And New Zealand takes pole position:
Every school in New Zealand will this year have access to materials about the climate crisis written by the country’s leading science agencies – including tools for students to plan their own activism, and to process their feelings of “eco-anxiety” over global heating.
Maybe they wouldn’t need to ‘process their feelings’ if climate activists weren’t allowed to disrupt normal life all the time?
Young people feel betrayed and abandoned by older generations over their lack of action on the climate issue, and worry about it has increasingly sparked anxiety and depression, a group of British psychologists warned in September.
Materials created for teachers that were provided to the Guardian suggest students keep a “feelings thermometer” to track their emotions, learn how to change defeatist self-talk, and consider how their feelings could generate action and response.
Or they could just get on with learning and maybe help man’s ingenuity engineer new ways to cope with the changing climate?
Because it’s not going to stop changing, no matter what we do…
Nor is the desire to get out in front of a woke craze going to stop anytime soon, either:
Italy will this year become the first country in the world to make sustainability and the climate crisis compulsory subjects for students, with material integrated into regular lessons, such as mathematics and geography.
Will they mention its effect on the spaghetti harvest, I wonder?
