ABOUT THE PROJECT:
This project focuses on creating a European-based media lite-racy, betting on initiatives that the European Union promotes against fake news and general misinformation.
This initiative would be divided into 3 phases:
- Transnational meetings between journalists and other com-munication agents from European countries, as a way of: dis-cussing fake news; knowing other forms of work and socio-professional realities; identifying ways to combat fake news and other forms of misinformation. In these meetings we hope to have the presence of the press offices of the Euro-pean Parliament and the European Commission.
- Conducting sessions for the general public, with particular emphasis on the young and senior population and journa-lism/communication students. Each session should have the participation of a local journalist and / or a member of the Eu-ropean Solidarity Corps trained in communication. The objec-tives are: to raise the awareness of the population about the dangers of Fake News and Disinformation, helping to identify false news published by Media and Social Networks; emphasi-ze the importance of having trained journalists and a strong press as a contributuion to the strengthening of European Democracy.
- Elaboration of a joint publication with the conclusions of the project, including a reflection on the state of the art in this matter, and suggestions to combat Fake news and other forms of misinformation.
