YRE Methodology
YRE uses a tried and tested four-step methodology

In 2018, the 1st Johnston Scout Group wrote about the effects of plastic marine litter on the gannets of Grassholm and won the 11-14 Article in both the national and international competition which was a fantastic result for them and us.

They sum up their experience of YRE.

It was great working together learning about the problems facing the gannets so close to home, interviewing people and writing the article. We really enjoyed it and learnt so much - from the skills needed to be a good journalist through to the distance marine litter travels and how big the problem is across the world. So many local people had no idea about the gannet’s struggle until they saw our exhibition in the library, so we know we’re already making a difference by raising awareness.
