Good News For The Media
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for an evening devoted to exploring the potential of good news.
When you speak to people in the media about good news, they sometimes consider it a less important form of journalism. However, our keynote speaker, the former BBC news presenter Martyn Lewis, will be discussing how solutions-driven journalism can be relevant, informative and powerful, and can show readers both sides of the coin.
The event is not an attempt to argue against or ignore any of the world’s problems, or to discredit journalism that informs us about these. But there are many fascinating good news stories out there that rarely get covered, and we will show the benefit that good news can offer to society and to the media industry itself.
The editor of Positive News, Seán Dagan Wood, will talk about the importance of good news, the demand that exists for it, and the growing presence of media that are focusing on solutions.
Jeremy Wickremer, founder of the Transformational Media Summit, will discuss how media is changing, the role of the media in society and its effect upon us.
There will also be a question and answer section during the event where we would enjoy discussing any thoughts you have.
The event is open to the general public and also includes a guest list of journalists and editors. We hope that you will join us to explore this exciting topic.
