Finally: Some Positive News

Regardless of your political bent, there’s been plenty of bad news lately. In an effort to find some balance, we went looking and found Positive News.

Here’s how they describe themselves:

Good journalism about good things
Positive News is the constructive journalism magazine.
Online and in print we offer quality, independent reporting on progress and possibility.
As a magazine and a movement, we are changing the news for good.
Est. 1993

 

Their mission sounds pretty cool, and the content is worth it: Photography book aims to challenge conventional ideas of female beauty, or 10 startups that aim to democratise the ‘digital economy revolution.’ are just a couple examples.

Here’s a clip from “Why we need to start listening to insects”:

We remain deeply dependent on pollinators like bees, moths and butterflies, but a 2016 report showed that 40 per cent of invertebrate pollinator species are under threat of extinction. It’s because of this love–hate relationship with insects that we urgently need better ways of tracking different species – better ways to differentiate between the bugs that help us and the bugs that hurt us.
