Recognizing the importance of promoting environmental education from an early age, the government has recently introduced it to the national curriculum as an independent subject.
"The addition of the textbook 'Humans and Environment' to the curriculum of secondary schools last year, marked the formal entrance of the environment into the national system of education as a scientific topic," said Abolqasem Mousavi, head of the Department of Environment's education office.
"The book contains seven chapter headings, including biodiversity, pollutants, water, waste, air and tourism, and came out of one year of intensive joint work by textbook writers and environmental experts," he told IRNA on Saturday.
Iran has been wrestling with a range of escalating environmental challenges, from dust storms and water scarcity to air pollution and deforestation.
