Online Training: “Understanding and handling disinformation for practitioners focusing on Africa”
A new training module on “Understanding and handling disinformation for practitioners focusing on Africa”, will be organized by The European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO), on 7th to 9th September, in collaboration with Africa Check and Fact Space West Africa.
In recent years it has become increasingly evident that disinformation crosses borders with varying risks for different media landscapes, highlighting the importance of better understanding the similarities and differences of disinformation techniques, patterns and flows and their impact on local information environments. At the same time cooperation among fact-checkers has proven essential to detecting and reacting to disinformation in different regions of the World.
Number of regional training programmes will be coordinate by the European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) in collaboration with local fact-checking organisations, aiming to strengthen resilience to online disinformation in different information environments, while drawing from the expertise of the European EDMO network.
