Countering propaganda through increased media literacy

Zvol Si Info, which means “choose info”, focuses on increasing media literacy and encouraging critical thinking among Czech youth, who are often the targets of disinformation. By teaching young people how to recognize and counter hate-fueled propaganda, Zvol Si Info hopes to challenge extremism at its origins. The team behind this campaign created a toolkit called The Surfer's Guide to the Internet, which they use to teach people how to identify disinformation by illustrating the most commonly used propaganda techniques. The guide also provides tips on how to counter them. The campaign uses a combination of online and offline activities, like workshops on media literacy, as well as their online toolkit, to reach their audience.
