HOW THE NEWS MEDIA CAN EFFECT POSITIVE CHANGE


Meeting Description:

About the webinar: : In this Webinar, Mallary Jean Tenore will explain how the media can create meaningful awareness and change. She will focus on different approaches that journalists are taking to have a more positive impact on the communities they cover. One of those approaches involves Restorative Narratives -- stories that show how people and communities are learning to rebuild and become resilient after difficult times. Other approaches include Solutions Journalism and Peace Journalism. This Webinar isn't about covering "fluff" stories; it's about covering stories that reveal difficult realities but ultimately focus more on recovery and resilience than on tragedy and despair.
