Zugang zu verlässlichen Informationen

In the webinar of the Bündnis 90/Die Grünen Bundestagsfraktion, Lisa Merten will give a keynote speech starting at 5 p.m. Together with Tabea Rößner and Margit Stumpp, she will discuss the access to reliable information and quality media in the digital space. The registration is possible until 24 June!

In uncertain times, people have a greater need for reliable and carefully researched information. We can see this especially now during the Corona Pandemic in rising viewer ratings and subscription numbers. At the same time, more fake news and conspiracy theories are buzzing around than ever before - especially on the Internet. The WHO even speaks of a "massive infodemia."

Users have access to an infinite amount of information in the digital space and are spoilt for choice between countless providers. The information seeker accesses some information services independently or searches for them, and others come to the users' homes via social media platforms or messenger services. The offers on the Internet are thus both a solution and part of the problem of "infodemia." Therefore, we want to find out which offers have what kind of reach and how this relates to the reliability of the information offered. We also want to understand who uses which offers and who lives in so-called news deserts - consciously or unconsciously.

Tabea Rößner (net-political spokeswoman of the Green parliamentary group) and Margit Stumpp (media-political spokeswoman) would like to discuss with experts and you in a 60-minute after-work format, live on the net, how we can contribute politically to guarantee an easy access to reliable information on the Internet.

We are looking forward to your questions: either in advance or during the webinar via Twitter and Facebook: #digitalvscorona
