Solutions journalism helps us get smarter together and build a better world. Discover stories about COVID-19 and antiracism, including how communities are responding to racial inequity in the U.S. criminal justice system.

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.

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

Solutions journalism, in the words of our network.
