Disinformation Battles: The tools to fight it in the Digital Era

July 18 @ 10:00 - 18:30 EEST

Free

We live in the most multicultural society our island has ever seen. This should be our time to better communicate and better understand each other. However, this is unfortunately not the case. Fake news and hate speech are prominent, especially online, and it feels like there is nothing our media or anyone else have been able to do to tackle these issues. Behold! There is a way.

A number of workshops that can train everyone on how to battle disinformation, be more informed and help others too!

🚀Tickets are available at Eventbrite here:

Early bird tickets are free on a first come first serve basis!
