Awareness on the Rise:
Movements such as Fridays for Future and Extinction Rebellion have gained strength in Spain, leading to protests and demanding concrete actions to combat climate change.
Gradual Integration into the School Curriculum:
Climate change education has begun to be integrated into school curricula, albeit gradually and variably among different regions of the country. An interdisciplinary approach is observed, addressing not only the scientific aspects, but also the economic, social and ethical aspects associated with the problem.
Specific Educational Programs:
Some educational institutions and NGOs have implemented specific programs to raise awareness and educate students about climate change. The programs often include hands-on activities and projects to encourage the active participation of young people in the fight against global warming.
An example of such programs is “Bibliokepos” which brings the topic to debate in different libraries in Seville. Another example of this growing awareness of climate change is that even the medical community is calling for climate change training to be included in medical degrees in Spain.
