Italy to Make Climate Change Study Compulsory in Schools

The whole education ministry will now be dedicated to climate change education and sustainable development.

From next year, Italian school students in every grade will be required to study climate change and sustainability, in an attempt to position the country as a world leader in environmental education.

"I want to make the Italian education system the first education system in that put the environment and society at the core of everything we learn in school", he said.

"The idea is that the citizens of the future need to be ready for the climate emergency", Cramarossa said.

Lorenzo Fioramonti, Italy's education minister announced that even subjects like geography, mathematics, and physics will be taught from the perspective of sustainability.

Fioramonti, of the Movement 5 Stars, a party with a strongly marked green, above all in its origins, is to the front of the portfolio of Education since September, and in recent months has been criticized for having encouraged students to skip classes to participate in demonstrations of the strike global climate, driven by the activist Swedish Greta Thunberg and that in Italy has had a great reception.

His proposals for new taxes on airline tickets, plastic and sugary foods to raise funds for education were also slammed by critics who said Italians were already over-taxed.

The Fox News poll was conducted by phone from October 27-30 from a random sample of 1,040 registered voters. Beto O'Rourke, who dropped out of the competition on Friday, obtained 1 % assist.

Regardless of the analysis, the administration's 2020 spending plan introduced to parliament this week included both the plastic charge and another expense on sugary drinks.

"I have been ridiculed by all as the fool of the village, and now the Government is using two of my proposals and it seems to me that more and more people are convinced that this is the way to go", said Fioramonti.

Fioramonti made the announcement during a culture committee of the Italian Senate this week.

The lessons will be given to pupils from first grade through high school.

Fioramonti is a 42-year-old lawmaker for the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement party, which has a history of supporting environmental policies.

For Fioramonti, climate change is just one of Italy's existential threats.

But when President Trump began pulling the United States out of the historic Paris Agreement this week, Fioramonti said that all countries should do their part to stop the "triumphs of the world, quot; and that his ambition was to show children that there was another way". 'We have to build a different narrative and not be afraid of saying something Salvini may not like, because that's why we exist'.
