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.

All public schools will include about 33 hours a year in their curricula to study issues linked to climate change.

Education Minister Lorenzo Fioramonti said “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”.
