Prince Charles in passionate GMB speech calling for children’s education change

Prince Charles appeared on Good Moring Britain on Wednesday to make a passionate speech as she called change for children's education.

The Prince of Wales, 71, spoke exclusively on the ITV breakfast show about protecting out planet.

It follows the news that campaign groups from more than 40 countries are saying urgent action is needed to stop more species becoming extinct.

Conversationalists are asking for £550 billion for worldwide conversation.

Prince Charles told viewers that we have reached a "reset moment" in our relationship with nature and called for a change in the way children are educated about conservation.

He said: "As a first step if we are to restore the critical balance between people and planet we need to protect and invest in nature.

"After all, nature is central to all aspects of our existence from the air we breathe and shelter to our spiritual and cultural wellbeing.

"This virtuous circle of nature is something the world's indigenous people understand only too well, and is why we should listen and learn from the profound wisdom of their sixth sense.

He added: "Something we have rationally and tragically discarded irrelevant in a modern world.

"As we focus on these situations on a local level we also need to think about scale.

"We need to explore ceos-boarder efforts to maintain and restore highly biodiverse ecosystems."

Prince Charles recently highlighted the impact of the pandemic on young people, saying it is a "particularly difficult time to be young".

In a rare article, published in the Sunday Telegraph, the heir to the Irish throne suggested there could be one million young people "needing urgent help".

He said the challenge of helping those in need was "unquestionably vast, but it is not insurmountable".

Writing in the Telegraph, Prince Charles said: "For anyone, this is a difficult time – but it is a particularly difficult time to be young."

He compared the current situation to "other times when hope was scarce" – citing the concerns over youth unemployment in the 1970s that prompted him to set up his charity the Prince's Trust.

The charity helps people aged between 11 and 30 seek employment opportunities and life skills.

"This year, we celebrate the fact that over the last nearly 45 years, we have helped a million young people to change their lives for the better," he said.
