We invite you to be part of the webinar, on the topic “Target audience mapping & positive narratives as essential tools for combating disinformation” which will be held on 22 December 2020 starting at 16:00 – 17:30.

In an online world full of disinformation campaigns, being able to recognize and distinguish them can make the difference for highly-effective organizations. Instead of countering disinformation campaigns, producing a creative positive narrative campaign based on strategic communication goals has proven to be highly efficient.

During the webinar, you will learn how to share your message in a targeted structural way in order to have the biggest probability of an impact and much-desired change.

More specifically you will:

  • Understand how powerful disinformation and propaganda are and why it is important to create an alternative, positive narratives to build resilient marginalized communities;
  • Distinguish and define specific target audiences as an important part of creating an impactful campaign;
  • Understand the value of storytelling and its effectiveness
