Environmental issues are key to worldwide social and economic development. The awareness about the existence of this problem is, by now, globally widespread; however awareness by itself does not represent a solution to the problem. Today, more than ever, we need to develop study programs, from school levels up to the university (bachelor and master’s degrees) in which disciplines allowing to train professionals on specific skills related to the various environmental issues as well as citizens who are aware about the reality of environmental sustainability.
