25 June 2016 – 4th edition of the #ImpactJournalism Day

Monday 20 June 2016, by SIGNIS

Paris, June, 20th, 2016 (M. Van Reeth). For those who want to read more good and positives news in their journal and in the media in general, Sparknews offers a collaborative platform to share and connect innovative projects that are working to create a more sustainable and inclusive world.

This international project called “Impact Journalism Day” has a two-fold impact: increasing awareness of tried-and-tested positive solutions for society, as well as creating connections that help to strengthen the impact of these innovations.

On that day, 100 positive innovations from more than 110 countries are shared by a community of 55 editors-in-chief. The innovations are very diverse: making plastic from seaweeds, a social beauty salon, “green” restaurants and schools, alphabetization, transforming slums, protecting women…

It is really important to highlight those inititiave: they are rarely reported in the news and need to be brought into light. It will help them become more famous, so that everyone can benefit from them.

This year, they will all be in the media on the 25th of June. Under the motto, “Change inspires News that inspires Change”, Sparknews is aiming for even more impact this 4th season; especially in the digital sphere via an even stronger presence online. (Use the #ImpactJournalism)
