Solutions Journalism

934 views

Published on

These are the slides used to present my thesis project for NYU Journalism's Studio20, a Master's program in digital media and web innovation.

My project was to develop a toolkit to help journalists report on social change more effectively--what my partner, Dowser Media, a news site founded by David Bornstein in 2009, has been calling Solutions Journalism.

You can find the project, and more information, at http://dowser.org/solution-journalism/toolkit.

Rumor has it there's also a video of my presentation circulating around. If you have a copy, I'd love to see it! Find me at @amandablair.
