How Solutions Journalism Can Revamp Your Reporting

On March 31, 2021, AIR's News Voices Network hosted a webinar on the journalism practice of Solutions Journalism with Solutions Journalism Network's Michelle Faust Raghavan (New Voices ‘11) and The View from Somewhere's Lewis Wallace (New Voices ‘15). 

Solutions journalism is rigorous, evidence-based reporting on responses to social problems. Every solutions story has details about how the response works, evidence of its effectiveness, insight that helps us understand the problem and/or the solution, and it discusses the limitations of the response. Watch the presentation and Q&A below along with the slides.
