The CheckMate project, funded by Erasmus+, commenced in autumn 2023 with the aim of further support the cause of tackling mis- and disinformation and, by extension, limit its
consequences among the people directly or indirectly affected by the project’s activities.
Also, CheckMate aims to increase media literacy among adults by training participants in various methods and strategies to critically question and counter information.
The innovative tools developed as part of this initiative will encourage Europeans to remain vigilant, equip them with knowledge of international law, and enhance their critical thinking and media literacy skills.
We are delighted to be actively participating in this noteworthy project alongside partners from Austria, Greece, Cyprus, France, and Italy. The project partners convened in Vienna to initiate project activities promptly, striving to minimize the impact of fake facts and news in the future.
