Fake news divides, Christmas connects us
In the 6th year of our traditional international campaign, this exciting project brings together shared joy of Christmas and young people’s creativity, while raising awareness against disinformation, hate speech and fake news, and support our local and international educational programs to develop media competences against these dividing factors.

Reconnect against hate, disinformation, and division
Social media brings us closer than ever, but also divides us more and more. Online communication is here to stay, but we can make hate, disinformation, intolerance and division go away.
Special traditional moments, such as Christmas, have the power to bring us together in a way that no online communication platform was able to do so far. On Christmas we are more open to listen, connect, engage and show our care towards others. Thus, we reconnect through the values we share.
Share the Christmas joy for empowering our media literacy programs
People from Norway and all over the world, people like you... share Christmas messages with strangers, friends or family, and empower with care our media literacy programs for young people.
Since 2013, we involved in our media literacy education programs over 1,500 young people from Norway and more than 10 European countries. The young people developed their digital, media, information and communication skills, learned and tried out the basics of journalism and visual communication, and became aware of the dangers of fake news, disinformation and hate speech.
The values that connect us all
Together, we raise awareness and support media literacy educational programs for young people. We help them to develop their digital, media, information and communication skills and empower them to fight disinformation, fake news, and online hate speech.
We come together and engage in meaningful interactions with people from different cultures, countries, traditions, etc. Each and everyone is valued and accepted for who we are, and encouraged to participate and connect, by sharing messages of joy and warmth.
We aim to make everyone more open to listen, connect, engage and show their care towards others. Together, we share and promote the values that make our communities democratic, inclusive, safe and prosperous for everyone.
