Kateřina Krivankova is doing a Masters degree in Political Science (specialization in political marketing and psychology) at Masaryk University, Czech Republic. She is a co-founder, event manager and from December 2018 also director of the student project Zvol si info. The project strives to encourage critical thinking and increase media literacy amongst Czech and Slovak youth, which is particularly targeted by disinformation. To reach this objective, a simple, user-friendly toolkit called Surfer’s Guide to the Internet has been created, which teaches people how to distinguish between facts and opinion, hoax or fake news in five simple steps. So far, the project has reached almost 5,000 students, organized more than 80 lectures, won the Gratias Tibi Award and published a book.
