Unconference in Lisbon

The Media Literacy Toolkit

04 April 2019

The third and final unconference was hosted in Lisbon on 4 April 2019 in partnership with the Portuguese Press Association (APImprensa). We invited experts from around Europe to the final spurt of our unconference-series for The European Media Literacy Toolkit for Newsrooms: Combating misinformation and disinformation by restoring trust in journalism. 

Together with developers, journalists, designers, and product managers we focused on creating suitable technical guidelines of the prototypes for the toolkit. 

You can download the Lisbon white paper with the outcomes and guidelines below, and stay updated by following the programme's progress on Twitter with #GENMediaLit and our newsletter
