Tools and platforms that connect news audiences to constructive actions they can take based on a story. These projects sometimes struggle to gain traction in newsrooms due to their editorial concerns about objectivity, or what some observers have noted as a bias toward reporting on problems rather than solutions. Suggested reading:

  • "The digital age, and particularly the rise of social media, was initially associated with a utopian vision of global media access and participation.
