SMILES is a media literacy project that is all about helping young people learn how to combat fake information.

SMILES brings together partners in the Netherlands, Spain and Belgium who work in libraries, media literacy organisations and research institutes to develop and test an innovative approach to combating the spread of disinformation.

The SMILES team will test innovative educational approaches in the form of fake news interventions in secondary schools organised by school teachers and librarians, and to monitor their effectiveness.
