Italy is changing its ways now and is now making efforts to support the climate protests and raise awareness among the people of the world related to the issue. A global Climate Strike is to be held on 27th September Friday and Education minister, Lorenzo Fioramonti in a Facebook post has urged the students to skip their classes and attend this protests as it is essential that the world sees how grave of an issue this is and why we should pay more attention to this more than anything else in the world right now. Around 475,000 people took part in the global climate strike in Italy on 15th of March and more people are expected to join the latest demonstrations in the major cities including Rome, Milan, Turin, Florence, Naples, Bologna, and Bari. Italy is battling its own concerns for the climate as the nation is seeing more changes in its ecosystem which comprises of the marine life as a prime source of income for the economy. Italy has recently recovered from an economic as well as political crisis, so the nation is in a fragile state.
