[Archived Webinar, Sept. 2014] Introduction to Solutions Journalism

Instructor: David Bornstein

Most journalism focuses on what’s going wrong in society. But audiences increasingly seek news that help them to understand what can be done to improve things. Solutions journalism is a rigorous practice that goes beyond traditional problem-focused reporting, highlighting credible possibilities without falling into advocacy or fluffy reporting. This reporting has potentially transformative implications for news organizations, communities, and policy makers. 


This webinar took place on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET.
