The Power of Information at a Time of Crisis
Whilst COVID-19 rapidly spreads across the globe, misinformation is filling up millions of feeds and web pages. A dangerous trend that is also often seen in conflicts. Accurate information informs decisions and creates a space for learning. So, how can we break through the deafening noise of fake news and the overload of information? How can readily available information empower youth and women to create peace in their societies?
To find out, Natalie of GPPAC sat down with peace researcher Dr. Suba Chandran, a Professor and Dean at the National Institute of Advanced Studies in Bangalore for the Peace Corner podcast. He shares his dream and journey towards giving youth the power to share stories on peace and conflict, and shape the society they deserve.
