Keep Scotland Beautiful is reminding the public that its Young Reporters Scotland programme is still open for entries. The response following the launch in May has seen young people from 22 local authorities across Scotland register to take part in the competition, but there is time for more submissions which investigate an environmental problem or sustainability issue.
The programme is linked to the international Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) programme which is in operation in over 25 countries. It is coordinated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and is managed in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful.
Young Reporters Scotland is an exciting opportunity to raise awareness of the sustainability issues young people care about, to tell people about exciting projects happening within their communities and to showcase their creative talents. The programme builds life-changing skills in young people and allows them to be part of an international community taking action and becoming advocates for a sustainable world.
It is open to all young people aged 11 to 21, with participation registered through the Keep Scotland Beautiful website. Entries can be in a range of different media, including articles, blogs, videos, animations and photographs. Young people can register to take part either as individuals, through a community group or school.
Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful, said: “Keep Scotland Beautiful is delighted with the response so far to this year’s Young Reporters Scotland programme call for entries. The investigations of these young people inspire us and help us work with young learners to encourage them to build a deep, rich and connected understanding of climate change and climate justice in a global and local context.
“We want more young people to share their environmental and sustainability knowledge, giving them key skills for living and learning, by submitting an investigation to the competition, so that everyone can learn and raise awareness of these issues in their communities.”
Young Reporters Scotland entries can be submitted on the Keep Scotland website here.
