AGE members and all those interested are invited to join four online interactive workshops and learn some useful tools for facing misinformation in internet and social media through intergenerational cooperation. These workshops are organized by AGE Platform Europe as part of the European project DIGITOL. 

DIGITOL is aimed at combatting the effects and the spread of fake news by developing older persons' digital literacy and promoting EU common values among older citizens. DIGITOL used innovative intergenerational educational practices (digital academy and training program) and engaged older adults in non-formal education and co-created training opportunities.
