Education and Technical Education Minister Tareq Shawqi and Environment Minister Yasmine Fouad attended on Monday the ceremony of launching Trainings of Trainers (ToT) Program on climate change issues.
This large program that will last until August 11 offers an opportunity for holding training seminars for teachers and directors under the theme of "Supporting skills of teachers and directors in developing student awareness about climate change in the light of sustainable development requirements."
Shawqi said he is taking pleasure to participate in the inauguration of this important event to raise awareness about "climate change," a most important issue that concerns humanity and affects the present and future of life on the planet.
He added the bright future of coming generations can only be achieved by the promotion of joint action in different sectors, taking into account that the climate change issue is not solely a local phenomenon, but has global and historical dimensions.
He highlighted President Abdel Fattah El Sisi 's invitation to the world community to hold COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh in November.
Shawqi went on to say his ministry is a key and active partner with all parties concerned in issues important for the society, with particular focus on climate change.
ToT program aims to raise the student awareness about this vital issue through the creation of generations, whose task is to protect the environment and mitigate the bad impacts of climate change in order to protect the right of all to live in a clean, healthy and sustainable environment, according to him.
This important issue is included in new Education 2.0 curriculum as part of Egypt Vision 2030, the minister asserted.
In turn, Fouad thanked the education minister for his belief in the importance of the inclusion of environmental terms and notions in school curriculums to create a generation that is well aware of how to overcome climate change that "threatens people all around the world with food and water scarcity, increased flooding, extreme heat, more disease, and economic loss".
