Fake news harms individuals and the democratic development of their countries. It is important for citizens to investigate, research, and communicate in order to verify news and its sources. The U.S. Embassy supports the development of media literacy in Georgia by working with the Media Development Foundation (MDF), whose staff run the Media Literacy Youth Lab which helps young people in different regions across Georgia develop analytical and fact-checking skills.
This year, within the framework of UNESCO's Global Media and Information Literacy Week, we were happy to support MDF's Media Literacy Forum which unveiled the U.S. Embassy-funded Georgian translation of the UNESCO handbook: "Journalism, 'Fake News' and Disinformation" - available here: https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000375682
