Young Reporters for the Environment

Welcome to Young Reporters for the Environment

Share your voice on an international stage

What is Young Reporters for the Environment?

Young Reporters for the Environment is an environmental journalism programme that gives young people the opportunity to share their thoughts on environmental issues they feel strongly about through writing, photography, and videos.

It is also an international competition and a network of nearly 500,000 young people worldwide actively speaking up for and protecting the environment.

Suitable for youth groups, school photography clubs or yearbook groups, Eco-Committees and uniform groups like Scouts or Girl Guides or you can register just yourself as an individual!
