Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE)

Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is a network of passionate young people educating for sustainable development by producing creative and engaging environmental journalism. Coordinated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), YRE is in more than 30 countries worldwide and growing! Northern Ireland is proudly one of these countries thanks to the excellent participation of our students and teachers. 

Through the support of Mars Wrigley Foundation, we are delighted to support schools in implementing their anti-litter and waste projects to reduce waste production, pollution and promote positive behaviour change to protect our biodiversity and improve our communities. 

At Eco-Schools, we celebrate inclusivity and have opened the registration for the Young Reporters for the Environment Competition to Special Educational Needs Schools and P7 pupils. Pupils 10+ will have the opportunity to share their environmental message by being creative through a photo campaign accompanied by a catchy phrase or a slogan, which your school could use as new Eco-Code if applying for a Green Flag. Watch here for tips on a successful YRE entry.

Prize money is available for this project.
