Good journalism about good things

Positive News is the inspiring current affairs magazine.

Online and in print, we publish quality, independent journalism about progress and possibility.

When much of the media is full of doom and gloom, instead Positive News is the world’s first media organisation dedicated to reporting on what’s going right. We are pioneers of ‘constructive journalism’ – an emerging approach in the media towards rigorous and relevant reporting that is focused on solutions. As a magazine and a movement, we are changing the news for good.

In print, Positive News magazine offers inspiring stories from across the globe, as well as high-impact photography and illustration, and exquisite design and production. It is published quarterly and available via subscription, as well as at selected retailers.

Positive News is a media co-operative owned by readers and journalists worldwide, and our profits are reinvested in our journalism.

Through our #OwnTheMedia crowdfunding campaign, in 2015 Positive News became a community benefit society (a form of co-op) invested in by more than 1,500 people in 33 countries, age 18-89, who each have equal influence. Instead of serving a media mogul, we serve the many.

Positive News was the first media organisation in the world to offer ‘community shares’ globally through crowdfunding.
