Citizens can defeat disinformation 2024

This is the 2nd campaign on fighting disinformation that the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is organising as part of its overall project on disinformation to be implemented with the help of civil society.

Disinformation typically spreads among the population, often horizontally, so that the best way to tackle the problem is not in a top-down approach, but in citizens’ reflection and direct engagement. This is where organized civil society can play a crucial role.

The project consists in holding events and information campaigns in the Member States and applicant countries. Following a successful campaign in Bulgaria, the Republic of Moldova has been selected for the 2nd edition. The EESC is organising this event in cooperation with the Moldova State University in Chișinău.
