All about YCR: Global Youth Journalism on Climate Change

So you’ve come here because …

I want to help!

Great! Welcome aboard. This is a unique global youth journalism project. We are glad that you are interested in helping our work.

The first thing you need to decide is whether you want to make one or two video interviews or you have the passion to be involved for a year or more with our ongoing project.

We need people like these active and passionate team members (click through to see our Country Directors), to help us gather teams of reporters so we have a steady flow of films throughout the year.

Our Country Directors work closely with a hand-picked committee in their country to promote YCR through social media like this Facebook page (YCR Rwanda) or this Twitter account (YCR Sudan), to find scientists and researchers to interview and to support the reporters and the project.

If you need more inspiration, check this post and read an interview with a reporter who talks about his experience or this interview with a teacher who organized two fourteen-year-old reporters at his school to participate. Soon we will post some interviews with Country Directors (check back soon).

Find a friend who does! It’s always more fun if you do it with a friend, right ?

But we also have these lists of handy:

But wait! Back up! What is this all about ?
