Back to all news 2018-09-08 presented to the public at the “Būtent” festival

On 8th September 2018, at the “Būtent” festival in Lithuania, the Debunk! initiative was presented to the public and discussions about the initiative drew a lot of attention from the participants of the event.

“Disinformation today is spreading through various channels. Publications on social networks may reach extremely large audiences. The question is how to react to it. The aim of this initiative is to unite the largest media and the Lithuanian elves and to use modern technologies in order to fight against disinformation in real time,” – said the director of the initiative Viktoras Daukšas at the  discussion.

Funding from DELFI and Google DNI helped launch the Debunk! initiative, which started at the beginning of 2017. After more than a year, it became a separate initiative of national importance, uniting the main media, Lithuanian elves and representatives of the state.

The project is also supported by national StratComs, government officials  and society.
