The 11th Changemaker of the 10th season of the Sabancı Foundation Turkey’s Changemakers program is Pozy, a platform where only happy and inspiring news is shared.

We encounter violent, upsetting, pessimistic news on different communication platforms almost every day. Troubled with this kind of news overtaking optimistic and positive news, Turgay Öztürk and his friends started a social enterprise, Pozy. It is a social enterprise established in 2017 to provide, share and make happy news accessible.

Pozy, which aims to only provide happy news, presents the news to the reader after filtering them through its emotional analysis system. Within Pozy, many volunteers also work to get the positive news that filter through the happy news filter to the reader.

So far, the social initiative Pozy has presented 2,260 happiness inducing positive news items out of 204,930 pieces of news.

Turgay Öztürk and his friends set out to give people happy news. They presented the positive news to readers from among thousands of news items. They positively contributed to the world of thought of people who read news. They made a huge difference in the areas of both media and social entrepreneurship.
