On 23-24 of June, YRE International Director Gosia Luszczek travelled to Luino, Italy to receive the very first edition of the Earth Prize on behalf of YRE International. She is extremely proud that the hard work of the National Operators, teachers, students, and the YRE International team has been recognized by WEEC (World Environmental Education Congress).
Students and teachers from all over the world (including Canada, Morocco, Slovakia, Sweden and Turkey) have done an excellent job representing YRE at WEEC events over the years. Huge thanks to them!
The Earth Prize was created by the WEEC Network as a prize for environmental education and landscape. “Earth Prize wants to be a multiplier of positive actions for the environment and the quality of life”, Luca Novelli, artistic director of the award, explains.
Adriána Henčeková, an aspiring journalist highly involved with YRE in Slovakia, was invited to report on the event as a Young Reporter. Follow her journey to Italy in this inspiring YouTube video and read more about the event and her experiences in the article published on Exposure.
