Story collection

COJO Against COVID mentorship programme is training a select group of reporters on solutions-focused journalism as a way to inform, inspire and empower local/regional communities in the aftermath of the pandemic. Moving from a mere focus on post-pandemic problems, this approach seeks to rigorously report on how and how well local/regional communities have responded to these problems. It provides evidence and insights into the strengths, impacts and limitations of responses. Our mentees, working in nearly 50 local/regional news outlets across the UK, adapt these techniques in their Covid-19 recovery coverage, with the help of highly experienced solutions-journalism mentors. This story collection contains the articles produced by our mentees over the duration of the mentorship programme.
