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.
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
and they are well-researched, fact-driven, and written from the heart.
All articles must be at least 300 words long.
Sources must be identified. Facts must be cited. Opinions & quotes must be attributed.
Topical Concerns & Frontlines articles – AP Style. Feature Articles: Storytelling Style.
Photos/Video should be original or sourced with permission to use or under fair use guidelines.
All writing must be original and not published elsewhere.
Affiliate linking is NOT permitted.
Excessive Self-promotion is discouraged especially in News articles. Contributors get a bio that appears with all their posts. Personal involvement in activism causes is permitted, with a disclosure statement at the end of the article or in your bio.
Additional format instructions will be provided in our Contributing Writer’s Guide.
