Programs & Awards - Young Reporters for the Environment

The Young Reporters for the Environment Program is designed for university students who are concerned about the environment. This program aims to achieve the following: to empower students to take on an active role in their own education, to give them knowledge about the professional world, to help them better understand their countries' dynamics, to encourage project-based teaching and to introduce new teaching methods.

Participants can apply as groups of 1 to 5 members. The teams will carry out a journalistic inquiry of a local problem linked to environmental and scientific issues. Projects will be grouped under 6 topics: Coastline, Agriculture, Water, Energy, Cities and Waste. Results of the research must be presented in report form and should not exceed 4000 words. Photos, information charts, interviews and other supporting materials can be included in the projects.

Our program is adopted from the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), a non-profit, non-governmental organization consisting of Member organizations representing 28 countries in Europe and other parts of the world. Every year we select the best reports to be rewarded and displayed in the Foundation exhibition.
