YRE registrations

Keep New Zealand Beautiful would be delighted to work with you on the Young Reporters for the Environment – Litter Less Programme in 2023.

Students will be supported to:

  • Investigate a local litter issue around the theme of Litter, Waste and/or Environmental Pollution

  • Report on the issue using one of three categories: Writing, Photography and Film

  • Enter the article, photo or film to the YRE Litter Less competition. Entries close 27 July 2023

  • Organise a practical event or community action day to raise awareness of your topic within your school or youth group

  • Plan an environmental campaign to raise awareness to the wider community. (We will provide you with an environmental campaign kit for ideas to implement your campaign or you can also get involved in our other programmes Clean up Week, Backyard Battle and Upstream Battle as your environmental campaign)

  • Share their work to a local audience within school, media, local community and YRE network via at least 3 media outlets
