CEI Young Reporters

Stack of Newspapers

This year we are continuing with the concept of young conference delegates reporting on/at the 2022 CEI conference. This concept has been used in many different ways over the years. A number of delegations at previous conferences have showcased the work  of the Young Reporters for the Environment organised by FEE (Foundation for Environmental education). At other conferences they put together a daily newsletter or collected ideas to present at the closing ceremony.

We want them to report on what they encounter in an interesting way via social media before and during the conference and to collect interesting articles for the Global Forum magazine. We need delegates to volunteer that have a mature level of English, a flair for creative writing, an ability to interview, to be social media literate, and to be interested in telling the environmental stories.

The young reporters will be led by Costa Rican student Jimena. Jimena was a Young Reporter last year and is excited to lead the CEI 2022 YRE team as the conference is hosted in her home country. To provide guidance and support, Andrew Cox (Ireland) and Cindy Leibner (USA) will act as the editorial team with technical support from Jana Cox  (Ireland/Netherlands). Most important is that the voice of the young people is heard. It is their future.

Hello, my name’s Arga, I’m a 16 year old boy from Bogor, Indonesia. This is my first time attending CEI as a reporter. Since this is my first time, I’m excited for what this program can offer to me, such as creating new relationships with other people that live continents away from me and learning new skills as a reporter. However, I will be attending the program online since COVID is still roaming around.



What’s up, my name is Clarin and I’m 15 years old. I’m born and raised in Surabaya, Indonesia. I have never attended CEI before so this will be my first time joining Cei and YRE.
