Environmental education will be studied in school, but little change is currently

The teacher has covered many environmental topics. Deputy Secretary-General in charge of Environmental Affairs: “The goal is to standardize and standardize this knowledge.” In addition to waste management, biodiversity, nutrition and food waste will also be studied, but there is still a long way to go to make environmental education a real discipline.

On January 14, Barbara Degani, Deputy Minister of the Environment, announced at the end of the meeting held in Kone that environmental education From the next school year 2015/2016, it will become the school’s teaching theme. From kindergarten to high school, pollution, CO2 emissions, waste management and other forms of sustainable energy will soon become topics in the classroom. A novelty, almost a novelty, because serious and responsible teachers have covered many of these topics in their courses. However, the goal of the project implemented with Miur is to make this phenomenon not a sporadic incident, but a norm for Italian schools.

“This environmental knowledge must be standardized at the national level This is very important for our children and for our children. “Going to Italy-he continued-we learned a lot of educational pathways about environmental issues, but unfortunately, these processes happen sporadically.” As the Ministry of Environment, “We are worried that environmental issues will eventually be in’good schools’ Find the location.”

The project includes guidelines developed by Degani himself in cooperation with the Ministry of Education, which will be presented at a joint press conference on Miur by the Ministry of Environment. “Part of the content-the explanation of the deputy minister-is the 2009 guidelines (by the then minister, Stefania Prestigiacomo) responsible for the environment and Maria Stella Gilmini (Mariastella Gelmini) is responsible for education) drafting, for example, on biodiversity and waste management; some have been discounted; the rest are themed from scratch, on the theme of food waste, which was completely absent in 2009.

“Obviously, all these are open jobs-Degani emphasized -Because we are waiting for the advice of trainers, teaching staff and all those engaged in environmental education (such as environmental associations).
Ten macro themes will be addressed, which will become the basis for this new “discipline”: from biodiversity to nutrition and food waste, to waste management.

So what will happen?Not much at the moment, because there is no real time for environmental education, But the teaching content will be scattered among various school subjects. The hope of the Ministry of Environment is that one day environmental education can become a real subject, but the road is still very long, mainly involving the Ministry of Education. As Degani explained, it must be pointed out “where to place it in teaching, how to place it and The most important thing is someone who can teach it.”
