MisinfoCon Kyiv: A Global Summit on Misinformation

MisinfoCon Kyiv: A Global Summit on Misinformation

THE PROBLEM

Misinformation, and increasingly disinformation, is distorting people’s ability to make sense of the world around them, threatening the democratic process around the globe. While not a new phenomenon, the problem is compounded by both the speed that information travels in our networked world, and the technological and cultural “filter bubbles” that we live our lives in. This is a problem that impacts all of us.

ABOUT MISINFOCON

We are a community of people focused on the challenge of misinformation and what can be done to address it. Our physical gatherings seek to strengthen the trustworthiness of information across the entire news ecosystem: journalism, platform, community, verification, and reader experience.

We bring together participants from different backgrounds because our goal is to connect leaders and catalyze actionable steps on how the various sectors can work together.
