The Environment
 
Rich: It’s an amazing story. Forest Green Rovers have won promotion to the professional league. They will be the smallest club to ever play professional football in England.

Jack: Yes, erm… Actually, I’ve never heard of them.

Rich: They also claim to be the most environmentally friendly club in the world.

Jack: Well, in this podcast we’re going to be talking much more the environment and what Premier League clubs and fans are doing to be more environmentally friendly.

Rich: Great.

Jack: And you can tell us a bit more about Forest Green Rovers, too - great name for a club that is environmentally friendly!

Welcome

Rich: Hello my name’s Rich

Jack: and I’m Jack.

Rich: and welcome to this week’s Premier Skills English podcast

Jack: Where we talk about football and help you with your English. What’s happening this week, Rich?

Rich: In this week’s show, as we’ve just said, we’re going to be talking about the environment.

Jack: That’s right. We’re going to be talking about some of the environmental problems that we have in the world right now.

Rich: And the things that organisations like football clubs are doing to be more environmentally friendly.

Jack: And we’re not only going to talk about big things. We’re also going to talk about five ways that everyone can help the environment.

Rich: We’re also going to focus on some different language that will help you talk about the environment in more detail.

Jack: There will be lots of vocabulary like environment, environmentally friendly and maybe eco-warrior!

Rich: And we’ll be focussing on conditional sentences like ‘If the world gets warmer the ice caps will melt’ or ‘If Liverpool win the cup I will be happy’.

Jack: But before all that, let’s look at the Premier League headlines.

Headlines

Rich: Chelsea lift the Premier League trophy!

Jack: Chelsea’s Premier League season finished on a high note when they lifted the Premier League trophy after a 5-1 win against Sunderland. The win gave the Blues their 30th league win of the season - a Premier League record!

Rich: Liverpool take final Champions League spot.

Jack: On the final day of the Premier League season Liverpool beat Arsenal to fourth place to seal a return to the Champions League next season. Arsenal will play in the Europa League after missing out on the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

Rich: Pogba and Mkhitaryan win Europa League for United!

Jack: After a difficult week for the city of Manchester, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan got the goals to give United a 2-0 win against Ajax in the Europa League final. It’s United’s first European trophy for 9 years and also means they will be playing in the Champions League next season.

Rich: So, the Premier League will have five teams in the Champions League next year.

Jack: Yes, it will be a very interesting summer. All those teams will be looking to do some transfer business.

Rich: Right, let’s move away from this week’s football and get to the main focus of this week’s podcast - the environment.

Main Topic - The Environment

Jack: Did you know that Manchester Utd are one of the most environmentally friendly clubs in the Premier League?

Rich: Yes, before we did this podcast I looked at what Premier League clubs are doing for the environment and there are lots of initiatives out there.

Jack: United have two main initiatives. One is called ‘Reds Go Green’ and the other is ‘United to Switch Off and Save.

Rich: The first ‘Reds Go Green’ is all about waste efficiency and recycling. 

Jack: The second ‘United to Switch Off and Save’  is about saving energy.

Rich: Some of the things that United do include recycling rainwater to be used for the pitch, they also have a lake at their training centre which recycles dirty water to be used for the training pitches. Materials such as glass, paper and plastic are reused or recycled, too.

Jack: They’ve also built new all-weather sports surfaces out of old trainers. The rubber surface at the edge of the Old Trafford pitch is made out of old trainers, too!

Rich: It’s great when materials can be recycled and used again like that but it’s not only Manchester Utd that are going green.

Jack: Arsenal recycle 10 tonnes of cardboard, plastic, and glass every month.

Rich: And Stoke City are backing a campaign to raise awareness about climate change.

Jack: The campaign is called ‘Show the Love’ and people are asked to wear green badges in the shape of a heart. The Stoke City manager, Mark Hughes, has worn the badge on the touchline for the past two seasons.

Rich: But, it’s not only football clubs that think about the environment. Football fans are doing their bit, too.

Jack: The Premier League and Football League encourage car sharing for away fans. There are national carshare websites for fans, and clubs like Chelsea even have their own car share initiative on their website.

Rich: Instead of one or two fans driving a car from Newcastle to Southampton for example, there is just one car with four or five fans in it.

Jack: This is a great initiative that helps cut carbon emissions from cars. A fan can check out the website and see who has got a spare seat in their car. And it’s more fun for fans to travel together, too.

Rich: But the most environmentally friendly club in the world must be Forest Green Rovers.

Jack: Yes, you mentioned this at the start of the podcast. Tell us more about Forest Green.

Rich: Well, they’ve just been promoted to the football league for the first time but they are more famous for their eco policies than their football.

Jack: What do they do at Forest Green?

Rich: You will need to take a look at their website but some of the things they do include, an organic football pitch with no chemicals - the groundsmen use Scottish seaweed to help the pitch grow.

Jack: Cool. What else?

