Finding Solutions in a Divisive World – What We are Learning from the News Gathering Trenches of Solutions Journalism
Please note – the free required registration is being handled by the Christian Science Monitor and is available via Eventbrite at bit.ly/monitorjournalism. Do not register here. There are plenty of tough issues confronting you each morning in the news. It is easy to feel information fatigue. But a growing number of journalists are piercing through those dark headlines, discovering people and organizations creating solutions to some of the deepest crises in areas such as poverty, inequality, education, and crime.
Join us on March 27th at 7pm at Northeastern University for an evening with reporters and editors who have been covering responses to deeply entrenched social challenges, from Baltimore’s historically high murder rate to the opioid epidemic in rural Pennsylvania.
Plus an educator who spends much of her time training newsroom staffs in the field will share best practices drawn from large and small newsrooms all around the US.
These practitioners of solutions journalism are finding small corners of hope and diligence where people are driving meaningful and constructive change.
