State schools will begin incorporating the UN's 2030 agenda for sustainable development into as many subjects as possible from September, with one hour a week dedicated to themes including global heating and humans' influence on the planet.

"The entire ministry is being changed to make sustainability and climate the center of the education model", Fioramonti told Reuters.

Fioramonti, 42, the writer of a few books contending total national output should never again be utilized as the fundamental proportion of nations' financial achievement, has been an objective of the conservative resistance since turning into a priest in the two-month-old administration of 5-Star and the middle left Democratic Party. "Forget that", Fioramonti said.

According to a report in United Kingdom newspaper The Telegraph the syllabus will be based on theUnited Nations' 17 sustainable development goals, including how to live more sustainably, how to combat the pollution of the oceans and how to address poverty and social injustice.

Fioramonti has been a vocal supporter of green policies in government.

In doing this, Italy will become the first country in the world to make the study of climate change and sustainable development compulsory.

The minister has indicated that civic lessons would revolve around the challenges of climate change.

Fioramanti suggested that Salvini needed to be educated. "And I want to secure this before there is any change in government that can imperil that kind of process". At the start of this school year, he said students would be excused from missing class to participate in Fridays for Future climate change protests. He said that the conditions had not been right to go forward with the new curriculum then, but that they were now.

Even so, many Italians are concerned that Five Star's emphasis on environmental problems, or perhaps, his failure to achieve such goals competently, is destroying the country's economy.

This month, Italy faced a new economic emergency when the foreign operator of a southern Italian steel plant, Ilva, said it would pull out because the 5-Star-led government had chose to end criminal immunity for environmental breaches even as the company sought to clean up the polluted facilities.

An environmental activist expressed reservations that Mr. Fioramonti's plan may be too dogmatic.

Our children are the ones who will have to deal with the bad environmental consequences if things do not change.

"The 21st-century citizen", he said, "must be a sustainable citizen".

"I want to represent the Italy that stands against all the things that Salvini does", Fioramonti said.
