Norvergence – Climate Change Lessons is now compulsory in Italy’s Schools

According to a new law (read and analyzed by Norvergence), Italy‘s schools will have climate change lessons in its curriculum. From September 2020, students in Italy will learn about climate change in civic classes and it will also be an integral part of physics and math curriculum.

Lorenzo Fioramonti, Italy’s education minister told Reuters, “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.”

“The entire ministry is being changed to make sustainability and climate the center of the education model.” Norvergence found that every state school in Italy will dedicate 33 hours per year to teach about climate change issues.

Fioramonti also said that a country’s economic success should not measure only on the grounds of the gross domestic product as its efforts to tackle climate change should also consider.
He has written several books and has been a target of opposition since he became a minster.
