In an afternoon session at the next newsrewired digital journalism event on 11 July in London, delegates will learn about the difference between constructive reporting (also known as solutions journalism) and traditional newsgathering and storytelling styles, and the impact incorporating these approaches can have on audience engagement and the relationship between media and their readers, listeners and viewers.

Today, Journalism.co.uk is pleased to announce two more speakers will be joining us on stage at Reuters in London to share their experiences with constructive journalism.

A limited number of tickets for the next newsrewired event are currently available at the discounted price of £130+VAT until 20 April.

With about three months to go until our next newsrewired digital journalism conference, we are all hands on deck here at Journalism.co.uk, working on the programme for the event and the associated workshops.

Newsrewired will take place on 11 July at Reuters in Canary Wharf, London, and we are pleased to announce we are adding a new spotlight talk to the agenda.

Making an impact in media no longer means talking about print versus digital or desktop versus mobile. Understanding how people behave is the new way of thinking about media in the digital world. In this talk, Albertine Piels, director of Hackastory, explains why your audience’s needs and your goals have to align for your organisation to thrive in this digital era.

In 2016, Albertine quit her job as an editor-in-chief at the Dutch national news station RTLZ so she can fully focus on Hackastory. Albertine has 15 years of experience in journalism, always with a strong focus on online media. 

A limited number of early-bird discounted tickets are available for the event, costing £130+VAT. The discount expires on 20 April or once the tickets sell out, after which tickets will cost £180+VAT. Half of the tickets have already gone, so book your place now to avoid missing out.

The next newsrewired digital journalism conference takes place on 11 July 2018 at Reuters in London.

Over the past couple of weeks, the Journalism.co.uk team has been working on the programme for the event, and we’re pleased to be able to announce our first confirmed speaker as well as some session ideas we are currently developing.

A limited number of early-bird discounted tickets are available for the event, costing £130+VAT. The discount expires on 20 April or once the tickets sell out, after which tickets will cost £180+VAT. Nearly half of the tickets have already gone, so book your place now to avoid missing out.

One of the key sessions of the day will be a discussion around constructive journalism, the newsgathering and storytelling practice that looks at solutions to problems, presenting stories of resourcefulness, action or community spirit alongside in-depth analysis of the issues at hand.

Research has shown that the traditional news diet can leave people feeling anxious as negative stories flood TVs or social media feeds, and that people who interact with constructive journalism are more likely to feel empowered, spend more time on the article page, or share the stories on social media.
