About Positive Stories

+Stories represent a Positive solution for all. It acts as a social enterprise that is Leaving No One Behind, creating a synergy of daily-doses-of-positivism from every country of the world, remaining sustainable and green initiative while solution-oriented.

WHO’s studies and recommendations are emphasizing the impact watching, reading, listening to daily news has. At the very beginning, we started questioning: if news can stress people out, why do they keep going back for more? For one thing among the others, it’s entertaining. Of course, many people feel it’s important to stay informed, however the way everyone gets their news —coupled with the narrative of news that dominates today—may cause negative effects such as stress, anxiety, fatigue or sleep loss. 

The solution we are introducing is aiming to serve as a guardian of their mental well-being.

Therefore, Positive Stories melts hands-on and accessible solutions leveraging the voices of individuals while inspiring others to take concrete actions for the benefits of society.

Positive Stories aims to leverage the power of positive storytelling by giving every single individual the opportunity to share experiences, aspirations, and solutions. By doing so, Positive Stories initiative gives a voice to individuals to advance sustainable development while fostering compassion, solidarity, and a sense of belonging. Gathering all testimonies in a unique platform, we aim to help all individuals to better understand local needs while being encouraged to act as one for a better world for all. 

Positive Stories engage public and private stakeholders, social media influencers, awarded journalists and storytellers about experience and knowledge sharing. The initiative is a global community which has the aim of fighting negativity and encouraging positive and concrete actions. Positive Stories spot the positive and highlight positive global testimonies, capture unheard and vulnerable voices, and foster the culture of humanity and compassion. The organisation rewards its community by leveraging their voices honouring the solidarity, hope, courage, humanity, compassion and (pro)active efforts of individuals. Inspiring citizens to take positive actions for good, Positive stories is a catalyst for sustainable development.

Positive stories aims to overcome societal, territorial, and cultural barriers, Positive Stories empowers individual citizens using richly diverse narratives told through a globally connected community of changemakers to build a brighter and more sustainable future.

Positive Stories is a unique online platform that serves as citizens’ daily dose of positive insights and movements, their “safe space” to entertain, find, share, gather positive, practical, and change-making aspirations from all over the world through the power of storytelling. The key aspect of the solution is to fight global challenges while reinforcing solidarity in order to foster sustainable development. Positive Stories spot the positive through stories, actions, movements, individuals and bring them upfront by using new media and technologies.
