Data Story

There is reliable data and information published by various trusted organisations. At the same time, there is tons of misinformation and disinformation being shared on social media. The bad stuff, unfortunately, ends up being more accessible, therefore more shared and ultimately more consumed. We present a model built around an accessible channel to trusted information. This makes it fun and convenient to consume the right stuff.
