LETTERS TO THE FUTURE: CELEBRATING EARTH DAY with 2121 in mind

Today, too many are in denial about the human impact on global climate change. By writing to someone in the future, we can’t deny their existence. By writing to them, we create a connection to them. Being able to connect with our progeny raises the stakes for us now. It lengthens the “care horizon” beyond our lifetime. It encourages us to do all we can now to protect our planet, its future generations and the animals we coevolved with.
