Young Reporters for the Environment

The Young Reporters for the Environment competition (YRE) aims to empower young people aged 11-25 to take a stand on environmental issues that they feel strongly about and to give them a platform to articulate these issues through the media of writing, photography or video.

Program Goals

The goal of  YRE is to give a voice to our youth and affect long-term behaviour change. It aims to empower young people and give them a platform to articulate the environmental issues that concern them.
