The EAF event in Slovenia

The third EAF event took place in the Ivan Cankar student dormitory and in the Secondary school of economics in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from 22nd to 25th October 2023. The event  gathered a diverse group of youth educators, young people, and media and policy activists to engage them in a creative exploration of how fake news is formed and disseminated in digital spaces. Besides that, they worked on building media literacy and critical thinking skills that can help young people to detect and deconstruct fake news. This was all done through a series of interactive workshops and living libraries prepared by our youth educators, trainers and media and policy experts. As during the previous EAF event,  fake news within 4 thematic units were addressed: 1.) Climate Cha(lle)nge, 2.) Migration – the hometown of disinformation, 3.) Euroscepticism as a democratic barrier and 4.) Fundamental rights in the time of COVID-19,.

The main product of the EAF Slovenia is a set of engaging and creative flash mob performances. These flash mobs serve to raise awareness about the dangers of spreading fake news online. The flash mobs were performed on several bussy locations around Ljubljana from December 2023 to February 2024, ensuring that a large number of citizens got a chance to join a debate on online disinformation and how  its negative impact can be minimized.
