The acting Minister of Education and Professional Training, Isabel Celaá, has held a meeting, within the framework of the COP25 Climate Conference, with a group of high school and FP students from different autonomous communities. In addition, the event has had the participation of naturalist Joaquín Araujo and a representative of the Fridays For Future Spain movement, which has maintained a colloquium with other students involved in sustainable education projects.

"We are here because we want to hear what you have to say, because your vision is important." This is how Isabel Celaá began her intervention aimed at students from the CPIFP San Blas (Teruel), the IES Cangas del Narcea (Asturias), IES Valle de Aller (Asturias) and the IES Pare Vitòria (Alicante), gathered in the Ágora de la Green zone of COP25.

The acting minister has reiterated her commitment and that of the Government to incorporate environmental education and for sustainable development within the subject of civic values. "Spain fully understands the importance of taking a definitive step in sustainable development, in responsibility for the environment," said the spokeswoman. "All ministries are involved in the task of achieving a just transition and to be fair it has to be socially equitable. And for that we need education," he added.

After his intervention, naturalist Joaquín Araujo has taken the stage, who has talked about the need to resume contact with nature to learn to take care of it and achieve a sustainable coexistence. After him, a colloquium has taken place between students from different places, including a representative of the Fridays for Future Spain movement.

Finally, high school students and invited FP have read a joint manifesto in which they claim their role in the fight against climate change: "We are not the lost generation, we are the generation of change."

Celaá has highlighted the crucial role of young people in the fight against climate emergency. "If we join our efforts we will go much further. You, young people, will be responsible for political and business tomorrow, and if we bring together all our environmental sensitivity, we will be able to win the future," the minister concluded.
