This list celebrates journalism that showcases the potential of politics to address today’s biggest issues and shape a better future. While it’s important that journalists use their watchdog role to hold politicians accountable, the news is more often brimming with today’s challenges than with tomorrow’s solutions. These 50 pieces of journalism from around the world tell constructive, solutions-oriented stories about the ways politicians and politics are improving society and the planet.

A big thank you to every journalist listed below for their invaluable contribution to creating a better tomorrow with their forward-thinking approach to media coverage.
