Well informed! - How to deal with the media properly

Journalism is neither dead nor controlled by the government. But many people find it difficult to believe in the media and to orientate themselves in the flood of information. An evening seminar by and with media experts from the European Institute for Journalism and Communication Research (EIJC) in cooperation with the Media Foundation of Sparkasse Leipzig is intended to serve as a guide through the confusing variety of media offers.

Over the course of one and a half hour, you will learn how to recognize reliable reporting and distinguish it from mood makers. The lecturers will show you how to see through tendency displays and so-called "fake news" and what the quality of "quality media" is about. Using short exercises, techniques are taught with which even laypeople can check messages quickly and easily.

The aim of the event is to give participants more security when dealing with information - on the Internet as well as in newspaper reading or with the remote control.

The event is for free. It is aimed at adults without special previous knowledge.

Location: Media Campus Villa Ida, Media Foundation of Sparkasse Leipzig (Poetenweg 28, D-04155 Leipzig)
