The Solutions Journalism Network is leading a global shift in journalism, focused on what the news misses most often: how people are trying to solve problems and what we can learn from their successes or failures.
Rigorous and compelling reporting about responses to social problems, which includes these key elements:
Focuses on a response to a social problem — and on how that response has worked, or why it hasn’t
Shows what can be learned from a response and why it matters to a newsroom’s audience
Provides data or qualitative results that indicate effectiveness (or lack thereof)
Places responses in context; doesn’t shy away from revealing shortcomings
We gathered on December 8, 2023, to celebrate 10 years of solutions journalism, growth, learnings, impact, and people who have made this all possible. Excited for more? Check out the wealth of network stories from #SolutionsJournalismDay.
