Call for MEDIA AND POLICY ACTIVISTS @ “Europeans Against Fake News” Online Event

  • Do you want to actively contribute to the fight against fake news?

  • Are you sick and tired of people spreading false information on the topic in which you have expertise?

  • Are you ready to share your knowledge and help build the critical thinking skills of young people?

If your answer to these questions is YES, you are the right address – the one that will help you achieve your ambitions!

How we will do this?

We are organizing a two-day Europeans Against Fake News (EAF)  online event where we will bring together a large number of young people and engage them in a discussion about fake news that are invading the online sphere. Through the series of creative activities and engaging methodologies adapted to online working conditions, we will work on enhancing their media literacy and inspiring critical thinking of young people to enable them to learn how to recognize, debunk, and deconstruct fake news. As the final output of the event, we will create a set of memes intending to engage citizens in a debate on the impact of fake news. We will address fake news on 4 thematic units in which the majority of disinformation is created:

1. Fundamental rights in the time of Covid-19

2. Climate cha(lle)nge

3. Migration: “Hometown of disinformation and populist campaigns”

4. Euroscepticism as a democratic barrier

The EAF Online Event will be held on the 26th and 27th of March 2024 via the ZOOM platform!


If you decide to become part of our EAF team, we are offering you to:

  • learn about the new creative methodologies in working with young people in addressing fake news, 

  • meet and exchange with media activists and youth workers from all around Europe,

  • establish a wide network of partners that will allow you to expand your work and enhance your understanding of diverse national realities on the topic. 

Once selected, you will receive a quick capacity-building program that will boost your skills and allow you to engage in the implementation of EAF events! As a media and policy activist, you will have the opportunity to engage in discussion with young people about fake news, inspire their critical thinking, and enhance their media literacy. This will be done through the series of attractive and interactive methodologies that are designed to inspire interaction, and whose protagonist will be you. But don’t worry in advance about the process, we will be there to boost your skills and make you ready for your active participation at the online EAF event.
