YouLead – Empowering Youth Ambassadors in the Fight Against Online Mis- and Disinformation

We currently live in a world where viral mis- and disinformation online can impede social justice, change the outcomes of presidential elections and even cost people their lives during public health crises. Therefore, the Global Campus of Human Rights is looking for young people who want to help be part of the solution by taking on biased algorithms, learning digital verification skills to spot fake or misused content and advocating for digital literacy within their respective communities. 
Only 25 youths will be selected for this competitive online training programme which will take place in March 2022. Interested individuals aged 15 to 18 can send in applications until 10 January 2022. You can find out more and apply with a 2-minute video explaining your motivation to join here.
