The young reporters tell us more about their investigation!
In journalistic research, the interview is a central method for gathering information. This year, the young reporters for the environment are once again interviewing experts and people involved in sustainable development to gather their expertise. This week we met the young reporters Leila, Camille and Mylène, who are studying at the ESTER in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
What sustainability issues are you investigating?
We investigate wind turbines as a renewable energy source, but also the various nuisances they can cause.
Why did you choose this topic?
There is much criticism of wind turbines, especially in relation to noise and impact on the landscape. Through our investigation, we seek to question the potential of wind turbines in terms of sustainable development.
Who did you interview?
We met Pierre Berger, who is responsible for monitoring the Mont-Soleil installations. This interview gave us a better understanding of wind energy, its advantages and disadvantages, and how a power plant like this works. Wind turbines can be part of the solution.
