The rapid channels for communication of the journalists/media with the institutions responsible for certain areas of interest to the citizens have been launched. Through the WhatsApp platform, journalists will be able to ask questions directly, fact-check certain published information, consult experts in relevant fields, in order to avoid disinformation and media manipulation of the public.


The areas/topics for which journalists will be able to ask questions and raise initiatives are:

  • Covid-19
  • Census
  • Integrations
  • Environment


For each of the above topics, journalists will be able to ask questions and receive timely, accurate and verified information confirmed by relevant sources and/or experts.

In order to achieve fast, professional, efficient interactive communication, the project team prepared rules for mutual communication. A PDF document with the rules for mutual communication is available just below this text.