Rich: They use solar panels to power electricity at the stadium, the players car-share to matches, and the club is totally vegan. No meat for the players or fans on matchdays.

Jack: No meat. That is good for the environment.

Rich: And they have plans to build an eco- park and will have the football stadium in the middle of it.

Jack: Yes, Forest Green are very green. I wonder what would happen if everyone was as environmentally friendly?

Five ways you can help the environment

Jack: So, that’s how football is becoming more environmentally aware. But what about us? What can we do to help the environment?

Rich: We have five things you can do to help the environment.

Jack: Number one: Recycle. We’ve heard what Manchester Utd and Arsenal are doing and we can do it, too.

Rich: What things can you recycle in your country? Plastic? Glass? Paper? How do you recycle? Where do you take the things you want to recycle?

Jack: Where I live, I have a special bin that I put glass and paper and plastics in and it gets taken away with the rubbish.

Rich: Yeah, I have to walk down to the end of the street and there’s a recycling bin for plastic and glass and paper.

Jack: OK... On to the next thing. Number two: Reuse. Before you recycle, think if you can still use it. Maybe you can use those trainers for another year or maybe if a jumper doesn’t fit or suit you, you can give it to a friend or your little brother.

Rich: Before you throw something away, think how you can reuse it. Or give it to charity. There is one charity called kitaid that collects old football kits to give to children across the world.

Jack: Number three: Reduce. We don’t need to use so much. Like Manchester United, switch off your lights when you don’t need them, turn off your electrical stuff totally - don’t leave them on standby.

Rich: Take your own bag to the shops. Say no to a plastic bag - they look horrible, too!

Jack: Number four: Raise awareness. Stoke City’s Mark Hughes wears a badge that raises awareness about climate change. That badge is seen by millions on the TV. What can we do to raise awareness of environmental problems and initiatives?

Rich: Share things on Facebook and social media, yes, but tell people we don’t know, too. Write a letter to a local politician or the council. Join a group that helps raise awareness of local and global problems.

Jack: Number five: Be responsible. Big companies, governments and football clubs can do a lot but individuals can do more if we are together. Think about what you buy. Are the companies that produce the things you use environmentally friendly? 

Rich: Does it make a difference if we recycle, reuse, reduce and raise awareness? Yes. Does it make a difference if nobody recycles, reuses, reduces or raises awareness? Yes.

Jack: If we are responsible for our environment others will copy us.

Rich: So there are our five ways to be more environmentally friendly. Here they are again:

Jack: Number one. Recycle. Plastic, paper and glass can often have another life.

Rich: Number two.Reuse . Don’t throw things away.

Jack: Number three. Reduce. Don’t use so much energy. Don’t use plastic bags.

Rich: Number four. Raise awareness. Tell others why our environment is important.

Jack: Number five. Be responsible. Let others follow your lead.

Language Focus

Rich: Let’s take a look at some sentences about the environment. Jack - what will happen if we don’t take care of our planet?

Jack: It will blow up! Bang!

Rich: That’s a bit strong. Anything else?

Jack: OK, um... The planet will get hotter. The ice caps will melt.  Sea levels will rise. There will be lots of floods and droughts and extreme weather across the world. It will cause lots of damage.

Rich: So, if we don’t take care of our planet, the ice caps will melt. This is an example of a conditional sentence.

Jack: And what can we do to stop this happening? Maybe we can use more public transport? Or use our cars less?

Rich: Yes, If we use public transport more, our cities will get cleaner. Another conditional sentence.

Jack: We use these conditional sentences about real events and what will probably happen if we take a specific action. Can you think of another?

Rich: If we turn off the lights when we don’t need them, we’ ll use less energy or If we recycle our rainwater we’ll save water.

Jack: We’d like you to write a few conditional sentences in the comments section at the bottom of this page. Can you think of something that we can do that will result in something positive for our environment?

Rich: If you want to read more about the environment we have some comics on the website that talk about different environmental topics. I’ve put a link on the side of this page if you want to take a look.

Can you work out this week’s football phrase?

Rich: Have you got a football phrase for us this week?

Jack: Yes, I have, but first, last week’s football phrase. The phrase was to lift the trophy. It’s a phrase that means to pick up a trophy and put it above your head. Like Chelsea and Manchester Utd did last week. 

Rich: Well done to Liubomyr, Kwesimanifest from Ghana, and Ahmed Adam Mamado from Sudan. You all got the right answer! What’s this week’s phrase?

Jack: This week’s phrase is to be on the *********. This is where the manager often is during a match, especially when he wants to give instructions to his team. This area of the pitch is also used by the assistant referee. 

Rich: And we mentioned it in this podcast when talking about Mark Hughes, the Stoke City manager. Go back and have a listen if you’re not sure what he phrase is.

Jack: Right, that’s all we have time for this week. 

Rich: Don’t forget to write your answers to our questions and make a guess at our football phrase in the comments below. 

