Dear Future Me,

When I think about life in 2050, I can imagine two futures. One is a world destroyed. This world has been overcome by disaster, resource scarcity, and war, brought on by our inability to change our ways. The other is a world different than today, a little warmer maybe, but this world is better. There is equality. There are plenty of resources for everyone to thrive.

Dear all!

I hope my niece will have the chance to see a healthy coral reef, too.

Dear future loved ones,

Everyday I’m reminded how fragile democracy is which has made me realize how fragile everything in this world is: our political and economic structures, social systems, and certainly our planet.

Dear Kyle,

Tell your children that I only ask one thing of them. I ask that they are able to go outside and find the beauty wherever they can. Tell them this planet is a gift, and within it is a beauty incomparable to anything else.

Caro me stesso,

Non so dove e con chi sarò nel 2050, spero che sia un anno migliore di quello appena passato .

Caro Luca,

Spero che la nostra felicità coincida con uno stile di vita sano e che le nostre menti siano pure e pulite.

Dear me,

I’m in a moment where I’ve accepted I’m doing what I can do, and not doing what I won’t–I should fly less, but if everything is going to fall apart I want to LIVE.

Dear future generation,

I have come to realize by now that health is indeed everything that matters. To ensure that we need to bring about systematic changes and enforce them for the betterment of our environment.

Dear Jack,

Right now you are only a little over 5 weeks old, but you have truly changed my whole world. Your Mom and I always say that we thought we loved before you were born, but now that you have come into the world and we met you, our ability to love just expanded exponentially.

To the generation after mine,

But when you encounter that resistance–and you will, regularly–know that you must respond just how we have had to these past 50 years. With love, and sternness, and most of all, courage. Because that is what the resistance fears the most. We who came before you promise that we will do the same while we wait for you. Know that you will never be alone.

Dearest Finlay,

I hope you are healthy and happy and that you feel supported by the ecosystem around you because we are all deeply truly interconnected. We depend on the earth to take care of us, and nature needs us to take care of her in turn. We all need each other.

DEAR FRIENDS,

This morning I woke up knowing the world prioritizes economic gain over safety. Today I hope you woke up and didn’t have that feeling.

Dear Tomorrow,

We have taken far more than we ever should have allowed from the earth and it is now time to help her recover from the stress and destruction we have bestowed on her.

To my niece,

I am committing to using my voice to tell our law makers that my beautiful, Black, disabled niece has a place in this world. They will hear me tell them we need to commit to ending the abuse of this planet by the major corporations who fund them so that my little girl can have a home where she can be the next law maker, or hairstylist, or scientist, or engineer, or activist, or mom.

Dear future human,

I sit here from the perspective of a young person losing hope. In my 19 years of life I have watched racism, systematic oppression, greed, and a disregard for the earth’s living things and the way it has affected our society.

Dear next generation,

I promise to help others see that we must make a change in our daily lives in order to ensure that our future generations are able to enjoy the outdoors the same way we have.

Dear Mother,

I remember the first Christmas that wasn’t white. I think I knew by then that climate changes’ effects were happening around us and if we didn’t take actions soon it would be too late.

Dearest Wicomico,

We will start conversations with our parents and family to rethink our energy and dietary needs. We have learned that in order to enjoy more, we need to be less.

Dear Future Self,

I hope that you are one of the people that is demanding not only independent and personal changes but systematic changes.

Dear Mom and Dad,

It is silly to think that we will not be affected by climate change just because we live in a little, suburban neighborhood. Rather, I think you have to worry more about climate change.

by Katie Kelly

Dear Future Me,

I hope the planet was saved by people who stood by its side and let the planet’s resources thrive rather than leaving it to wallow in the sorrows of climate change that humans brought onto it. I

Dear Child,

The year is 2020 and climate change is getting worse and worse. The government has taken little to no action towards helping the stop global warming and climate change.

To My Future Children,

We don’t want to put our children in the position we were born into– a world that appears to be crumbling, physical disaster occurring around us, the threat of impending doom causing sickness to our Earth as it does to our heads. We won’t let you exist in a world like that.

Dear Future Self,

I hope especially my home town learned to grow with the rest of the world.

Dear future self,

I think it is my calling to work in a field that promotes environmental protection or policy and sustainability. While this is something to work for in the future, I need to start working right now to create a healthier and safer world, for all people, regardless of race, gender, or socio-economic status, and for all species that reside on Earth.

dear love-ones,

I hope you are part of change to fix it. That will be from small actionable items and also holding corps systems accountable.

Dear future Child…

As I do not want this for you, I promise to reanalyze and fix my carbon footprint, to mitigate my negative impacts on the environment and to treat the earth like the home it is.

Dear tomorrow,

In 2020, I promise to take action and reduce my carbon footprint to ensure a safe future.
