Environmental Journalism | Become a Green Action News Correspondent


Mission
Green Action News is a resource for people who desire to create positive change for the environment. We are committed to delivering accurate and reliable coverage of environmental issues and the efforts of activists around the world while building community among eco-minded people and inspiring sustainable living.

Our approach is to bring together the stories of a variety of people who are working on positive change for the environment. We publish:

  • news and information related to environmental concerns with a focus on 8 topic areas
  • news from the frontlines of direct action, advocacy, politics, and policy reform activism
  • feature stories highlighting the effort, interest, dedication and inspiration of individual activists
  • ideas for incorporating eco-consciousness into our day to day lives
  • Our articles range from breaking news to in-depth analysis
    and they are well-researched, fact-driven, and written from the heart.

    How to Format Your Content
    All articles must be at least 300 words long.
    Sources must be identified. Facts must be cited. Opinions & quotes must be attributed.

    GreenActionNews articles – AP Style. Strivin2BeGreen articles – magazine/blog style.
    Photos/Video should be original or sourced with permission to use or under fair use guidelines.
