“None of us deserve to have our future stolen

This moving short film ‘shows parents’ confessions of fear and hope to their children as climate crisis intensifies’. Letters to our children, a powerful and emotional new video from Extinction Rebellion Families, offers a heartfelt message of love and grief from the generation currently ruining the planet to the ones who will inherit a climate-wrecked world – our own children.

108 individuals of all ages and backgrounds give voice to thoughts and segments from real letters written by concerned parents and carers across the globe to their children about the accelerating Climate & Ecological Emergency.

“I worry about your physical and mental health, about the toll that climate breakdown will have on you” 

“I am not powerless, I have a voice and will forever use it to fight to create a better future, because all the world’s children and grandchildren are ours”

“You are there to remind me that this is the fight of my life”

Claudia and Julie, who produced and created the film alongside fellow XR Families members Miranda and Isa, say:

Our aim is to keep it simple and emotional and cut through to the essential motivation for change – the biggest common denominator – our love and concern for all of our children and all future generations.
We want to encourage viewers to actively participate in creating a better, fairer and sustainable future, one built with life at the forefront of all decision-making processes; not profit over life.’

None of us deserves to have our future stolen!

Don’t be a bystander, get involved.
