FAKE NEWS COURSES
The diversity of news distributed via social media communication channels exposes citizens, especially youth, to large scale disinformation including misleading and false information. Propaganda, misinformation and Fake news have the potential to polarise public opinion, to promote violent extremism and hate speech and, ultimately, to undetermined democracies and reduce trust in the democratic processes (Council of Europe, 2018). Aiming at reducing this phenomena, a consortium of five European organizations involved more than fifty participants in workshops, webinars, training courses for exchanging good practices and transnational meetings. By this approach, we enhance the capacity of youth workers and youth organizations in their support for young people to interpret, analyse and evaluate the Fake News.
