The age of information — how to create a healthy public space?
Perhaps no one will have any doubt if we say that we are living in times of over-information — we get it from a variety of sources, and its flow almost never stops. Social media, news portals, podcasts and classical texts printed in paper format — all of this is accompanies and shapes our world’s vision, opinions and views. Unfortunately, what predominates in the information space is far from always meeting the criteria of truth and objectivity, and information is often used for manipulative purposes. Critical thinking skills need to be developed in order to resist these threats and reap the benefits of the digital information age. How can we recognise and counter information threats? Why is it important to build a healthy relationship between people in the public sphere? These issues — and not only — will be discussed in the discussion “Information Age — How to Create a Healthy Public Space?” in which: Vladimiras Laučius, publicist, senior political analyst at the Centre for Eastern European Studies; — Dalia Bankauskaitė, associate professor at Vilnius University partnership and partner of the European Centre for Political Analysis (CEPA); The event is moderated by Justinas Kulys, Project Manager of Eastern Europe Studies Centre.
