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

LEARN MORE ABOUT WHAT SOLUTIONS JOURNALISM IS +

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
