Under the slogan - Do not get infected with disinformation! - the project entails conducting a series of media literacy trainings and seminars for youngsters and teachers to enable them to identify and verify disinformation around COVID-19 and disseminate their acquired knowledge.


The project further entails webinars for youngsters and their parents to help them navigate into the new media ecosystem and realize their vital role as media consumers in combatting malign information.


In the framework of an active media literacy campaign, the project will help youngsters to counter the COVID-19-related malign information using scientific evidence and contribute to the fight against the infodemic.
