Guardian launches The Upside, supported by the Skoll Foundation

Rachel White: "With support from the Skoll Foundation, we’re pleased to be able to tell these stories."

The series is made possible by funding from the Skoll Foundation via theguardian.org, a nonprofit set up by The Scott Trust to support quality independent journalism around some of the most pressing issues of our time, says The Guardian.

The six-month editorially independent series will use a mixture of reportage, investigation, video, pictures, interviews and first hand accounts to celebrate and amplify ‘solutions focused’ stories on subjects including climate and clean energy, healthcare, women and girls, community leadership and science and technology. The series launches with a focus on Finland’s extraordinary success story.

In addition, the Skoll Foundation will be working with The Guardian’s branded content studio, Guardian Labs, to produce a separate series focused on the work of social entrepreneurs driving systems change. That series is timed to coincide with Skoll’s signature annual event, the Skoll World Forum in Oxford (April 10-13).

Rachel White, EVP philanthropic and strategic partnerships, Guardian News & Media said: “Behind the headlines there are often remarkable people, visionaries and movements who are trying to find innovative answers to the problems posed by today’s world, but all too often these stories remain untold.

“With support from the Skoll Foundation, we’re pleased to be able to tell these stories as a continued part of The Guardian’s commitment to reporting not only on the pressing issues in the world today, but also the innovators who are providing solutions.”
