Globe aims to educate participants of this year’s summit about the risks of going digital and how they can become ambassadors of truth. The summit also aims to educate the youth about the characteristics of fake news, how to spot them and verify their veracity as well as inform the students about the objective behind spreading fake news, who benefits from it, how it spreads, the adverse effects of sharing false information, and most importantly, how to fight it

While Globe provides reliable and uninterrupted connectivity to its more than 80 million subscribers, it also takes on the responsibility of informing and warning people of the risks of the ever-innovating digital world.

Globe continues to conduct its Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP), a series of workshops designed to increase students’ knowledge of digital citizenship and cybersafety by taking a critical look at their online behavior and helping them develop insights into the influences of the online world and the choices they are making.
