Next steps for tackling fake news and improving media literacy

April 2022

Price: £95 PLUS VAT

The agenda is structured to bring out latest thinking on:

  • key trends - latest developments in online misinformation
  • countermeasures - how they are evolving and innovating
  • responsibilities - the role of platforms, government, and individuals in tackling fake news
  • case studies - latest initiatives and thinking on tackling online misinformation
  • media literacy - assessing measures and potential impact of the DCMS Online Media Literacy Strategy

It will be a timely opportunity to consider priorities following the publication of the Draft Online Safety Bill, as well as implications and concerns around reporting and online information on the conflict in Ukraine, and what can be learned from the impact of COVID-19 on the prevalence of fake news online.

We are pleased to be able to include a keynote session with Claire Levens, Head of Media Literacy and Policy Evaluation, Ofcom, as well as further keynote contributions from Liz Corbin, Deputy Media Director and Head of News, European Broadcasting Union; Claire Gill, Partner, Carter-Ruck; and Dr Kristine Sørensen, President, Global Health Literacy Academy.

The agenda also includes senior speakers from the DCMS, BBCTwitterYouTube, Logically, the LSEParentZone, Reuters, Trilateral Research, and the University of Exeter.

The conference will be an opportunity for stakeholders to consider the issues alongside key policy officials who are due to attend from DCMS; Ofcom; DHSC; CMA; HMRC; the Home Office; BEIS; The Scottish Government; and the Welsh Government - as well as parliamentary pass-holders from POST; the House of Commons Library; The Scottish Parliament; and the Welsh Parliament.
