Solutions Journalism workshop

Transitions organised a two-day workshop on Solution Journalism on 16th and 17th May as a part of the “Just EU and ME” project funded by the European Commission. The workshop was attended by over 100 participants including  students, youth activists and media professionals. The trainers from Transitions – Jeremy Druker, Executive Director and Meenal Thakur, Programme Manager and guest speakers Jocelyn Timperely, freelance climate journalist and Jakub Górnicki, co-founder at Poland based Outriders media, guided the participants through the principles and practices of solutions journalism, a new approach to reporting that emphasizes the potential of solutions to social issues, rather than just the problems. Over the course of two days, the participants learnt how to apply the four pillars of solutions journalism to their reporting, discovered how climate-focused solutions reporting can pave the way for climate action, and explored how to re-engage audiences through solutions journalism using innovative multimedia formats to publish stories. The interactive exercises, group discussions, and inspiring case studies helped the participants gain new skills and insights to bring solutions journalism to their work. The workshop received positive feedback and the encouraging comments about the quality of the sessions are a great boost to our efforts, at Transitions, to help journalists and newsrooms approach a solutions-oriented approach to their reporting and create impact.

The workshop was organised within the JUST EU and ME project, funded by the European Union’s Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values (CERV) Programme (2021-2027).
