National Young Reporters for the Environment (NYRE) Competition
About the Competition
Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is an international programme operated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), the world's largest environmental education organisation. The programme, which has active members from 77 countries, provides an opportunity for young people to discuss environmental issues using writing, photography, or videography. Based on that, this programme also empowers young people to gain knowledge and take a stand on environmental issues that involve themselves and the communities they live in.
As the national operator of YRE Malaysia, Green Growth Asia Foundation (GGAF) is organising the National Young Reporters for the Environment (NYRE) programme for this year, which will feature numerous interesting workshops as well as competitions at various levels. Interested individuals can participate at the state level before being selected for the next national level, where they will represent their country at the YRE International Competitions.
The NYRE programme is based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which emphasise a holistic approach that can be practised by local communities to achieve sustainable development by presenting initiatives in addressing environmental issues in their community. Participants are encouraged to examine the relationship between the creation of their work and one or more themes of the SDGs before determining the topics to be reported on. There are three (3) main themes for the creation of creative journalism works namely;
LOSS OF BIODIVERSITY
