COVID-19 Update | Young Reporters Scotland - Reporting From Home

In light of the current global situation, the Young Reporters deadline of 27th March 2020 has been removed. We are in unprecedented times and due to the sudden behaviour change across the world, caused by many countries going into "lockdown", there have been significant and interesting environmental associations.

This is a unique situation to evaluate the implications that wide spread behaviour change has on our environment or simply on how you and your family are dealing with the sudden change to your daily lives.

We want to hear your stories. It could be around the current Covid-19 situation or not, it's up to you, it's your voice.
