Some say that bad news sells better, but is there also room for a more positive approach to news? The idea of constructive journalism focuses on solutions or approaches to a problem, rather than the problem itself.

This week we look at the reasons why Denmark's journalism schools are making plans to set up a Centre for Constructive Journalism, and explore how solutions journalism and the restorative narrative work – and how they could prompt audiences to be more engaged with stories.

This week's guests are:

  • Cathrine Gyldensted, journalist and co-founder of the Centre for Constructive Journalism, @CGyldensted
  • David Bornstein, co-founder of the Solutions Journalism Network and co-author of Fixes, New York Times, @dnbornstein
  • Mallary Tenore, managing director of Images and Voices of Hope, @mallarytenore
