New grant by Humanists Victoria.

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.
