Further Information

Would you believe if we told you that the world is a more peaceful place today than it has ever been before?

Probably not. Most are convinced of the opposite.

As a society, we have gotten used to the media reporting wars, poverty, and corruption. So saying that we live in a more peaceful world than we ever have before, sounds like nonsense, but that is the case. Our world is at a historical peak of positive progress in many areas, but the news rarely reaches us.

Our beliefs

Society is waking up and becoming aware of the importance of things such as mental health and how news can affect our mental health.

The flow of information in modern times comes to us at unprecedented speed, and most of us are connected more or less 24/7.

The fact is that positive and supportive news has sunken under the vast ocean of negative press and gotten lost in the daily magnitude.

At Góðar Fréttir, we want to make it possible for you to have easy access to news that gives you inspiration, hope, and joy about our world.

Recently, Góðar Fréttir conducted a study that included 906 individuals, taking an online survey. The survey concluded that the participants needed more positive news, thus encouraging our conviction.

Here are a few photos from the results:

The idea Góðar Fréttir sparks into action

The idea for Góðar Fréttir was born in a conversation between a young couple named Bjarki Steinn and Saga Ýr. This conversation took place while they were relaxing in a hot tub in the summer of 2019. Saga and Bjarki shared the opinion that positive news reporting was needed.

From there, the journey of Góðar Fréttir began. A year later, a team of 15 individuals started working tirelessly for the positive news media take-off: Góðar Fréttir.

Our team

Creators of Góðar Fréttir are Bjarki Steinn Pétursson and Saga Ýr Nazari. In the beginning, the Góðar Fréttir team included four individuals that had combined their creative minds and developed the idea into the form that required for the next steps.

That’s when the search started for journalists, photographers, designers, and all other vital links. Today our team is full of passionate individuals that have enabled us to make this project a reality.

Where does your contribution go?

Dear reader, all the amount that is granted goes into the costs that are needed to ensure that the quality material that we work/write gets published, both in print and digital form.

Future vision

Our direction is to become as influential as the most significant news media outlets in this country. With your help, we can build a steady, reliable, and supportive news media for the public and in that way contribute to further construction of the society in the years to come. We hope our contribution will make a creative path for coming generations to tread, where the balance in news feed has been reached, and we have shone a light on the vast magnitude of positive news that fills up our world.

Gratitude for contributors in advance

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for encouraging society’s awareness and supporting the mental health of future generations.
