Italy making climate change courses mandatory for schools

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

"This is a new model of civic education centered on sustainable development and climate change", the minister told The Telegraph.

Interested in Climate Change?

In a meeting in his Rome office on Monday, Fioramonti said all state schools would commit 33 hours out of every year, very almost one hour for each school week, to environmental change issues from the beginning of the following scholastic year in September.

Schools will be required to dedicate at least one hour per week to climate change issues as well as integrating the topic into traditional subjects such as geography, mathematics and physics. At the start of this school year, he said students would be excused from missing class to participate in Fridays for Future climate change protests.

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".

Jury selected for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone's trial
More than 80 prospective jurors arrived at federal district court in Washington, D.C., to potentially take part in the trial. While sidelined, he continued to connect with Trump and stayed plugged into his circle of advisers.

Cramarossa reported a panel of scientific authorities, like Jeffrey D. Sachs, director of Columbia University's Middle for Sustainable Enhancement, and American economic and social theorist Jeremy Rifkin, will enable the ministry redevelop the nationwide curriculum to pay extra notice to weather adjust and sustainability.

His proposal also reflects political divides within Italy: In September, Five Star Movement formed a ruling coalition with the centre-left Democratic Party in order to keep out the right wing League Party, led by Matteo Salvini, from the government.

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 want to represent the Italy that stands against all the things that Salvini does", Fioramonti said.

Mr. Fioramonti has also pushed for additional pro-environmental legislation in the government, including increased taxes on plastic and airplane tickets with the tax revenue going to battle climate change problems.

"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. "We have to build a different narrative and not be afraid of saying something Salvini may not like, because that's why we exist".
