Hidden in Plain Sight: How Solutions Journalism can help unearth buried social sector knowledge

Great idea to disseminate what works.

As SJN co-founder David Bornstein put it in his New York Times column Why Solutions Journalism’ Matters, Too, If we think of the media’ as a feedback mechanism for society then — like any feedback mechanism — it can encourage or inhibit all sorts of things. Depending on what gets highlighted and what gets overlooked — and  how stories are framed — the media can accelerate social progress or do just the opposite.” SJN seeks to legitimize and spread the practice of solutions journalism: critical, clear-eyed reporting about responses to social problems. When done well, this kind of journalism provides valuable insights about how society can better tackle problems.
