Everyone loves good news

From students to Heads, editors to world explorers and the Prime Minister himself, Everyone Loves Good News

Good news is like an ice cold drink on a scorching hot day.

The impression is that the world has suddenly been filled with overwhelming bad news.

But good news can change the world.

The GNP exists to train and inspire young people to get their good news right across the world.

here are a few snippets of some of the people we have met along the way.

“Well done to the students of Jill Dando‘s old school who are bringing her memory alive with a living, breathing news centre to train up young journalists and get out good news.

“Stories of children showing great, determination and all the acts of positivity inspire others and fill the media with much-needed good news.”
Sir Ranulph Fiennes
