Empowering Global News (EGN) collects and distributes inspiring, positive, balanced and objective news in various formats from people around the world and enables access to other websites and initiatives with positive and objective news. In short, EGN is about creating alternative channels that give people hope.

 

Why Empowering Global News?

  • To offer an alternative analysis of media consumption, highlighting the positive.
  • To create a responsible news culture, focusing on balance instead of drama and sensationalism and empowerment instead of helplessness.
  • To showcase and inspire success stories of real people.
  • To connect people from different parts of the world.

What Is this Initiative about?

We provide news on our website which we believe is positive, inspiring, objective, balanced, unbiased or empowering. We are also a gateway to other websites and initiatives with positive and objective news. Furthermore, EGN is about creating a community and connecting people who inspire each other – real stories from real people.

We would like as many people around the world as possible to send us their positive/inspiring news by the 28th of every month. The best news will be put into a monthly e-newsletter which will be sent out at the beginning of every month. You may send an email, photo, video or article reporting something inspiring or good happening to you or something positive that you notice which you normally would not (however small or big it may be). For more details see the page “Get Involved“.

How Did It Start?

The project initiator, Martina, was inspired by a project conducted by her friend Jarda who called his project “Inspiring News”. It was back in 2008. She liked the idea of co-creating inspiring news broadcast so she contributed with her news and also helped with creating video out of some of the news. (Check the video from August 2008.)

As a professional coach, Martina is very aware of the interaction between thoughts and action. Bothered by the prevalence of negativity in the news and the devastating impact on many people, she decided to take action. In 2011, Martina started the project “Empowering Global News” as a news aggregator of positive news.

In 2013, and after a major re-alignment exercise, EGN was re-launched to empower people all over the world to balance their own news consumption. Valentina came on board as Chief Editor.

Since the end of 2013, EGN has been providing positive and empowering news and has been offering access to other similar websites.
