About the Campaign

Disinformation, propaganda, and “Fake News” have always existed. But why should we worry about that at all?

What makes it different today is its rapid dissemination and global reach. The spread of false information is being deliberately weaponised by the enemies of freedom. It’s being used to degrade public trust in democratic and state institutions, the media and to intensify social division, resentment and fear.

The campaign FreedomFightsFake empowers citizens around the globe to think critically and “pre-bunk” disinformation!

How can we detect which claims are (deliberately) false?
In what ways can we counter the global phenomenon of disinformation?
What is the state of media freedom around the world and how can we strengthen it?

Join us as we search for answers to these questions among others and let’s work together against disinformation!

ArtMarathon “Desinformatsiia”

In Ukraine, disinformation poses a particular threat to democracy, open society as well as national security. Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, together with Deutsche Welle Academy, tries to explore new ways of raising awareness and improving media literacy.

In early October 2020, 20 Ukrainian artists together with experienced journalists, illustrators and a copywriter created visually impactful art as a means to combat disinformation.
The artworks cover five topics: Heroes of Truth, Government against Disinformation, A Threat to Democracy, The Future of Journalism and The Covid Conspiracy.
