Youth workers fight against manipulation

Erasmus project meeting to fight against manipulation

We were pleased to welcome to Constanta an European group of youth workers fighting against manipulation and Fake News spreading. Primarily, we aim to bring correctness and fair sharing of news into the attention of youth. Thus, the meeting was the first step for a successful cooperation. In addition, we discussed and shared experiences about the impact of intentional misinformation and fake news over the young people. In spite of the fact that solutions for checking news and information are available on several international websites, there are not enough used. For this reason, it is our role to develop and promote adequate solutions to increase awareness on the importance of checking the news.
Main challenge: prepare youth organizations and youth workers to fight against manipulation and appropriately empower youth for dealing with Fake news.
