Facts and figures
Disinformation is one of the biggest emerging risks for 2024 and the misuse of artificial intelligence (AI) is a contributing factor, according to the World Economic Forum.
Young people spend increasingly more time online and are much more likely to reach out to their social media feeds when looking for news. Yet, many of them still lack the skills and competences to safely navigate online and critically assess the information they encounter.
