The 2021 Planet Award is for news media reporting and/or initiatives that effectively provide young audiences (people ages 13 to 24) with information and hope for saving the planet.
The Global Youth & News Media aims to strengthen the linkages between young people and news media through three kinds of actions: honor news media that truly serve the young, promote media literacy through a journalistic prism and amplify the journalism of young people.
They work to strengthen engagement between news media and young people under age 24 while reinforcing the crucial role of journalism in society.
They seek to help youth become empowered to use news media and journalism as tools to help safeguard and advance their society, democracies and planet.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 1-Jun-21.
