DW Akademie strongly believes that media has the potential to do much more than report on the negative – even in times of a pandemic. Another role of media can be to conduct constructive journalism.
This means to point out solutions, portray inspiring changemakers, and report on ways to come out of the crisis. It is a future-oriented, nuanced form of journalism that offers a new mindset and broadens the horizon of its audience. This is a role to which not many media outlets are living up to, although a lot of users and viewers are looking precisely for this kind of orientation.
This is why DW Akademie has started the Constructive Journalism Lab: Moving Media Forward. It is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) as part of the initiative “Transparency and Media Freedom – Crisis Resilience in the Global Pandemic”.
