Transforming news is critical to building a more equitable and sustainable world.

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.

What is Solutions Journalism?

Rigorous and compelling reporting about responses to social problems, which includes these key elements:

  • RESPONSE

    Focuses on a response to a social problem — and on how that response has worked, or why it hasn’t

  • INSIGHT

    Shows what can be learned from a response and why it matters to a newsroom’s audience

  • EVIDENCE

    Provides data or qualitative results that indicate effectiveness (or lack thereof)

  • LIMITATIONS

    Places responses in context; doesn’t shy away from revealing shortcomings
