Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is an international programme (run by FEE and
represented locally by Nature Trust – FEE Malta) designed specifically for upper primary, secondary and post-secondary students. The main aim is to empower young people to take a stand on environmental issues they feel strong about and to give them a platform to articulate these issues through the media of writing, photography or video. Schools from primary, secondary and post secondary sectors are invited to participate. An information session / teacher training session will be held online on Thursday 2nd December 2021 from 10am – 11am. For those who cannot attend, the session will be recorded.

As a part of the YRE programme, an annual international competition is held for the top articles, photos and videos produced by students over the year and the winning entries receive international recognition. YRE students also have the chance to participate in national and international conferences such as COP to report on high level events and to further build their skills and network. They are also offered training and opportunities to enhance their communication skills.
