The Global Summit on Disinformation, organized by the Inter American Press Association, the Fundación para el Periodismo (Bolivia) and Proyecto Desconfío (Argentina), is pleased to announce the six projects selected to participate in the Fact-Checking Projects Round segment of the III Global Summit on Disinformation, to be held online on September 27-28.
After an extensive and complex deliberation due to the high participation and quality of the projects presented, the following initiatives have been selected:
1. AFP (GLOBAL)
2. COTEJO.INFO (VENEZUELA)
3. LES SURLIGNEURS (FRANCE)
4. MINU (ARGENTINA)
5. VISA A CUALQUIER PARTE (ECUADOR)
6. STOPFAKE (UKRAINE/SWITZERLAND/USA)
Bolivia Verifica (Bolivia) and Infoveritas (Spain) have been the organizations in charge of the selection, from among more than 35 initiatives submitted. The selection criteria were based on the innovation and novelty of the projects, as well as their internationality, given the diverse and multicultural nature of the Summit.
The Project Round on fact-checking, to be held during the Summit, will last one hour and each project will have seven minutes of presentation time. Bolivia Verifica and Infoveritas will be in charge of presenting each initiative with a brief introduction.
One of the main objectives of the Global Summit on Disinformation is to consolidate a system of truthful media and news that guarantees access to verified content to an increasingly larger audience. To this end, the Summit brings together for two days, in a free online event, more than 20 international speakers who share their experiences and challenges. In addition to addressing various aspects of the issue, participants will provide resources against disinformation for the more than 1,300 people from five continents who have already registered to participate, a number that exceeds the numbers of previous editions.
The event is supported by Google News Initiative, the International Fact-Checking Network, the U.S. Embassy in Argentina, the United Nations Argentina, BancoSol Bolivia, and the Kimberly Green Center for Latin America and the Caribbean at Florida International University (FIU). This is a free online event, which requires prior registration at www.cumbredesinformacion.com.
The Summit is accompanied by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), Medianálisis, Bolivia Verifica, Asociación Nacional de Prensa de Chile, Fundación GABO, DW Akademie, Infoveritas, Asociación Colombiana de Medios de Información (AMI), Asociación de Entidades Periodísticas Argentinas (ADEPA) and United Nations Bolivia.
