Cathrine Gyldensted, a journalist who teaches at Denmark's School for Media and Journalism, has been planning to set up a national centre for constructive journalism in the belief that journalism urgently needs innovation, but on content rather than platforms. According to Gyldensted, more and more people who use news media say they do not want such a negative 24/7 news cycle.
