The culture of communications is changing at a rapid pace, driven by the power of the internet and social networks. The digital communication environment, with its remarkable advantages and opportunities, also provides opportunities to different actors for conducting malicious influencing activities, divide societies, erode democratic values and sow distrust in our institutions. Users are encouraged to create personal echo chambers at the expense of information pluralism and to move away from reliable and credible news reporting and sound journalist analysis.
The virtual activity aims to increase the key knowledge and competencies of institutional spokespersons and journalists (including young professionals in journalism and related disciplines/areas) in the field of security and defence and in relation to strategic communication and news reporting on security threats.

Great course. I love the way it was designed and delivered. I learned a lot. The most important part is that I enjoyed every bit of each session!
Despite being skeptical about taking an online course from behind my laptop, I was surprised how well the online setting worked out – specifically the interaction with the professor and the other participants. On some level it was even better.
The discussions were interactive and lively as there was more room for asking questions, making comments and sharing links in the chat function of Zoom. The breakout rooms in small groups also fostered peer interaction.
The presentation tools helped us to structure the discussions and we could also see the progress and results of what we were creating together live on the screen.
Thank you and looking forward to joining other interesting projects coordinated by your amazing team!
