Effective youth empowerment strategy to detect Fake News

The fourth learning, training, teaching activity from the project Empowering youth to critically analyse fake news took place in Romania, Constanta. Our association hosted this event, having as guests representatives from our partners: Solidaridad Sin Fronteras – Spain, Petit Pas – Italy, Inbie – Poland, and lastly, Cemea from France, who joined us online.

Representatives had the opportunity to teach the other participants new ways to combat Fake News, with help from the materials all of us developed throughout the strategic partnership. Thus, we discussed about fake news during COVID-19, we learned how to identify fake news, how fake news are disseminated, and many more.

In order for the participants to understand how the youth organizations can empower young people to detect fake news and disinformation, we presented them and invited to test the results of our collaboration with European partners:

  • Participants collaborated to pilot the practical activities developed by #NoFakeNews team, and contributed to drafting the youth strategy of intervention.
  • As the result of cooperation with partners, we developed 10 Online courses for youth to improve their digital citizenship skills. We invited participants to take a look on the website of DigCit project and become active learners on the online platform.
  • Participants piloted our Techbyrinth App which is an educational tool developed by Techbyrinth team. The App allows young people to identify the appropriate and inappropriate uses of technology and the internet and to improve their online behaviour and become more digital competent.

They have the occasion to exchange cultural experiences and enjoyed together the Romanian dinner, accompanied by our European Solidarity Corps volunteers.
