The Right to Truth & Trust in an Age of #Misinfo

Mar 15, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

Disinformation is a global problem, and it prevents other problems from being solved. We need to think big and look ahead to the world we want in 2050. But the platforms have only offered patches. Politicians haven’t acted — they often take advantage of the situation.

We are calling for an International Panel on the Information Environment (IPIE) — strong, independent, and credible. It would do what the IPCC did to make the environmental crisis a global issue, providing recommendations, based on evidence, for transparent standards for achieving a healthy global information environment. With diverse expert voices and international thought leaders, this panel will explore the importance and practicalities of creating an IPIE and building that future.