Jack: Bye for now and enjoy your football!

Language - The First Conditional

In the podcast, Jack and Rich used some conditional sentences to talk about the environment. Here are a couple of examples:

If we don't take care of our planet, the ice caps will melt.

If we use public transport more, our cities will get cleaner.

These conditionals are often called first conditionals which are used to describe real and possible situations. It is possible to use public transport more and the result of this happening would be our cities getting cleaner.

We create the first conditional by using if plus the present simple and then will in the second part of the sentence. You can also reverse this and begin the sentence with 'will'. In addition to the above, you could say:

The ice caps will melt, iwe don't take care of our planet.

Our cities will get cleaner, iwe use public transport more.

1-They could start some initiatives like collecting recycle things to make team kits, shorts or socks. If the fans attended this campaign club might offer discounted tickets or books about team's history.
Here is a project, we are informed that, Turkish national football team's kits have been produced from recycle of pet bottles. Thirteen bottles used for each kit.

2- Unfortunately, as it's been in the developing countries here people have no enough environmentally aware. Recycling initiatives and investments especially by municipalities are successful but many people already aren't decomposing household waste. Bu still there is no consciousness of recycling. Thankfully now people more sensitive to environment than ever.

3- I absolutely agree with them. I recycle plastic and glass. There are bins which is settled on the street in order to collect them. There are also street waste collectors as a new occupation. I don't throw away trainers and dress. I give them to the people or put them in the re-use bin. There is also donation option to the food or dress bank. Last year plastic bag are banned. I take own bag to the shop. I use my car only for shopping.

PHRASES

Ice cap melting must be in the agenda of the states and people have to combat for it .

We must claim that factories should have chimney filter not to air pollution on social media.

P.S.

• I prefer use "Environmentally friendly" phrase rather than "Eco-warrior". This issue is subject of volunteering not battle-:)

In my country people are aware of the environmental issues. The five points which you mentioned are already in place in Zimbabwe. There are penalties for breaking the rules.Old cars are not allowed on our roads. It is mandatory for companies that use plastic bottles to provide special bins on shopping malls. Plastic manufacturing companies are required to produce thick plastic bags, those plastic bags with over 30 microns.

Even one club can make a difference by giving good example to other clubs. It is extremely important to raise awareness on global warming on time. Forest Green are an excellent example. Football in UK is miles away from all other leagues. Always taking initiative and facing the real problems we're dealing with.

More than a year to leave a comment but I just found this excellent podcast today.
I really appreciate football clubs environmental initiatives. It is always important to have representative figures, like famous players, artists or known institutions, supporting a cause. This is part of the "raise awareness" and "be responsible" suggested by you. I agree completely with the 5 suggestion, although I need recycle more things.
In Brazil most people are not environmental aware and, depending on the neighborhood, there are no available recycle services. At least I think kids are more conscious about the environment nowadays.

Thanks for your comment, Rafael. Your support is appreciated. 

I think it's a good thing that we can link football and the environment and other social issues as it helps us reach people who sometimes may not think about these things so much.

This podcast comes with downloadable worksheets for the classroom, too. If you know anybody who could use them, feel free to pass them on!

I have to be honest that not so many pople in my country are fully invironmentally aware, but they do know the importance of reducing and reusing things and how the activities being done by them would affect the invironment positively or negatively. It isn't easy to recycle things with my pair hands where I live, insead old papers, useless glasses, and plastic bottles are all being collected to be recycled by the workers imployed by the government.

Yes, football clubs can make a masive difference. Whether you live in a city, a small town or even a tiny village, it's more likely to have at least one football club around you. A football club is not just all about kicking the ball around to score goals and winning trophies, it is much more than that. It's an institution having a message to deliver. Football clubs always have loads of supporters and of course these supporters are inthusiastic to share the activities being ran by their favourite clubs. From humantarian aids, to doing work for charity and raising awarness of any important issue like: climate change, global warming and keeping the invironment clean. In fact, I think not only a football club but also any institution or organization if managed wisely, it can play an imortant role in the society.

Its not easy to recycle waste in my country even though some few initiatives are being taken to recycle waste. The biggest problem is the lack of landfill sites for disposal of waste.
Most of our waste ain't segregated though the central government through private organization are taking steps to help recycle paper materials for further use.

I think the various football clubs different environmental initiatives are a step in the right direction. Small as it may be, it is a good start. I hope other clubs will join soon.

Even one club can make a difference by giving good example to other clubs. It is extremely important to raise awareness on global warming on time. Forest Green are an excellent example. Football in UK is miles away from all other leagues. Always taking initiative and facing the real problems we're dealing with.

Apart for for this new professional club I don't think actions spoken about in the podcast can make a difference.

Some public and associative actions can be awarding.

There are still a lot to do both in research and politics to change earth condition.

If I am powerful I will promote a No growth Institute with Malthus as a classical thinker.

Word , *********.
