This website presents the disinformation ecosystem and how people are affected by it. It reveals ways to distinguish malicious messages such as conspiracy theories and propaganda. It provides individuals and organizations some possible measures to counter disinformation. The website is intended to be a one-stop toolkit that can offer civil society perspectives and mechanisms to combat disinformation.
