Constructive Journalism gives media consumers a comprehensive view of an issue (context, perspective, background and understanding, nuances etc.), inspiring them and facilitating public debate around a better tomorrow. It provides a more balanced perspective of the world, covering not only violence, death, conflict, failure or disaster but also solution-oriented stories.


Editorial priorities for each day’s news include selecting the stories that can provide a more accurate and fairer portrayal of the world we live in.


Constructive Journalism is happening now and key news providers like Orbmedia or Vox are doing it extensively. Discover how you can join the transformation of the information landscape.
