About us

Geneva Solutions is an independent non-profit news platform covering International Geneva.

Our editorial culture is based on constructive journalism principles, leveraging Geneva’s historical and ongoing efforts to finding solutions to global issues. Our website along with the newsletter, the GS Daily Brief, launched on 24 August 2020.

Our news coverage is centred on topics key to International Geneva: peace, humanitarian affairs and human rights; climate and the environment; global health; sustainable business, finance & trade; and science & technology.

BACKGROUND

In 2019, Geneva Solutions was selected as the winning proposal in response to the call for projects initiated by the Confederation, the Canton and the City of Geneva to create a journalistic platform on the work of organisations that provide public services worldwide from Geneva.

Submitted by the ​Heidi.news​ team, Geneva Solutions is an independent project covering the work of International Geneva — a community of 40 international organizations, representations of 179 States, and hundreds of NGOs, which increasingly collaborate with the private sector and the academic world.

OUR OBJECTIVES

​Introducing Geneva to a global audience

We strive to ensure that our articles can be read and shared around the world so that the mechanisms and decisions of international organisations are accessible to all.

Putting solutions in the spotlight

Relying on solutions journalism, we strive to add value to stories by presenting the potential responses and solutions to today’s global challenges and engaging readers as much as possible with a broad vision of current news events.

Putting a face on people and initiatives

Readers often don’t get to see many of the faces of people fighting for the rights of others. Younger generations and minorities are also encouragingly taking an increasingly important place in the global governance space. There are so many remarkable individuals who deserve the spotlight and it is our duty, as a news platform, to ensure that their receive the coverage they deserve.
