What is ‘solutions journalism’ anyway?
What if journalism could go beyond pointing out problems and instead search for and connect people working on making things better? There’s a term for this: solutions journalism. It’s not widely practiced, but The Tyee has been on the forefront of solutions journalism in Canada for over a decade.
“The idea is that reporting on responses to problems can provide larger impact, more insight, increased engagement, and examine issues in closer detail by looking at the other side of stories we rarely see. How are we doing better? It’s a shift in focus and mindset for publications and their employees; a new lens for professionals to look through. It’s not about hero worship or telling heartwarming stories about your neighbourhood bake sale. It’s about compiling anecdotes, facts, interviews, and research to tell stories about positive impact.”

“The very essence of the problem is that Canada is in fact a colonized country. It is something we continually fail to acknowledge. We have never adopted a national energy or industrial strategy.

We have let the colonizers define the nation in their image, leaving us in the position where we are ill-equipped to deal with such a momentous issue as climate change.”
