“Covid-19 Mis/Disinformation: Addressing the Viral Challenge” 

organised by the British Embassy in Paris, with the participation of Renaissance Numérique

 

Whether it is the Covid-19 pandemic or other global challenges such as climate change, viral news, rumours, and theories create floods of information that threaten our ability to rapidly identify critical information; this threatens our ability to protect our institutions, society and public health. In this regard, the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic has proven to be a “textbook case”. In such cases, how can civil society, companies, governments, scientists, regulators and international institutions and organisations work together to address the “mis/disinfodemic” viral challenge?

To answer this question, the British Embassy in Paris is organising an interactive morning aimed at reviewing the progress made to date in this regard and at identifying future cooperation opportunities. This event will take place on Wednesday 17th of November, from 9:00 to 12:30 and will be followed by a networking lunch. On this occasion, Renaissance Numérique’s president, Nicolas Vanbremeersch, will have the pleasure of moderating a panel discussion titled “How to work together to preserve our online information space?”

The conference will gather experts from civil society, governments, scientists, regulators and international institutions and organisations.
