Team Intitutionnel

Founded in 2012 by Christian de Boisredon, Sparknews is a social enterprise that identifies, shares, and amplifies positive solutions to the important problems of our time. Through its activities Sparknews aims to achieve two objectives: firstly, to give positive initiatives the opportunity to scale up by increasing their visibility and connections and secondly, to inspire the maximum number of readers to take action and support an inclusive and sustainable world.

What is Impact Journalism Day?



initiative dedicated to solutions for climate.

The Impact Journalism Day is an international editorial operation that partners with the world’s most important daily newspapers to publish, on the same day in print and digital formats, supplements that feature over 60 inspiring and feasible solutions to concrete problems.

Journalism that Encourages Action

Beyond the normal daily flow of current stories that are often negative and instantaneous, the stories featured in Impact Journalism Day are precise and clearly framed reports on solutions to problems that threaten society. In an attempt to bring attention to these issues and all the while propose concrete solutions, the IJD editorial operation is a catalyst for change for editors, journalists, and readers.

Collaborative Journalism: Write Three Articles, Receive 60

It takes no less than four months to move from sourcing projects to the publication of the supplements. Our objective: to help editors and journalists identify replicable innovations, that have proven themselves in the field, and that are having a significant social or environmental impact. The mission is collaborative: each newspaper writes on two initiatives from their country and then all the articles are shared amongst the alliance so every newspapers has access to all 60 stories.
