On 20./21.11.2018 the partner consortium of the No alternative Facts project met in Sofia, Bulgaria, for the two-day kick-off meeting. The project aimed to create common ground in terms of envisaged outcomes, future activities and ways to approach our target groups.
First steps: The partners will start with conducting comprehensive research activities in order to get an overview of the current state of affairs in the partner countrues as a basis for developing a state-of-the-art interactive learning environment aimed to support educators in increasing their competences and resources to promote media literacy, and critical thinking amongst disadvantaged young adults. The research activities will include desk research, focus groups and interviews and an large online survey.

Young people today are growing up in a globalised world and are processing information from a wider variety of sources than ever before. They need the critical literacy skills to navigate the potential pitfalls when consuming news, particularly when using online sources and social media. Media literacy is crucial for sustaining democracy by knowing which information sources to trust and which media are trustworthy.
This is where the project comes in – we want to develop tools to support trainers and tutors working with (disadvantaged) young adults, in order to increase their media literacy, critical thinking and digital competences with the aim to raise their awareness of the phenomenon and to prepare them to take more activiely part in decision making processes and, last but not least, in a democracy.
