Truthblast Posted August 2, 2022 Share Posted August 2, 2022 (edited) UN + EUROPEAN COMMISSION + TWITTER + JEWISH CONGRESS https://en.unesco.org/themes/gced/thinkbeforesharing The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked a worrying rise in disinformation and conspiracy theories. Conspiracy theories can be dangerous: they often target and discriminate against vulnerable groups, ignore scientific evidence and polarize society with serious consequences. This needs to stop. Conspiracy theories cause real harm to people, to their health, and also to their physical safety. They amplify and legitimize misconceptions about the pandemic, and reinforce stereotypes which can fuel violence and violent extremist ideologies. UNESCO Director-General A new campaign helps you learn how to identify, debunk, react to and report on conspiracy theories to prevent their spread. Check out the infographics and social media pack below and help spread the word that facts matter and no one is to blame. Thinking critically and being informed about conspiracy theories is key to challenging them. This UNESCO campaign is implemented jointly with the European Commission, Twitter and the World Jewish Congress.
