The workshops will be run as a series of seminars during which the participants will take a closer look at the most common narratives built around particular topics, environments and organizations, selected techniques of disinformation to shape their negative image and possible strategies for dealing with it. The work will be based on analysis of real-life cases and searching for solutions to real problems.
