The DPGA and UNDP are collaborating to discover and promote open-source solutions and concepts that can help tackle the urgent global challenge of information pollution. They will showcase this at the Nobel Prize Summit “Truth, Trust and Hope,” hosted by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the Nobel Foundation. Submissions are now being accepted.

This is particularly true when it comes to online information pollution, which has grown to be a major cause of distrust and obfuscation, blurring the lines between malicious intent, opinions, and reality.
