    At least someone is getting it out there.

    When children return to class in September 2020 after their summer holidays, their annual curriculum will also include 33 hours — approximately one per school week — dedicated to climate change and sustainable development.

    "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," Fioramonti explained to Reuters.
    "The entire ministry is being changed to make sustainability and climate the centre of the education model," he added.

    You get a free pass to skip school on "fridays for the future" to join in climate protests? I'd just skip and do something else-three day weekends!

    Yes and I saw nothing in it that would help climate change even if it actually were a threat. All I see is someone trying to advance an agenda that can't be defended with facts.

    IMO its basically about making them aware of it, how it happens and the dangers of it. I would think prevention would be part of the education as well.

    Um, I remember learning about climate change in school like 20 years ago.

    All this recent climate change stuff in the media is just pure hysteria. Nothing more.
