Collaboration Case Studies

Solutions Journalism

Launched in 2019, the CJC was one of early collaborative projects launched by Solutions Journalism Network with funding from the Knight Foundation. 

“Solutions journalism investigates and explains, in a critical and clear-eyed way, how people try to solve widely shared problems. While journalists usually define news as “what’s gone wrong,” solutions journalism tries to expand that definition: Responses to problems are also newsworthy. By adding rigorous coverage of solutions, journalists can tell the whole story.”

Finding solutions. Informing communities. Together.
