New Project

Fighting Fake News in a Culture-Sensitive Manner

In the face of the rising threat of disinformation, we are supporting educators, recognizing their critical role not only as multipliers but also as key figures in combating this issue and individuals with their personal views and sensitive points. Therefore, we have developed an innovative training program aimed at supporting educators in Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. This program is designed to help teachers address the challenges of disinformation within their classrooms and support their personal and professional development.

CRISP, in collaboration with Civic Education Teachers’ Forum (CETF) and Eastern European Network of Citizenship Education (EENCE), has launched a project focused on the critical and emerging issue of disinformation in education. 

"Fighting Fake News in a Culture Sensitive Manner" is designed to bring together civic education teachers from Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia, equipping them with the skills to develop culture-sensitive educational materials and effectively manage classrooms in which disinformation may be prevalent.

The program aims at educators committed to fostering critical thinking and media literacy among students. The main objectives are to introduce educators to dilemma-based learning, equip them with the skills to manage classroom discussions around sensitive topics, and provide them with tools to counteract misinformation effectively.
