Join the Young Reporters for the Environment Programme

make a difference!

Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is one out of five programmes run by Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). The programme aims to empower young people to take an educated stand on environmental issues they feel strongly about and to give them a platform to articulate these issues through the media of writing, photography or video. The programme offers young generations a chance to make their voices heard while improving their writing and presentation skills.

The advantages of the Young Reporters for the Environment programme are many and varied: from the primary objectives of environmental protection and education for sustainable development, to the rewards such accreditation brings in the form of more awareness and a higher level of environmental responsibility among the participants and those they influence in their community.
