be media smart

ℹ️ As a community organisation and broadcaster, we have been asked to help provide trustworthy and up-to-date advice and information on Covid-19.

Media Literacy Ireland are running the Be Media Smart Campaign again this year and now more than ever this campaign is needed.

The Be Media Smart campaign was developed by Media Literacy Ireland and is supported by a range of organisations across Ireland to help people tell the difference between reliable and accurate information and or deliberately false or misleading information.

Be Media Smart say :

We all have a part to play in fighting COVID19. In addition to the recommendations from the HSE about washing hands, maintaining physical distance and respiratory etiquette, there are also things we can do to counter misinformation circulating in relation to COVID19. Make sure to use official sources for COVID19 information (HSEWHOthe Department of Health) and please Be Media Smart and Stop, Think and Check all other COVID19 information.

Together, (apart) we can do our bit to help the fight against COVID19.
