Climate Beacon Newsrooms

The Solutions Journalism Network is leading a systems-level change in journalism so that all people – no matter how or where they get their news – have access to rigorous reporting not only about problems, but about promising and evidence-based responses to them as well. This is especially critical for the coverage of our changing climate, where apocalyptic, unsolvable, doom and gloom stories far outweigh those that examine meaningful efforts to advance environmental repair, resilience and adaptation. The news plays a pivotal role in making this information widely available. 

To advance this work, SJN is partnering with Covering Climate Now and Climate Central in launching the Climate Beacon Newsrooms Initiative (CBNI). And we are thrilled to announce that nine newsrooms have been selected to join the inaugural initiative in 2023:  

From now until September 2023, these newsrooms will be working individually and collectively to transform their coverage of the climate crisis to regularly include rigorous, community-informed, equity-focused solutions journalism. Beginning in January, this page will serve as a resource for the nine newsrooms, as well as a place where all newsrooms and journalists interested in integrating solutions journalism into their climate reporting can follow the work of these newsrooms and learn from their experience.  And as these newsrooms publish solutions journalism, we'll share those stories here, as well.

In the meantime, check out recent climate solutions stories from the Solutions Story Tracker below.
