Hope in Action: Open-Source Innovations for Information Integrity
The Digital Public Goods Alliance (DPGA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are deeply concerned about the impact of information pollution, especially in fragile or conflict-prone contexts. That’s why, in February of this year, we launched a global call with the goal of discovering and highlighting innovative open-source solutions that can help promote information integrity. This initiative is in support of the Nobel Prize Summit, “Truth, Trust and Hope”. The call received an incredible response from individuals and organisations worldwide, with 99 technologists, innovators, and change-makers from diverse backgrounds and sectors submitting their open-source solutions and concepts. Today, we are excited to share the 9 solutions that have been selected based on their innovative approaches. Collectively, they are dedicated to fostering a more trustworthy digital experience, ensuring transparency and accountability, mitigating the role of disinformation in conflicts, and providing better access to reliable information.
