Media - May 16
Nearly one-third of young people in Switzerland have little to no interest in the news. Various studies show that daily world events are of secondary importance to them. They rarely use information sources and thus develop limited literacy in dealing with and processing news, which makes them more susceptible/vulnerable to misinformation. So, how can we examine the relationship between the younger generation and information today? Helping us with the answer is Eleonora Benecchi, lecturer-researcher at USI Faculty of Communication, Culture and Society. She collaborated in the study Reaching Swiss Digital Natives with News, conducted by Università della Svizzera italiana with the Universities of Zurich and Lausanne.
