“Fight disinformation with media literacy” is a Media Meets Literacy initiative by the Evens Foundation, organised with the Media & Learning Association and supported by the European Commission’s DG CONNECT.
It will be a one day event aimed at educators and teachers, with a choice of workshops showing hands-on tools and methods to tackle topics such as propaganda, disinformation and fake news, not only in formal education, but also in informal settings (youth work, libraries,…).
During this event you will find out more about a range of different initiatives from all over Europe including the Mind over Media platform for analysing contemporary propaganda, FactBarEDU which brings fact-checking into the classroom to empower future voters and EMELS – a hands-on media literacy standard with resources for youth workers.
Confirmed speakers and experts include Renee Hobbs, Media Education Lab in the US and Mikko Salo, Faktabaari in Finland.
The event will take place in Brussels on 13 November 2018 in the Centre for Fine Arts BOZAR.
