The war in Ukraine shows that intense fighting takes place not only in the state's cities, fields, airspace or waters, but also in cyber and information spaces. As the Kremlin regime attempts to sow fear and manipulate the world's perception of this invasion, it is more important today than ever to remain vigilant and be able to identify and counter disinformation and its spread. After all, civil resistance is the foundation of state security and defense. 

Taking into account the recent increase in information attacks directed against Lithuania and its citizens, manifestations of disinformation in the cyber and information space, VšĮ "Vilniaus jaunimos informasi ir savanorystės centras" is starting to implement the project "Critical thinking and safe use of media" on a national scale. The main goal of the project is to strengthen young people's ability to evaluate information and their resistance to misinformation and fake news in the media. 

In order to achieve this overall result, we have assembled a team of highly experienced experts in communication and journalism, politics and history, publicists, who, looking at the challenge of disinformation and fake news from various perspectives, will provide the participants of the project activities with significant knowledge about false information, the threat it poses and the damage it causes to society. for the state, as well as develop the ability to critically assess information and recognize disinformation, fake news in various media.
