Dalai Lama Speaks with Greta – level 3

20-01-2021 15:00

Last week, the Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, virtually met the Swedish climate activist and one of the world’s most recognizable individuals, Greta Thunberg.

They were joined by two leading climate scientists for a discussion titled ’The Crisis of Climate Feedback Loops’. The Dalai Lama honored the courage that Thunberg and millions of young people around the world were demonstrating by standing up for and demanding climate justice. His primary message throughout the event was that all 7.8 billion humans needed to think and act as a single community.

The Dalai Lama said that he felt real hope after hearing Thunberg speak while Thunberg urged people to educate themselves on climate issues.

Difficult words: recognizable (somebody who people can immediately identify), climate feedback loop (something that speeds up or slows down a climate change), climate justice (a term that is used to frame global warming as an ethical and political issue rather than a purely environmental or natural issue).
