“Countering fake-news and hate speech online” was developed as part of the LYM project – Leave Your Mark – funded by the European Union under the CERV program. The project is led by Associazione InformaGiovani together with a network of European civil society organizations.
The training consists of two main courses, each of which is divided into several sessions. The course on countering cyber hate to prevent its danger to individuals and communities was developed on the basis of INACH’s – International Network Against Cyber Hate – long experience with research, monitoring and countering activities on the subject. The course on fake news was developed by the Associazione Stampa Sarda – the Sardinian Press Syndicate – involving Italian journalists, media experts, university professors and researchers.
