11 March: #UkraineFacts: How fact-checkers worldwide are working together to combat disinformation on the Ukraine conflict. Fact-checkers from around the world have debunked more than 1,200 falsehoods about the war in Ukraine since the Russian invasion about two weeks ago. Through the #UkraineFacts collaborative initiative, the fact-checkers are mapping out how misinformation is spreading in many languages and where it has been flagged as misleading.
Enock Nyariki is the International Fact-Checking Network’s community and impact manager. He works to empower fact-checkers from around the world who have signed up to IFCN’s principles of nonpartisanship and transparency.
In a time where truth is more challenged than ever, we invite you for 20 minutes, once a week, to learn from the brightest minds on the fight against disinformation.
This series of events will serve as an arena from all involved in the fight against disinformation. Ranging from journalists, fact-checkers, researchers, technology companies, to media organizations in a joint effort to address this challenge to reliable media, and threat to democracy.
Every Friday from 10:00 am to 10:20 am.
