Youth Resisting Disinformation

Activity Type: Topic: , ,

This project aims to skill up young people and strengthen the capacity of civil society organisations to resist
misinformation and disinformation. In partnership with YLab, Commons Library will co-design educational resources to be disseminated by young people within their communities. This will help young people to identify mis/disinformation on social media platforms and equip them with critical-thinking skills for engaging with online content. Online workshops will be provided for young people and participants will acquire peer-to-peer education skills, enabling them to become advocates and leaders. We will also produce a guide for civil society organisations on how to combat disinformation using resources and research from around the world.
