Impact Journalism Day


What is Impact Journalism Day ?

Every year more than 50 leading media from across the world simultaneously publish articles on 60 inspiring social and environmental projects with a strong positive impact. Through these publications, more than 120 million readers are able to discover existing innovative solutions worldwide that respond to contemporary issues.

Apart from mixing up the constant stream of  relentless and negative news, Impact Journalism Day offers stories that are precise and focused on solutions to social problems. In seeking to raise awareness on global issues whilst providing tried and tested solutions and actions, Impact Journalism Day acts as a springboard for change in both newsrooms and readers’ opinions.

By combining the power of major media with a network of committed international figures, Sparknews aims to build a movement of global optimism, encouraging people to act on both a local and international level.
