Environmental Media Northwest
Youth Ecology Program
Environmental Media Northwest is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization based in Bellingham, Washington. Since our inception in 1992, we have produced educational Public Service Announcements (PSAs) for radio, television and movie theatres. These PSAs have focused on a variety of environmental subjects, including endangered species, recycling, and more recently, renewable energy.
Environmental Media Northwest is also the founder of the Youth Ecology Program - an innovative workshop that gives kids the opportunity to write, direct and star in their own television PSAs about pollution-free, renewable energy.
Motivated by environmental concern and inspired by the desire to raise public awareness, our mission is to provide hands-on learning experiences for youth that have multi-layered educational value, and that deliver environmentally relevant content messages. Through the creation of television PSAs, young people learn valuable creative, technical and critical thinking skills as they produce a media product that is focused on educating others.
