Constructive journalism provides a more balanced perspective of the world, covering not only violence, death, conflict, failure or disaster but also solution-oriented stories.
In constructive journalism, the editorial priorities for each day’s news include selecting the stories that can provide a more accurate and fairer portrayal of the world we live in.
Constructive journalism gives media consumers a comprehensive view of an issue (context, perspective, background and understanding, nuances etc.), inspiring them and facilitating public debate around a better tomorrow.
