Young Reporters for the Environment

Be a voice for our Environment!

Australia has joined a network of more than 36 countries participating in Young Reporters for the Environment, a Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) program.

Young Reporters for the Environment Australia (YRE) aims to inspire young people to seek out solutions to environmental issues in their communities and to share their findings through writing, photography, or video.

Keep Australia Beautiful have partnered with the Mars Wrigley Foundation to offer the Young Reporters For The Environment Litter Less Campaign to Australian students. This well-established and internationally recognised program will be offering enthusiastic young people a chance to make their voices heard and to feel that they are being listened to.

YRE Litter Less aims to educate young people on the issue of litter, and encourage them to make positive choices leading to long-term behaviour change.

If you’re aged between 11-25 this is your opportunity to win cool prizes for your school, meet other young environmental newshounds at a Winner’s Workshop and awards ceremony and have your work submitted to the International YRE competition!
