A team of students participated in a P2P competition titled Challenging Extremism, organised by the US State Department. The Vesalius College team created ‘Newsworthy,’  under guidance of Prof. Serge Stroobants. The campaign’s goal ‘is to challenge extremism by providing source verified news articles, training information on source verification and outreach programmes designed to teach source verification skills to youth.’ (full statement on the Newsworthy website, here)

The Newsworthy campaign finally took the second place prize out of the 45 participating universities!
