Kick-off meeting “Fake the system: EU tools against disinformation”

Kick-off meeting “Fake the system: EU tools against disinformation”

Last week Mano Europa team participated in the Kick-off meeting of the KA2 Strategic Partnership Cooperation project “Fake the system: EU tools against disinformation”. During the Kick-off meeting project partners discussed the most important things of the project such us the work plan, tasks and responsibilities and the Toolkit.

The idea of the project comes from the passion of the Italy for EU team for the activities promoted by the European Union, its values and cooperation between people. For this reason, we decided to create a project that attempts to stem a phenomenon that threatens solidarity and union between people: the spread of fake news.

Participants will be involved in all the activities of the project and should therefore be selected according to their knowledge and interest in the theme promoted. Specially young people, who spend more and more time on the Internet and social networks, are the main target of false news for propaganda and/or profit. Therefore, they need more responsibility and knowledge to stop the flow of intentional misinformation through critical thinking and more conscious internet and media education.
