental action networks. I talked to people I know and tried to persuade them to act. I raised awareness about divestment from fossil fuels.

Dear Grandchildren — August and any others who were born after him

I joined millions of other people who wrote letters and made calls urging our leaders to do more to care for the planet.

Dear Granddaughter,

Our ancestors are all around us, telling us what to do. Looking back to our history will guide us to our future.

Dear Maya,

Maya, my love, I promise to be courageous. I promise that when I face a decision, I will think of how it will impact you and your future. I promise that I’ll also step outside my individual decisions and add my weight to the forces that shift culture and systems.

by Chelsea Chandler

Hey Everyone!

I don’t know what is going to come of climate change and, as a fourteen year old girl, I’m scared.

Dear Maya Boyce,

I promise to try my best (and more) to continue your late brother’s amazing legacy of helping the planet in every way he could.

Dear Kuzgun,

Hope my individual efforts for tomorrow will be a benefit for you and your generation.

Dear ones,

My hope is that these letters drift into the wind and become a silly relic of time just before we came together to protect the world we love, and those we love within it.

Dear Soren,

In this world that is changing before our eyes, I believe that is our task: standing unflinchingly on the side of love, connecting with others, and forging ahead together.

Dear Oliver,

I am getting your father on board too so that we can double charge this together.

Dear Tomorrow,

The only way to survive it, even if you don’t feel like you’re winning, is to keep your hands on the rope.

by Caroline Lauer

To My Loved Ones,

I often wonder what the future will be. Will the wonders I have explored with you today still remain? Will the world look different? Will it feel different? Will I feel different?
