Today’s media landscape is rapidly evolving, enduring constant battles of misinformation, disinformation, sensationalism and negativity bias. This urgent panel discussion asks: can more solutions-focused and connected journalism nurture healthier democracies? Leading journalists and thinkers – including Walkey Award-winning writer and presenter Stan Grant, and the founder and CEO of Denmark’s Constructive Institute, Ulrik Haagerup – will weigh in on solutions to the media crisis. They’ll share insights on how transforming the media landscape through constructive journalism can reshape public discourse to prevent half-truths and polarised narratives, and provide a fuller understanding of our world. Presented in partnership with Faculty of Arts, Monash University
