Anti-disinformation training for young Moldovans


Together with local experts, Moldovan students dealt with different forms of disinformation in traditional and social media.

Dr. Clara Iglesias Keller from the Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research in Hamburg provided an international view on disinformation and prevention work. She presented various international approaches to regulation and explained the European Union's approach to anti-disinformation work. Alexander Sängerlaub (futureins) used the example of Germany to show how digitalisation has changed the information ecosystem in this country. Building a strong news and information literacy is of particular importance for liberal democracies.

Where there is the internet, there is disinformation. It is a global problem. - Alexander Sängerlaub, futureins

Between June and November 2021, the participants dealt with the complex topic of disinformation in four modules. The inforMD training series focused on the reduction of disinformation in the Republic of Moldova. The aim was to consolidate the knowledge imparted and to integrate the practical application into the students' project ideas in a solution-oriented manner. Six participants and their convincing projects received scholarships for the implementation of their ideas. They will also be able to present their projects to a broad audience at the inforMD Networking Lab.
