 Starting next year to the Italian school students will be required to study climate change and sustainability in an effort to position the country as a world leader in environmental education.

Education Minister Lorenzo Fioramonti said all public schools would include about 33 hours a year in their curricula to study climate change issues.

"The idea is that citizens of the future should be ready for the urgency of climate," said Fioramont spokesman Vincenzo Cramarossa.

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

It is the first time that there is a compulsory national education on climate change. Earlier the Minister of Education has supported student-raised protests over the cause.
