A Time for New Approaches: Introducing Solutions Journalism to Central Europe

A Time for New Approaches: Introducing Solutions Journalism to Central Europe Donor: Porticus Foundation

Partner: Ashoka


Overall Objective: Together with Ashoka, TOL aims to introduce the concept of “Solutions Journalism” – rigorous reporting on responses to society’s problems – to Central Europe to strengthen independent media, rebuild public trust in the media, and encourage higher rates of civic engagement.


We have divided our activities into three phases: the first phase will be focused on raising awareness about the concept of Solutions Journalism; the second on training journalists, media outlets, students, and journalism faculties to implement this concept; and the third on producing Solutions Journalism pieces, which includes stipends for journalists.

Moldovan diaries

The Moldovan Diaries is a multimedia, interactive examination of the country's ethnic, religious, social and political identities by Paolo Paterlini and Cesare De Giglio.

This innovative approach to story telling gives voice to ordinary people and takes the reader on the virtual trip across Moldovan rural and urban landscapes. 

It is a unique and intimate map of the nation.
