The Solutions Journalism Network (SJN) is an independent, non-profit organization that advocates an approach called solutions journalism. It was founded in 2013 by David Bornstein, Courtney E. Martin, and Tina Rosenberg. Its staff in New York City and Oakland, Calif., help journalists and news organizations across the country understand, value and build the capacity to do solutions-oriented reporting.
The mission of SJN is “to spread the practice of solutions journalism: rigorous and compelling reporting about responses to social problems.” What SJN calls solutions journalism is preceded by very similar journalistic styles that have been practiced outside the United States, including “constructive journalism,” which originated in Denmark.
As of November, 2017, SJN says, it had created working relationships with 180 newsrooms in the United States exposing thousands of journalists to the practice of solutions journalism.more » « less
