2nd GEN-Unconference: Media Literacy Toolkit

How can newsrooms and journalists take ownership of promoting trust and transparency in their work? How can we reinforce the responsibility of journalists towards confronting falsehoods and engaging the public in identifying, and fighting disinformation? What role should platforms have in facing these challenges? What digital tools are the most effective for achieving these goals? These are the challenges that will be addressed in this new programme by the Global Editors Network, supported by the European Commission.

This year long initiative will gather the knowledge of dozens of key players in the media literacy debate with the goal of creating a set of digital tools and best practices to facilitate understanding between journalists and citizens. This straightforward toolkit will be ready for newsrooms to implement into their workflows by June 2019.
