Cleaner Future – level 1

24-06-2020 07:00

The coronavirus makes a lot of changes in the world. Many people stay in hospitals. People cannot meet each other. People have other health problems, too.

Many shops and businesses close. They lose a lot of money. Economies stop. The situation is bad.

However, some people believe that a bad situation can have a good result. The coronavirus crisis is a chance to change some bad things. People say that something must change. Countries must change their industries. It is important to use cleaner energy. Companies must build more modern buildings. Factories must reduce emissions.

It is necessary to change the way that people think. They must think of a good future for everyone. People must not harm the natural world.

Difficult words: economy (the business of a country), crisis (a very hard and difficult situation), emission (the gas that mainly cars and factories make).
