Activity: 
Journalism and Public Media

What would a journalism designed to help communities tackle the most complex problems of our time look like? How can we use the tools of journalism to troubleshoot real problems — from gun violence to climate change — and share what’s working across the country and around the globe?

There are different visions for what solutions journalism is and what it can accomplish. Hear from leading media makers and journalists about community-driven projects in sites ranging from Los Angeles to Kosovo. This session will explore how solutions-oriented journalism can enhance a community’s capacity to solve its problems.
