Bringing the Fact-Checkers of the world together
For the seventh year running, the
Once more, it will be a practitioner’s conference, where participants will come together to share their experiences and learn about best practices to implement in their own work.
“We are very proud to host this conference in Oslo,” said Kristoffer Egeberg, Faktisk's editor-in-chief. "Scandinavia outranks most when it comes to freedom and democracy. However, along with the rest of the world, misinformation and disinformation have become a major challenge in the Nordic countries. In small nations with few fact-checkers, we need to set rivalries aside and work together across borders and disciplines. That is what the IFCN and the Global Fact are all about: learning together and working together, exchanging experiences in the fight against disinformation.”
In its seventh edition, Global Fact will run four tracks:
A call for papers will be announced in partnership with Oslo Metropolitan University. Global Fact 7 will host presentations by scholars on misinformation, online trust and information integrity.
The flagship track of Global Fact conferences will again bring practitioners together and foster discussions on fact-checking, verification, newsroom economics and management
Automated fact-checking, the role of AI, ethics of algorithms, tools, and products for fact-checking on dark social and closed messaging apps will be discussed by participants
Mentoring and coaching sessions from industry leaders will be offered to executives of fact-checking organizations to help them grow their leadership skills in management, fundraising, partnerships and teamwork. In addition to the above, Global Fact 7 in Oslo will bring together participants from diverse backgrounds and utilize networking opportunities.
