Like every year, December rhymes with balance sheets. And 2019 is no exception. Press reviews are popular as the year comes to a close, whether in federal politics, provincial politics, in communications industry, in sports or compared to weather , we can read several reports in the media. The good things and the bad ones of our company are thus portrayed through various articles during the last weeks of December. 

Question to put a smile on the face of the population which is too often inundated with bad news, an Italian artist, Mauro Gatti, has decided to open an Instagram account named The Happy Broadcast (here the website) which wants to be a place where positivism and good humor reign. So he identified several good news that arrived in 2019 and turned them into colorful and joyful infographics to illuminate the sometimes dark life that the media reflect on us.

“We are often bombarded with alarmist and shocking headlines that make us think the world is falling apart. While it's important to document crises and issues, I think there are also a lot of positive projects and initiatives in this world just begging to be revealed and promoted. We need more positive news to recognize that the world is gradually improving. "
