Supporting Digital Literacy and Quality Journalism, Garudafood Gives 100 Account Subscriptions to for Diponegoro University

Semarang, 21 October 2021 - Digital literacy refers to the knowledge and skills to use digital media, communication tools, or networks in finding, evaluating, using, creating and utilizing information in a sound, wise, intelligent, careful, accurate, and law-abiding manner to foster communication and interaction in daily life.

Ferry Haryanto as the Director of Garudafood gave 100 annual account subscriptions to for Diponegoro University Semarang during the Garudafood’s Webinar Supporting Digital Literacy and Quality Journalism on Thursday, 21 October 2021.

In the ceremony, account subscriptions were symbolically given by Ferry Haryanto to Prof. Dr. Yos Johan Utama, S.H.,M.Hum Rector of Diponegoro University Semarang. Through this program, Garudafood hopes to assist lecturers in transferring knowledge to students from credible sources and accurate information or data.

On that occasion, a digital literacy discussion was also held with the topic "Abundant Information, Filtering Hoaxes, and Fake News" which was brought by Haryo Damardono (Vice Managing Editor of Harian Kompas). The discussion reminded us about the role of the private sector, universities, and the media in using social media more wisely.

Garudafood Supports Quality Journalism is one of Garudafood's CSR programs through collaboration with Kompas.Id by giving 1,000 annual account subscriptions to for lecturers or students in 6 universities as well as internal employees of the Garudafood Group. The ceremonial handover of this assistance will be done through 6 webinars, which will be held on a weekly basis in October - November 2021 at each University.
