Webinar on Fake News & Disinformation: Separating the truth from the lies and why it matters, Wednesday, 1 Dec at 7pm.

The fight against disinformation is a joint effort involving all European institutions. The EU is working in close cooperation with online platforms to encourage them to promote authoritative sources, demote content that is fact-checked as false or misleading, and take down illegal content or content that could cause physical harm.

Europe Direct Ballinasloe invites you to a presentation which will address the issue of disinformation and will provide guidelines for access to diverse and reliable media content.

Andrea Manning, CEO of Cyber-Pie will speak about how to recognise and evaluate information, the importance of fact-checking and using reputable sources, and who is really behind much of the disinformation appearing on our social media feeds.
