Countering Disinformation Online is a tool for civil society organisations, active citizens and any curious individuals who want to know more about helping free societies from the pressure of disinformation and false news.
This website developed by GLOBSEC Strategic Communication Programme serves as a “one stop shop” with plenty of up-to-date tools and resources, easily accessible for anyone interested. As an NGO with a long experience in the field, we understand the restrictions of limited resources and options for organisations and individuals who want to play an active role in the civil society. Therefore, we are more than happy to share the knowledge and tools that helped us in pursuing our goals!
As the Strategic Communication Programme, we aim to strengthen the resilience of Central European societies to subversive efforts by undemocratic foreign actors and defend the integrity of the information space. While providing data and research-driven insight into the impact of information warfare and disinformation campaigns for expert community, our capacity-building and awareness-raising activities have reached thousands of people. One of our 2017 campaigns on critical thinking and online manipulation with top Slovak YouTubers reached more than half a million young people on social media.
