Faktabaari Forum is the prime forum to support Faktabaari’s mission to serve fact-based public debate and digital information literacy development. This special year we celebrate Faktabaari’s anniversary with focus on sustainability and transatlantic solutions. We aim to defend democracy in the digital information ecosystem during the 2024 election year with the theme STOP THINK and CHECK.

Our focus remains on AI and social media - we STOP THINK and CHECK - what has worked and will work in practice for informed citizens in Finland, Nordics, Europe and the US. We will be joined with a keynote from our US partner Center for an Informed Public Co-Founder with greetings from our NORDIS colleagues and EDMO partners in view of European and US elections 2024 and beyond. We share Faktabaari highlights e.g. from 10 elections covered and in pioneering Digital Infomation Literacy and modern fact-checking in Finland and beyond. Faktabaari has organized Forum’s on International Fact-Checking Day since 2015 as it coincides its anniversary.
