To celebrate European Media Literacy Week 2022, the European Fact-checking Standards Network (EFCSN) is highlighting a range of educational initiatives developed by fact-checkers. From online games to podcasts and training courses for students, the diverse group of projects are focused on helping equip the public with the tools to recognise – and refute – false information. 

Here is a summary of the various media literacy initiatives European fact-checking organisations  have rolled out over the past year: 

On Thursday October 27, 2022 most of the organisations above will be chatting about their projects on Twitter Spaces. To listen, set a reminder on your Twitter account:

The European Media Literacy Week , which runs from October 24-28, is an European Commission initiative held in alignment with the Global Media and Information Literacy Week, organised by UNESCO. 

The EFCSN project is part of the Call of Integrity of Social Media by the European Commission and is led by six European organisations focused on fighting misinformation: Fundación (Spain), AFP (France), CORRECTIV (Germany), DEMAGOG (Poland), Pagella Politica/ Facta (Italy) and EU DisinfoLab (Belgium).
