So you think “solutions journalism” means you have to write nice things now? Wrong. It is a much more complex approach to telling stories and at the same time serving society – so exactly what journalism is and should be.
This is a recording of a meeting with David Boardman held on March 9th 2018 in Warsaw in Wrzenie Świata cafe.
Investigative reporting – controls the ruling ones.
Interactive journalism – brings powerful form to stories.
Solutions journalism – looks at change and seeks how society can empower itself.
