World Youth News Reporters Investigate Local Food Movement

iEARN, PBS Newshour Extra and UNICEF partnered to support students to report on the Millennium Development Goals. Students from Turkey, Pakistan, India and U.S. successfully completed the World Youth News reporter certification course and reported on the state of the MDGs in their communities. Mentors from PBS NewsHour Extra and Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism Graduate acted as their advisors.

Please see below for the first report from our MDG Reporting Labs where students from Community School Central in Redwood City, California reported on 'food miles' - the distance food travels from farm to plate.
