YRE 2021 registrations

We’re excited about the opportunity to work with you on the Young Reporters for the Environment Litter Less Programme (YRE) in 2021.

Students will be supported to:

  • Investigate a local litter issue around the theme of ‘Reducing Plastic Waste’.
  • Report on the issue using one of three categories: writing, photography and film.
  • Enter the article, photo or film to the YRE New Zealand Competition. Entries close 5 August 2021.
  • Organise a practical event or community action day to raise awareness of your topic within your organisation.
  • Plan a media environmental campaign to raise awareness to the wider community. We’ll provide you with a media kit for implementing your campaign.
  • Share their work to a local audience within school, media, local community and YRE network via at least three media outlets.
