It was in Padua, Italy, that took place between September the 1st and the 7th 2019, the event that brought together about twenty young high school students from various nationalities, with the objective of working the phenomenon of false news, within the scope of the project Fake Off.
The group of five Portuguese youngters traveled with us and for a week had the opportunity to enjoy various activities, from team building to digital literacy training.
One of the main moments of the week was exploring the mobile application designed by Future Balloons. Young people were able to perform some practical exercises such as playing and evaluating the application. The last day was set aside for pitching and concluding sessions.
All activities were developed to make young people aware of the phenomenon of false news, the role they play in their lives and thus motivate them to develop critical thinking by acquiring new habits in their daily lives.
