On 23 January 2019, we invited experts from around Europe and the US to our second unconference in Vienna to continue with the Global Editors Network's programme The European Media Literacy Toolkit for Newsrooms: Combating misinformation and disinformation by restoring trust in journalism.
Together with our partner fjum - Forum Journalism and Media, a non-profit organisation fostering quality journalism through innovative advanced training, orientation, and networking on an international level, and the support of our participants' experts we discussed what tools we need to increase and support media literacy, and for whom we're building those tools.
