Our Manifesto

As the world faces unprecedented social, economic and ecological challenges, we are convinced that we urgently need to slow down, to rethink our relationship with nature and growth and to reassess the way our society is organised by imagining new types of education and technologies that are at the service of all humanity.

Our mission is to promote new narratives of the world. By changing perceptions of what is possible, we create a new narrative that will ultimately lead to action. What does that mean? We show that ways of eating, dressing, working, moving, learning and communicating that are not harmful to the planet and people’s health already exist and are practiced across the globe.

We do not pretend to “create” the solutions – instead, we are committed to helping those who develop them grow and attain concrete and proven results. We do this by trusting in human creativity and ingenuity, promoting authenticity, courage and solidarity.

We are neither a consulting firm, nor a positive press agency, nor a media dedicated to sustainable development. We are weavers of links between actors of change; we are planters of seeds to trigger action; we are creators of sparks to generate attention.

We reach out to those who question the status quo to inspire them, equip them according to their needs and connect them with potential partners. Whether they are journalists, employees, managers, organizational leaders, creators, or citizens, we accompany them as they create new narratives about the world.

Christian de Boisredon intervient comme speaker dans un de nos programmes phares pour les Dirigeants du Groupe Transformational Leadership. L'objectif de ce programme est d'accompagner les Dirigeants dans les Transformations qu'ils doivent initier/accompagner . Dans ce contexte l'intervention de Christian les inspire,les stimule et les motive en leur montrant que inspiration, créativité, passion, engagement et détermination peuvent accomplir de vrais transformations même avec des moyens parfois limités. Cela les aide également à changer leur regard sur le monde et son champ des possibles! Certains des participants l’ont sollicité par ailleurs pour leurs propres séminaires après l’avoir entendu à celui-ci. Je recommande donc très fortement Christian qui a un impact positif et très ressourçant.

,,

To fight pollution and climate change it is necessary to join forces. This concerns journalists, too. So we’re acting in a way, we can do best: explore and share information. Progress is a consequence of knowledge.

,,

Ce type d’initiative réunissant un panel international de quality papers économiques sur une thématique forte telle que le climat, ne peut qu’asseoir la crédibilité de nos marques. Elle ouvre par ailleurs le champ à une approche rédactionnelle multi-culturelle de l’actualité.

,,

Le quotidien économique Les Echos a décidé de participer à ce projet éditorial avec enthousiasme avant la Conférence de Paris sur le climat. Il s’agit de montrer que les solutions ne viendront pas seulement des engagements que les Etats prendront au mois de décembre, mais aussi des projets que les acteurs économiques porteront. Contrairement à ce que l’on pense souvent, les idées concrètes fourmillent pour limiter le réchauffement climatique et imaginer une croissance plus respectueuse de l’environnement.

Partnering Solutions & Co gives Business Day Ghana the opportunity to connect with great leaders of large corporations and renowned media outlets.

,,

Magnifique expérience de partage de solutions qui font du bien. Le concept a pris totalement sa place au sein de la Rédaction de L'Economiste. Les noms de Sparknews, IJD et Solutions & Co circulent tellement bien chez nous que nous avons intégré ces opérations dans nos stratégies et présentation du Groupe. Merci à toute l'équipe pour cette belle aventure et nous changerons le monde ensemble!

,,

Working with Sparknews was a great experience. The stories from all over the world broadenend the horizons of our readers. They really appreciated all the input and ideas - and are looking forward to next years stories.

,,

An insightful experience that showed that communities around the world can be united by their problems and solutions to create a better world for us all.

,,

Fue una gran experiencia haber sido parte del IJD: en lo personal, tuve la suerte de hacerlo en 2016 a través de un artículo, luego en Ottawa con el seminario y ahora a través de la edición del suplemento impreso y el digital. Y especialmente se ve la trascendencia de este proyecto cuando nos envían la lista que refleja en qué cantidad de países ha sido publicada una nota que se hizo desde acá. Cómo un proyecto que se desarrolla en un determinado país --tal vez un proyecto pequeño incluso-- se puede volver una noticia positiva internacional y que puede despertar proyectos similares en otros lugares del mundo.

,,

We are very glad to be part of the IJD project, because it highlights and promotes one of the aspects that most of the media randomly misses – truly positive stories that can serve as an inspiration for improvement of quality of live and society as such.

,,

Impact Journalism Day is a significant initiative that could really help change the way we look at problems faced by millions of people. Through the partnership of different media organizations across the world, we amplify the stories of solutions that otherwise would be limited within their respective communities. IJD creates opportunities for existing solutions to be replicated and adopted in other places that face the same problems.
