Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) is a programme of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). An international network of youth in more than 25 countries, YRE promotes solutions to today’s environmental issues through investigative journalism.
At the national[where?] level, YRE participants choose local environmental issues to investigate, with the goal of communicating relevant information and solutions to the general public. The students carry out real journalistic enquiries and report their findings in the form of an article, photograph/photographic essay or video.
An international YRE competition is also held annually.
Global Forest Fund
As an organisation promoting sustainable development, FEE established the Global Forest Fund to offset CO2 emissions from travel. This non-profit fund invests 90% of its income directly into tree planting and other CO2 compensation efforts that are combined with environmental education activities.
