SINGER/ACTRESS Nadine Lustre believes that children should be taught to care for the environment in school.

“Environmentalism should be a curriculum in school. It should be taught at a very young age [and] continuously so kids grow up being aware and compassionate with everything that coexists with us,” Lustre said.

She issued the statement after days of extending help to those who were affected by typhoon Odette.

Lustre has rendered community work with Greenpeace Philippines.

“Don’t get me wrong… I learned a lot in school, but I think 6 years of repeated history was a waste of time. Same topic for six whole years. The only thing that changed were the brand of the books,” the actress said.
