Young people watch climate change meeting – level 2
Glasgow, Scotland, is holding the Climate Change Conference soon. At the conference, world leaders are going to negotiate how to stop climate change.
Thousands of young activists met in Sweden, because they wanted to remind leaders that they were going to watch the conference very closely. Young people planned strikes in more than 500 places in the world.
Swedish activist Greta Thunberg said that she was afraid of the result of the conference. Thunberg said that the situation was very serious, and young people would not let the leaders only talk and do nothing.
Difficult words: conference (an official meeting of people who have the same interest), negotiate (to discuss something and to officially agree), activist (a person who tries to make changes in politics or society)).
