Activities

Social Campaign Implementation: we will crowd-source ideas for the best campaign ideas in two pilot countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina and Romania) through a public online challenge. The chosen ideas will later be subject to intensive work with campaign experts to finalize and implement the campaigns.

Education Program

Blended training modules on persuasive storytelling and combating propaganda organized for trainers with high scaling and replicating capacity in up to four countries.

Community Building

MEGAPHONE – international camp on information literacy in Romania (November 13 -15), which will bring together around 100 social activists, NGOs, journalists, hackers, designers, content specialists, and data analysts from across Central and Eastern Europe. This tried and tested methodology ensures collaboration, sharing, peer learning, synergizing efforts, networking, community building, sharing strategies and diversifying voices to promote solidarity and openness, and to cultivate an atmosphere of trust and support.
