What We Do

At the Constructive Institute in Aarhus, we aim to save the media and democracy with journalism for tomorrow. Constructive journalism and dialogue lies at the heart of everything we do. Through our projects, international collaborations, workshops and fellowship programs, we have seen how constructive journalism can be at the forefront of elevating journalism standards and fostering change in media narratives.
