DECODE THE INFO

After having given workshops in July 2020 to Verdun seniors that offered a methodology to verify the veracity of information in order to reduce the spread of misinformation in the context of Covid-19, Grandir Sans Frontières decided to continue these workshops, this time offering them to a wider audience.

Thus, the winter of 2021 will mark the launch of a new series of workshops: Decode the news. These workshops will combine investigative games, debates and montages to deal with misinformation.

Workshops will be held online on Tuesdays from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm and Thursdays from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm, starting January 19, 2021.
