Positive News #114

Positive News is the quarterly magazine dedicated to solutions-based journalism - tackling the big issues of the world but reporting on what's being done about it, rather than the regular news that leaves you feeling like we're doomed.

Inside you'll find stories about positive social and environmental changes around the world and the people making them happen.
