Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is a network of international youth engaged in environmental journalism and Education for Sustainable Development. It is coordinated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and operates in 30 countries.
YRE is aiming to develop participants’ skills and knowledge, for example, giving them a deeper understanding of sustainable development, enhancing their communication and citizenship skills, individual initiative, team work, critical analysis, social responsibility and leadership abilities.
At WEEC young reporters from Sweden, Slovakia and Turkey participated and wrote reports from the congress.
The project is being carried out with financial support from the Swedish Institute.
