This Event has already passed.

Event Summary

The Solutions Journalism Network is an independent, non profit organization committed to spreading the practice of solutions journalism: rigorous reporting on responses to social problems. They seek to re-balance the news, so every day people are exposed to stories that help them understand local challenges, and potential ways to respond.

In its 2.5 hour training, local reporters and editors will discuss what solutions journalism is all about, how it differs from traditional and investigative journalism, why it’s important, how to do it well, what impact it can have and how to frame ideas brainstormed at the session. Attendees will review examples of solutions based reporting and story formats, in addition to discussing engagement techniques and collaborative strategies.

This training is hosted by The Philadelphia Inquirer's Lenfest fellows, who are leading a solutions-oriented project called Made In Philly.
