Have you heard? Solutions stories outperform problem-focused news; are more interesting, trustworthy, and uplifting; and inspire people to get involved.

Learn more here and join us in celebrating our community of journalists and newsrooms that have made an impact with solutions journalism.

We train and connect journalists to cover what’s missing in today’s news: how people are responding to problems.

We’re working to bring solutions journalism to every newsroom worldwide.

Solutions journalism, in the words of our network.

Solutions Journalism...

  • Can be character-driven, but focuses in-depth on a response to a problem and how the response works in meaningful detail
  • Focuses on effectiveness, not good intentions, presenting available evidence of results
  • Discusses the limitations of the approach
  • Seeks to provide insight that others can use
