Last November in collaboration with BBC Northern Ireland School Report Team, the Eco-Schools team organised two workshops to enable post-primary school pupils aged 11-19 to better understand journalistic techniques of written-, video- and photo-reportage, before taking off with their YRE projects for the 2019 campaign. All Northern Ireland post-primary schools were invited to take part to these two events. The response was successful: of the total of schools registered for this year’s YRE programme, 75% of them attended the events, with over 90 pupils participating in the 1-day workshops in Lisburn and Magherafelt.
