“Constructive journalism is an emerging domain within journalism that is slowly getting grounded and involves the field of communication that is based around reporting solution-focused news, instead of revolving only around negative and conflict-based stories. The idea behind constructive journalism is to give stories more context, by giving more background and also reporting what is going good, so that people are more able to create a realistic view of the world they inhabit. Instead of only reporting the issues, with constructive journalism the journalist also addresses what the consumer can do with the information. What can I do to change it?” from wikipedia
