Call for PARTICIPANTS @  “EuropeansAgainst Fake News” Online Event

  • Do you want to join a fight against fake news and disinformation?

  • Are you a creative person ready to meet new people and learn new things?

  • Are you ready to work together with experts and peers in an online environment to address fake news in Europe?

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

How will we 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 surrounding us in the online sphere. Through the series of creative activities and engaging methodologies adapted to online 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 hilarious memes to boost the dialogue on combating online disinformation narratives. These events will address fake news on 4 thematic units in which the majority of the fake news today 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!
