Include climate change in education curriculum: Dushyant

Chandigarh, Nov 16 : Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala on Saturday urged Ministry of Human Resource Development Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank to include climate change and sustainability classes in the education curriculum.

In a letter sent to the Minister, the Deputy Chief Minister said keeping in view the fact that climate change is one of the major challenges being faced by developing countries, which has severe impact on the health of every citizen, the climate change and sustainability classes as a pan of curriculum in education policy should be introduced throughout the country.

In the letter, Dushyant while giving an example of Italy, said that recently, Italy has become the first country to make Climate Change and Sustainability Classes compulsory in schools.

Thus such learning and awareness should begin right from primary to higher education level so that the future generation would recognise the importance of climate and sustainable development.
