Italy to make teaching climate change compulsory at school

Lorenzo Fioramonti, Italy's Education Minister, announced his decision to require 6 to 19 year olds to have a minimum of one hour a week on topics like ocean pollution, sustainable living and renewable resources as well as to incorporate the environmental theme across the Italian curriculum.

The minister, a former professor of Economics, University of Pretoria, in south Africa, also has been reported that the teachers taught lessons on environment and sustainable development at all stages of compulsory education.

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

Fioramonti came under fire in September after encouraging schools to permit students to skip school in order to participate in climate protests.

"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.

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

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 was ridiculed by everyone and treated like a village idiot, and now a few months later the government is using two of those proposals and it seems to me more and more people are convinced it is the way to go", Fioramonti said.

"There will be more attention to climate change when teaching those traditional subjects", he explained.

Fioramonti, aneconomics professor at South Africa's Pretoria University, told Reuters in an job interview that the full ministry "is now being improved to make sustainability and weather the middle of the schooling product".

The new Italian budget tabled by the leftist coalition of the Five star Movement and the Democratic Party (PD) will also look to increase places to hire around 24,000 temporary workers in the education sector by the end of September of next year.

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".
