Solutions journalism, also known as constructive journalism, is the method of investigating solutions to problems, rather than solely reporting on the issues themselves.
It is thought to not only engage audiences, but also to change the way news consumers think and feel about the world, by empowering them to understand how problems can be tackled more effectively.

- Samantha McCann, network curator, Solutions Journalism Network
