COP: PAS

PAS - Priorità alla Scuola

In our modern society, schools are not conceived to raise future workers. "Priority to School" fights against politic's lack of interest side by side with all the school components. We are asking for a radical change that starts from the bottom. In order to increase new generations' awareness, we need to rethink the whole school system, an institution able to educate informed and mindful citizens. Schools can play a major role in tackling climate challenges. We dream about sustainable buildings and scholastic infrastructure, educational programs focused on environmental safeguard, and new educational approaches aimed to enhance the new generation's critical thinking. We ask for a more efficient and vast public transportation system, to achieve free and sustainable mobility and ensure the right to study for every student.
