Samma & Hömma: Fake News oder Fakten - Wie gehen wir gegen Desinformation vor?

Spoken word Vortrag Workshop Talk Gesellschaft Politik Live Interaktiv
In the organizer's words:

In our digitally networked world, disinformation campaigns are constantly on the rise. They influence not only public opinion, but also our coexistence in cities and our democratic processes. How do autocratic states use these strategies, and how can we respond to them in a constitutional state? What role do influencers play in disinformation campaigns on social media? We would like to discuss these and other questions together at our event.

The event will take place on Wednesday, November 22, 2023 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Lensing-Carreé Conference Center in Dortmund in cooperation with the Office for International Relations of the City of Dortmund and the EUROPE DIRECT Dortmund. Admission is from 17:30, drinks and snacks will be provided. Admission is free, but places are limited - register here.
