Creating Powerful Solutions Journalism in Times of Crisis

Learn how to connect with and engage news audiences through powerful solutions journalism.

At a time when the news cycle is bleak, providing news coverage that focuses on solutions, not just problems, can help news consumers see the positive. This session will help journalists and news leaders understand the benefits of solutions journalism—for news audiences and for news organizations.

This session will show newsrooms how to create solutions journalism that empowers news consumers and creates better connections between newsrooms and the community. The Center for Media Engagement is conducting research connected to solutions around the COVID-19 pandemic and would share the results in conjunction with the findings of our previous solutions journalism research.
