Shared Realities Learning Programme

Increase your understanding of how to strengthen social cohesion and resilience in an age of information disorder. Join the Shared Realities Learning Programme. 

Programme overview

Are you concerned about how mis- and dis-information are affecting society? Would you like to better understand how to create more equitable, inclusive, peaceful societies and better information environments? 

Apply to join the Shared Realities Learning Programme, which will

  • Illuminate the relationship between mis- and dis-information and cohesive societies,
  • Explore how these dynamics play out in different country contexts, and 
  • Identify key opportunities for improving these dynamics both at the country and global level

The Spring 2023 edition of the Shared Realities Learning Learning Programme is offered to participants in Tunisia, Jordan and Lebanon. 

The 11-session programme will take place online from March 8 to May 11, 2023. 

Through a series of interactive workshops of 2.5 hours, you will get access to global experts on  information and social cohesion. Through these sessions you will gain new ideas and deeper understanding of these topics to support you in addressing these challenging issues. You will also connect, engage with, and learn from your peers to understand how these global challenges play out in your context, and to identify areas for possible solutions. 

Programme Format 

This programme will be offered on Zoom through 2.5 hour-sessions:

  • An on-boarding session (all participants)
  • 5 interactive sessions highlighting the leading edge thinking on the topics from around the world (all participants)
  • 4 hands-on collaboration sessions, where participants from the same country engage together on the topic in their country context (each country separately)  
  • 1 session to share insights from across the three countries (all participants) 

Programme Outcomes

At the end of the programme participants will have gained new perspectives and insight about the global drivers and dynamics of: 

  • Social cohesion
  • Information systems
  • Technology

Participants will be part of producing a systems analysis of how the global dynamics of social cohesion and mis- and dis-information could play out in their country’s context, and identifying possible drivers of improved systems.

  • Traditional and social media workers and influencers
