Transparency and Media Freedom

"Spreading disinformation is not noble!"

"MILdemic" is a Media and Information Literacy (MIL) project in four African countries. The goal: The user needs to distinguish what is right and wrong - to stop online disinformation.

Three statements, three opinions, one goal: To recognise the truth online and use social networks in such a way that disinformation doesn't stand a chance.

During the pandemic, the project "MILdemic" ("EMIdémie" in French) was launched in Côte d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Namibia to raise awareness on disinformation and what to do to fight it. This project is part of the DW Akademie's global initiative "Transparency and media freedom - Crisis resilience in the pandemic" supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The pilot project has just ended in four locations in Côte d'Ivoire: Yamoussoukro, Korhogo, Abengourou and Adzopé. Listen to what these three participants have to say as they share their own experiences about how they deal with disinformation. Their attitude to information is now more critical than ever. Disinformation doesn't stand a chance!
