Negative news predominates in most media. Reports about solutions and stories of success, on the other hand, are rather rare. Studies show that this imbalance leads to a distorted perception of reality and takes away the courage and hope of people to shape the future positively. The Good Impact Foundation runs several programs that counteract this imbalance: by curating existing and producing new solution-oriented content, we contribute to a more realistic and balanced world view, strengthen the belief in positive change, and enable people to initiate and carry on this change themselves.
In early 2018 we launched the Good News App. Good News is a curated news service for solution-oriented journalism. The Good News editorial staff collects the most important positive news and solution-oriented articles from the most relevant media sites daily from Monday to Friday and bundles them in a compact daily edition that is distributed via app, newsletter and website. The Good Impact Foundation is the publisher of Good News and thus counteracts the problem that solution-oriented media content is thinly sown and difficult to access.
