Event Description

97% of Europeans have been exposed to online disinformation, 37% of them on a daily basis. Disinformation has a negative impact on society, in particular on political affairs, immigration, minorities and security.

One of the key antidotes against disinformation is increasing citizens’ media literacy – pupils, adults, any end user of online content. Media literacy is recognized as the most efficient, although long-term, solution to issues such as disinformation, hate speech and social media abuse.

11 years ago, ALL DIGITAL started a European campaign on digital and online literacy then called Get Online Week to motivate Europeans to get online and benefit from the opportunities of the digital world. Today, the ALL DIGITAL Week carries on this mission. With the increasing digitalization of media, digital media literacy has become an integral part of it.

This is why we will launch the 11th ALL DIGITAL Week with a discussion on online disinformation and fake news and how to fight this phenomenon by empowering the citizen. This will also be the launch event of the first European campaign on disinformation and fake news “Get your facts straight!”.
