Mistrust in institutions and politicians is a growing tendency in Western countries. What role does news journalism play in that? Could the eternal mudslinging in political debate have a role to play? Can news journalism act differently in order to facilitate a more future oriented, productive and visionary debate? Yes, states the speaker of this session. Cathrine Gyldensted serves as the world’s first Director of Constructive Journalism at Windesheim University, The Netherlands. In this talk she will present brand new research around the power of the future oriented question. In order to strengthen a visionary political debate that aims to lessen mistrust and polarization.
