WORLD The world is not the frightening place told by the mass media. To demonstrate it, some communication and information professionals, in the field of creativity or journalism, have decided to take a radical position: to publish and share only good news! Together with Mauro Gatti, founder of The Happy Broadcast, we reflect on the reasons: from the inspirational power of good examples to mental health. But first let’s take a look at other “positive and constructive” editorial projects such as The Upside columns of The Guardian and Fixes by The New York Times, the pioneering Positive News magazine and the more recent Reasons to be Cheerful founded by artist and musician David Byrne.

PARIS without its Tour Eiffel. Impossible even to imagine, today. But if some French intellectuals would have won their battle, the Iron Lady (Dame de Fer) might have survived for maybe just twenty years or maybe less. The French originally hated it. If not all, certainly an important group of high-profile artists, thinkers and creatives who signed a petition to protest against the tower during its construction. They expressed all their hate towards this “useless” and “monstrous” monument with a love letter to their City of Lights (Ville Lumière) and finesse, published on Valentine’s Day 1887.
