Don’t have any idea on what topic to discuss for Premium Talking Today? Then, please check out this article by CNN.

Starting 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.

Education Minister Lorenzo Fioramonti said all public schools will include about 33 hours a year in their curricula to study issues linked to climate change. The lessons will be built into existing civics classes, which will have an “environmentalist footprint” from September 2020, VincenzoCramarossa, Fioramonti’s spokesman, told CNN.

“The idea is that the citizens of the future need to be ready for the climate emergency. In addition, sustainable development will appear in more traditional subjects, such as geography, math and physics,” Cramarossa said. “There will be more attention to climate change when teaching those traditional subjects,” he explained.
