GRANT VELVYSLANECTVÍ USA V ČESKÉ REPUBLICE
For the past two years, we have been proud recipients of a grant from the U.S. Embassy in Prague. We have been part of the Media Awareness Project
We organize seminars in Czech regions focused on media caution (not only) for seniors. They include journalists and experts on media literacy or disinformation.
The aim of the workshops is to raise awareness of the need to verify information and point out the existence of fake news in a safe environment where no one has to be afraid to ask questions and discuss.
Our speakers include Zdeněk Svoboda (certified lecturer in media education for seniors), Daniela Tunklová (Czech television reporter) and Veronika Krátka Špalková (analyst at the think tank European Values).
As part of the project of the US Embassy in the Czech Republic, we organize panel discussions focused on disinformation at cultural festivals.
In recent years, we have been part of the Slavonice festival or the Inspiration Forum at the Ji.hlava festival. For 2023 we are planning a cooperation with United Islands of Prague.
