Event description

Description

Take a look at the news on any given day and it will paint a bleak picture of the world. Solutions journalism hopes to change that by reporting on the responses to social issues as well as the problems themselves.

Join us for the first edition of our new One World Media Masterclass Series where we take a deep dive into some of the industry's most hotly discussed topics with the experts who are leading the field. First up: Solutions Journalism.

Filmmakers and journalists have long played a crucial role in uncovering serious global problems like the climate crisis, conflict and poverty, and there is now a growing demand for the media to play a part in reporting the solutions too. However, there are many misconceptions about journalism with a positive spin.

At this Masterclass you will hear directly from experts using a solutions-focused approach and get tips on using your rigorous reporting skills to include these elements in your stories. Learn how to move beyond the negative headlines by asking questions about what happens next and how people are responding to problems.


Speakers:

Jodie Jackson is the author of You Are What You Read, which looks at the psychological impact of reading the news. She is working with newsrooms and journalists to find ways to encourage positive stories in their narratives.

Estelle Doyle is a senior journalist for BBC News and Current Affairs, working on their solutions-focused series Crossing Divides.

Mark Rice-Oxley, Editor of The Upside, The Guardian
