The purpose of the project is contributing to social stability of the state under the conditions of war through the cybersecurity literacy building of youth. Project activities included training and educational events on technological solutions to counter disinformation campaigns. The target audience of the project are students specializing in cybersecurity and information technologies from all over Ukraine, aged 18-25, and preference will be given to representatives of the regions of the most active hostilities.
