Tackling one the most prominent issues affecting society right now, Daniel Franklin, executive and diplomatic editor of the Economist, and Emily Evans, CEO of The Economist Educational Foundation, will be at Lansons to discuss fake news in all its guises.

In what promises to be fascinating discussion ahead of the general election, we will explore the impact of misinformation, disinformation and one-sided debates on society, and discuss what can be done.

The debate will cover the role of the media, business and government, the skills required to separate fact from fiction in a modern media landscape, as well as where responsibility lies for supporting news literacy.

Join us for a fast-paced and fascinating conversation about a topic that has implications for almost every aspect of our lives.
