在PTE中,无论是Summarise Spoken Text 还是 Re-tell Lecture的考题大都是从真实的讲座或者演讲中截取的,中间经常经常夹杂很多不同的环境音.很多同学都反映有时未必是听不懂,而是听不到. 鉴于此,墨尔本文波雅思PTE专门为大家总结了真实讲座的PTE练习音频,相比新闻音频来说,整体更加接近PTE考试的真题,内容方面,我们也会为大家提供考试中存在的近似题,最近我们会持续更新,敬请期待!
Today’s economy: materials are extracted, products manufactured, used and thrown away at as low a cost as possible.
This cycle is not only polluting, it is unsustainable in a planet with limited resources.
But, it can be improved.
Have you heard about the circular economy? Products stay in the economy for longer, and at the end of their life they are reused, repaired, remanufactured, upgraded or recycled.
Truly creating a circular economy could give a €1.8 trillion boost to the European economy.
That’s the same amount as Italy’s entire economy.
It would also be good for the environment: reducing the damaging extraction of raw materials, improving air quality by reducing incineration and preventing toxic residues leaking into the soil through landfill waste sites.
But what about people?
It is estimated that for every 10,000 tonnes of waste: 1 job can be created if that waste is incinerated, 6 jobs if it is landfilled, 36 if it is recycled and 296 if it is reused.
Examples from all around Europe show that when people and social enterprises are able to get involved in the circular economy, the social, environmental and financial benefits are enjoyed by all.
On 2 December, the European Commission published the circular economy package, which places people at a secondary level.
The Greens are calling for a better integration of people’s interests in the circular economy, such as stronger support for citizen’s initiatives and social enterprises and a stronger focus on green job creation.
This is why the greens are calling for 5 things to change in the package.
