GOODnews is a curated platform for positive news. Every day our team thoroughly searches and carefully selects fresh, innovative and inspiring news with positive social, economic or environmental impact from hundreds of solutions-focused, fact-checked sources. We believe that highlighting news with positive global impact about inspiring solutions, technical innovations, human rights advances and medical breakthroughs will help to balance the often gloomy mainstream headlines, keep our overall media diet healthy – and our anxiety at check.

Our vision is to shift our readers’ mindset by inviting them to charge each day with inspiring, solution-oriented news. It’s not about painting things pink or ignoring reality. It’s about opening our eyes to the incredible things already being done, solutions that are only waiting to be scaled up, policies that are inching toward saving our planet, successful conservation stories, and human rights achievements. There’s so much good stuff going on.

You can get your daily dose of optimism by installing our GOODnews app, visiting our website whenever you feel gloomy or subscribing to our weekly newsletter.

This is how our users see us:

“This app is incredible. The stories that they share reassure me that our species is more about love than hate, progress than regression. The mainstream media subscribes to the “if it bleeds, it leads” philosophy, therefore, we’re inundated with bad news, but this app only shows good stuff; stuff that calms, uplifts, and unites. “

***

“I’m grateful to have positive stories to read each day. The app is simple and intuitive. The stories come from a variety of publishers on a good mix of topics. It’s not fluff – the subjects include real concerning problems, but the focus is on potential solutions, not the cycle of alarm and despair. “

“So far so good! I have had this app for a few days and it’s perfect. The perfect balance between good interesting journalism and optimistic stories! I love to know all the good things that are happening in the world, as they are so often forgotten. It has helped with my anxiety levels a lot so far. A fantastic app. “
