1. na svete z kategórie najmladších (autorka - 11-ročná Miroslava Mrišová z Novej Dubnice, písala aj článok "Otvorím - neotvorím" o problematike vysokých a pre deti ale aj pre starších občanov ťažko otvárateľných kontajnérov na odpad)

(tlačová správa Centra environmentálnych aktivít Trenčín, 5. júna 2018)

Slovenskí enviro-žurnalisti opäť potvrdili, že sú v programe svetovou elitou. Spomedzi 35 krajín zapojených do programu získali v medzinárodnej súťaži neuveriteľné štyri prvé miesta a dve čestné uznania. Tento úspech dosiahli vďaka kvalitným reportážam postaveným na investigatíve, ktoré priniesli aj reálne zmeny v oblasti životného prostredia na regionálnej či lokálnej úrovni.

Pri príležitosti Svetového dňa životného prostredia Nadácia pre environmentálne vzdelávanie so sídlom v Kodani oznámila výsledky súťaže Mladých reportérov pre životné prostredie (11-21 roční mladí reportéri skúmajú lokálne problémy životného prostredia, hľadajú riešenie a svoje zistenia publikujú formou článkov, fotografií a videí. Na medzinárodnú úroveň postúpili najlepšie práce z národnej úrovne http://www.mladireporteri.sk/vysledky-sutaze-mladych-reporterov-pre-zivotne-prostredie-2018.

Členka slovenskej poroty Mgr. Katarína Kretter: „Ako porotkyňu ma prekvapila investigatíva, ktorej sú mladí ľudia bez „naozajstných“ reportérskych skúseností schopní. Oceňujem najmä schopnosť zaoberať sa témami, ktoré nie sú v oblasti životného prostredia prvoplánové a všeobecne známe. Ochota naštudovať si problematiku, zájsť za odborníkmi, konfrontovať vyjadrenia so zistenými skutočnosťami a hlavne dôslednosť, ktorú som videla vo viacerých príspevkoch, sľubuje, že o budúcnosť novinárskeho remesla sa nemusíme obávať.“

Riaditeľ Centra environmentálnych aktivít Mgr. Richard Medal: "Tento úspech nás mimoriadne teší a vnímame ho aj ako ocenenie práce pedagógov a lektorov zapojených do programu. Aj ako dôkaz, že slovenské školstvo prináša aj mimoriadne úspechy v celosvetovom porovnaní. Dnešná správa nás teší o to viac, že práve dnes sa začína štvordňové sústredenie najaktívnejších mladých eko-reportérov v Smižanoch s cieľom rozvíjať novinárske zručnosti a získavať vhľad do problematiky životného prostredia (tento rok konkrétne k témam ochrany prírody v Národnom parku Slovenský raj)."

Skutočne najväčším úspechom pre nás nie sú ocenenia v súťaži, ale inšpirovanie k skutočným zmenám na regionálnej úrovni či na školách. Ako v prípade predloženia legislatívneho návrhu na posilnenie ochrany pitnej vody (článok reportérok z Majcichova http://www.mladireporteri.sk/clanok/najvaecsi-poklad-slovenska-v-ohrozeni&theme=litterless), nahradenia jednorazových fixiek viacnásobne plniteľnými (článok Elišky Bohunickej z Obchodnej akadémie v Trnave http://www.mladireporteri.sk/clanok/jednorazove-fixky-novy-trend-alebo-tichy-environmentalny-nepriatel&theme=litterless), či kampane za odstránenie žuvačiek z námestia v Novej Dubnici (video reportérov zo Súkromnej ZŠ v Novej Dubnici http://www.mladireporteri.sk/video_/lepkave-prekliatie&theme=litterless)“, Klaudia Medalová, koordinátorka programu Mladí reportéri pre životné prostredie z Centra environmentálnych aktivít.

PRESS RELEASE

 

YRE International Jury and Competition Winners 2018
 

Contact: Gosia Luszczek, International YRE Director | E: gosia@fee.global
Kristina Madsen, International YRE Coordinator | E: kristina@fee.global

Copenhagen, June 2018
 

The Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) International Jury meeting for the 2018 YRE competition successfully took place on the 31st of May at the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) head office in Copenhagen, Denmark.

This year, FEE received a total of 178 entries from 30 countries for both the International YRE Competition and the Litter Less Campaign competition. This is the largest number of entries FEE has ever received, emphasising the great global interest in the YRE programme and the Litter Less Campaign.

The Jury discussed the top national entries from the media categories of articles, photographs and videos across the age groups 11-14, 15-18, and 19-21, as well as the International Collaboration category. The Jury also reviewed entries from the Litter Less Campaign.

Taking into account the journalistic qualities of the entries, their use of YRE methodology, their creativity and relevance, and their link to the Sustainable Development Goals, the Jury was free to award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes, as well as honourable mentions, as they saw fit. The final winners are listed below and will be published on Huffington Post Kids as a prize. All entries can be found on the competition's Exposure page.

 

This year's International Jury was composed of professionals in the fields of environmental journalism and Education for Sustainable Development. The members are:

  • Christopher Slaney, Freelance Journalist
  • Garrette Clark, Sustainable Lifestyles Programme Officer, UNEP
  • Julie Saito, Programme Specialist of Communication, UNESCO
  • Torvald Jacobsson, Founding Partner of Edumanity and COO of TheGoals.org, Lund University (IIIEE)
  • Pedro Marcellino, Documentary Film Producer and Director
  • Mayra Navarrete, Photographer
  • Constant Brand, Press Officer, European Environment Agency
  • Boris Šušmak, FEE Board Member

You can find more information on their profiles here

 

 

Reflecting on the development of the YRE Programme, Jury member Pedro Marcellino, notes:

“Over the last 20 years of my involvement, first as a student, and now as a jury member, YRE has changed immensely and repeatedly, growing from a European to an international programme, adapting to remain relevant and at the forefront of pivotal changes in the media, technological and environmental education landscapes, and collaborating with thought leaders and agencies spearheading the agenda internationally. The animated discussions at this year’s international competition jury meeting were reflective of this constant reinvention, and indicative not only of an increasing quality in submissions from all around the world over the last 3 years, but also of higher expectations by the jury from year to year.”
