DearTomorrow is a unique type of archive. Instead of collecting bits of the past for current research and scholarship, it is collecting letters to the future. With climate change a very real consequence of the human use of fossil fuels, DearTomorrow "is inspiring people to send open letters, photos and videos about climate change to loved ones living in the future." Messages will be held in the DearTomorrow archive and released in 2030 and 2050. Letters may contain thoughts on climate change, promises to make personal changes to mitigate climate change, or any message intended for future loved ones. Submitting a message is easy and there are options for keeping your message private, sharing it publicly, or adding a photo or video. The Help Writing Messages section also offers helpful prompts to get you going on this difficult and important topic. Public messages are viewable on the site and contain heartfelt and touching memories of times spent outdoors, as well as pledges to drive less, to be mindful of waste, and to be ruthless fighters for climate science and climate change awareness.
