David Hytch's Letter

To my grandchildren, as yet unborn,

I wish you all the joy in the world, and all the joy the world has to offer.

I have lived a rich and fulfilling life, too young to go to war, too old to see the demise of the planet. If you are reading this the world's leaders, bumbling procrastinators as they have been till now, will have finally faced up to the most fundamental issue: urgent steps to halt global warming, avert catastrophic climate change and safeguard biodiversity across the world must be taken now. I pray that leaders will look beyond short-term electoral advantage and act for future generations - your generation and beyond.

I wish you a life filled with peace and love and a beautiful sustainable world in which all creatures can flourish.
