This workshop series aims to help participants get immunity against dis- and misinformation on selected themes by equipping them with easy-to-use tools.

This workshop is hosted by Beyond The Horizon

We are all exposed to infodemics spreading around – such as the viruses of pandemic – which can severely impact our decisions. These may include disinformation, misinformation, fake news, and other types of interference on different issues related to public life, your own health, political or economic preferences.

We all need to defend ourselves and build cognitive immunity, such as by getting  vaccines and regular boosters against the spread of the pandemic.

This workshop series aims to help participants get immunity against dis- and misinformation on selected themes by equipping them with easy-to-use tools.

  • We equip you with different tools to defend yourself using 3 vaccines:
    • digital information literacy (DIL)
    • media & information literacy (MIL)
    • critical thinking (CT)
  • We empower you with extra 3 booster shots by applying these tools on selected hot dis/misinformation themes:
    • elections
    • health
    • migration

Each workshop focuses on 1-2 selected vaccine(s) and 1 booster. Our workshops are designed for vulnerable people including  youthstudents, residents of Belgium and also elderly who are affected on a daily basis by circulating mis/disinformation via media, internet and also word of mouth. For this workshop we will focus on digital literacy and migration themes.

Workshop will be limited to 25 people and registration is required on Beyond the Horizon's website.
