The Atlantic Club of Bulgaria and the Office of Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Bulgaria organized a virtual discussion on „Solidarity in Crisis: The Bridge to Bliss. Information Saves, Disinformation Kills “, on 22 May 2020, 14:00 Sofia time, in the Zoom platform.
The event covered countries from 14 geographical time zones with leading practices or lessons learned in the fight against COVID-19 on 3 continents: USA, Europe, Israel, India, Taiwan and South Korea.
Leaders, officials, scientists and influencers discussed from their own perspective and knowledge the impact of disinformation on the crisis, shared the best practices in their countries and explored different long-term solutions (such as the Health Shield Europe Initiative) that could prevent future relapses of a similar crisis.
A special guest speaker was the American writer Eric Weiner – author of the world bestseller “Geography of Bliss” (as well as of “Geography of Genius”, “Geography of Wisdom” and “Man Seeks God”).
