The Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of Tibet, and he is interested in global problems. Last week, he spoke to Greta Thunberg. Greta Thunberg is a Swedish girl who became a leader of young people who wanted to stop climate change.

The Dalai Lama, Thunberg, and two scientists spoke about the climate crisis. The Dalai Lama said that Thunberg was a very brave young woman and that she gave him hope for a better future.

The Dalai Lama said that all people in the world had to think and work together. Thunberg said that people needed to learn more about climate problems and do something to stop them.

Difficult words: climate change (the change of usual weather of the planet), climate crisis (the changes of the usual weather of the planet which are dangerous for people, and it is not possible to stop them), hope (the feeling that something good will happen).
