What we do

The social media revolution has contributed towards blurring the lines between fact and fiction and disinformation campaigns targeting new innovations have become more aggressive. In fact, the World Economic Forum has declared misinformation a global catastrophe. Widespread falsehoods on scientific innovations delay decision making and fosters mistrust on important innovations. This platform aims to address misinformation on scientific issues in a timely manner, contributing towards building public trust. Our intervention has been informed by over 30 years of lessons learnt in communicating about genetically modified crops.

Don't amplify misinformation, clarify with our experts.
