Too often, we fail to see news of effective innovation in an ever-changing global landscape. Many are left immersed in problems, or else struggling to match lofty ideals to the reality of what works.
Welcome to the Solutions Story Tracker (beta), the premier database of solutions journalism—rigorous, clear-eyed reporting on responses to the world's most pressing problems. Here, you can find case studies to enhance your knowledge and skills as changemakers in your field.
Join us in brainstorming how we can most effectively circulate responses to today's challenges—We welcome your feedback.
Please note that Solutions Journalism Network has no control over the policies of the publications in which the linked stories appear. Those policies may result in your being denied access to certain articles identified in the database.
The current version of the Solutions Story Tracker does not include the new taxonomy or additional functionality that we are currently developing based on feedback from educators and students.
This summer, we will be launching a beta test of the SolutionsU platform, which will include the next version of the Solutions Story Tracker with this updated taxonomy, redesigned search experience, and additional functionalities.
