We are excited to announce this year’s roster of students from across the country who will create a range of articles, audio projects, and videos exploring many of the most important environmental issues facing the planet today. We look forward to sharing stories from this team about water systems, renewable energy, wildlife conservation, urban sustainability, and much more!

Each year, Planet Forward Correspondents go through an extremely competitive application process and this year we certainly had many more amazing candidates than we could accommodate. This year's team comes from 12 different universities, with diverse backgrounds and experience. The cohort you’ll meet here are some of the brightest and most inspiring young environmental communicators and we can’t wait for you to see, hear, and read their work.
