About the Great News NetworkIf we feel that the world is falling apart and we feel that it is hopeless to try to make the world a better place, we'll then find ourselves asking: why even try?
The majority of the news that we are exposed to is bad and an unfortunate side effect is that it heavily influences a big part of our perception of ourselves and our planet.
Yes there are problems in the world, but there are also solutions to these problems.
To hear about solutions to the world's problems and to hear about the people who are working to come up with them is why the Great News Network exists.
The Great News Network is meant to supplement your daily news sources - not replace it. It's role is to show that there is hope, people are making a difference, and that a lot of things are getting better.
Optimism is a great catalyst for making the world a better place. When we can see there is hope, then we'll be more compelled to make the effort to do our part.
The Great News Network was founded in October 2003 by Ryan Logtenberg. Its mission is to report positive news which has the potential to inspire and motivate its readers to take action to make a better world.
