The World Economic Forum has identified viral online misinformation and disinformation as one of the biggest threats to society. ASEAN is also not immune to this threat. There have been instances where information was distorted to provoke violence, sow hate.
Young people are among the most vulnerable groups who are prone to radicalisation, hate speech, false news and intolerance. Based on UNESCO study, 54% of youth respondents didn’t know how to respond to hate and extremist material they encounter online. However, on a more encouraging note, 92% of youth respondents embraced the idea that media and information literacy competencies can help to empower young people to protect themselves from radical and extremist groups and counter hate speech online.
ASEAN is taking a concrete step to prevent misinformation and disinformation. In 2018, the ASEAN Ministers Responsible for Information (AMRI) adopted the Framework and Joint Statement to Minimise the Harmful Effects of Fake News. ASEAN has also launched its ASEAN Digital Literacy, which aims to promote greater cybersecurity as part of the fight against online disinformation. In addition, 2021 saw ASEAN develop a guideline of Training of Trainers programme that targets secondary school teachers, university tutors and lecturers to improve the digital information literacy of young people.
As a way to contribute to the effort, the ASEAN Foundation and Google will implement a virtual roundtable discussion that discusses topic around misinformation and disinformation in ASEAN on 20 October 2021. This event will also be utilised to announce the launching of the regional programme on combating misinformation and disinformation. This programme aims to raise awareness of the importance of media and information literacy in combating misinformation and disinformation, and build media literacy capacity of youth, teachers, parents, elderly and community leaders so that they can detect, counter and prevent online hoaxes and fake news. Additionally, a digital comic strip titled “Digital Literacy 101” will also be launched during the programme.
To make the announcement of the new programme on media and information literacy and the Digital Literacy 101 comic more impactful during the roundtable discussion, the ASEAN Foundation is planning to develop short animated videos for both announcements, or special announcement videos. The first announcement video on the new programme will display brief testimonies from programme’s stakeholders and animation explaining about the goal and interventions of the programme. The video for the digital comic will serve as call to action to invite people to download and learn from it. Additionally, to make the roundtable discussion more engaging, a series of testimony videos will also be developed.
For this purpose, we are seeking for capable video editing consultant to help develop the special announcement video on the new programme, a short teaser video on the digital comic and three additional testimony videos for the roundtable discussion.
