The Metamorphosis Foundation, within its project activities for efficient, accurate and fast information of the media, and of the citizens/the public, today will launch its two platforms for informing the citizens, and thus the public.

The event “How to achieve closer cooperation between institutions and journalists in the fight against disinformation?” will talk about how the thematic communication groups on the WhatsApp platform will operate. In these groups, journalists will be able to be informed faster, ask questions and get answers on 4 topics: Covid-19, census, environment, integrations.

The second possibility for this is the open Viber group for placing verified information, DE FACTO: verified content only, where fake news reviews are shared in order to raise awareness about the pandemic and disinformation about the coronavirus.

This topic will be discussed by Mladen Čadikovski, President of the Association of Journalists of Macedonia (AJM), and Katerina Sinadinovska, President of the Management Board of the Council of Media Ethics of Macedonia (CMEM); Marjan Zabrčanec, National Coordinator for Strategic Communications and Implementation of the Government Communication Strategy and Bardhyl Jashari, Executive Director of the Metamorphosis Foundation. The discussion will be moderated by Goran Rizaov, manager of the program Media for Democracy at the Metamorphosis Foundation.

The event will be held on the ZOOM platform, on 21 October 2021 from 13: 00-14: 30. Meeting ID: 924 2383 8276
