Global Fact 8: International fact-checking conference

10/20/21 - 10/23/21    

The International Fact-Checking Network at the Poynter Institute is hosting a conference on fact-checking worldwide. Each day of the summit will feature seven hours of sessions to inspire lively discussions of the important role facts play in society. More than 70 speakers will discuss the fight against misinformation, especially during the pandemic, and what should be done in order to protect people from harmful misinformation. Those expected to speak include fact-checkers in countries around the world including officials from the World Health Organization, who will discuss their collaborative efforts in vaccine safety communication with the fact-checking community. The International Fact-Checking Network’s Director Baybars Orsek will facilitate a conversation to discuss the third-party fact-checking program with participants from Facebook about its five-year fact-check program; and former Buzzfeed News duo Craig Silverman (ProPublica) and Jane Lytvynenko (Shorenstein Center) will offer an extensive and updated training session for fact-checkers.
