This is your opportunity to learn more the ins and outs of Solutions Journalism – rigorous and compelling reporting on responses to social problems. At the three-hour workshop you will learn all you need to know about this approach, which has been transforming newsrooms across the United States and is now expanding to Europe and other parts of the globe. Come hear what it is, why it’s important, and why practitioners feel it gets them back to why they wanted to become journalists in the first place. Top experts from the New-York-based organization Solutions Journalism Network will explain how to write or broadcast your own Solutions Journalism stories, from idea to reporting to completed piece.
