Cultivating Problem-Solving Students with SolutionsU Online Resources

We’re surrounded by news about what’s broken in the world. Reporting seldom addresses what’s working, and why. But behind social and environmental challenges are people and organizations working on innovative solutions. These social change stories are not only underreported, but also difficult to find—until now. 

In this workshop, you’ll learn about the growing field of solutions journalism and how solutions-oriented stories can inform and inspire your students (and you!). Using the SolutionsU educational platform, you’ll learn how to create a “story collection” on a critical issue. We will focus primarily on the issues defined in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. You’ll leave knowing how to create modules on the various SDGs and engage students in thinking about social change.
