To understand tough issues like climate change, reconciliation and sexual assault, we need more than breaking news, clickbait and opinions. If we want to figure out what to do about the challenges we face, we need evidence-based journalism that sparks conversations between people who don’t usually find themselves in the same Facebook echo chambers.
That’s going to take all of us. Not just journalists. Not just experts. Not just the typical people who influence the news. We need a diverse community to build a new kind of journalism.
