Training on Disinformation for Local Media in Mykolaiv

10.April.2019

On the 8th and the 9th of April, a training was held for local media representatives in Mykolaiv on recognising and countering disinformation in cyberspace. Experts from Ukraine🇺🇦 and Estonia🇪🇪️ shared their best practices and lessons learned through practical exercises on the dangers of disinformation and how to decrease their impact. Media representatives who are able to identify disinformation can in turn contribute to increasing the media literacy skills of their audience. Continuous training is required to help the journalists keep up-to-date with the increasingly more sophisticated methods and tools used to create and spread disinformation.🔍

The session was organised by ECEAP in cooperation with the Hybrid Warfare Analytical GroupCivil Network OPORA and with input from Stopfake, who all have extensive experience in the field. The training is part of an ongoing effort financed by the European Union.🇪🇺
