ICCS 2022 in Singapore – Integreat On Board
From 6.9.2022 to 8.9.2022 the ICCS 2022 took place in Singapore. We had the opportunity to be there with Integreat. During the event, several topics were discussed by experts from around the globe. The ICCS is an event for interreligious and multicultural dialogue. On the initiative of the President of Singapore, Halimah Yacob, the 2019 conference was held in Singapore for the first time.
Integreat-CFO Fritjof Knier on the topic of „Hate & Conspirancy Online“
Our CFO Fritjof Knier talked about how Integreat counters disinformation and conspiracy theories during the thematic block “Hate & Conspiracy Online”. At the beginning of his speech, Fritjof briefly described the history of Integreat and why it can also make sense as a start-up to act according to the motto “Think small”. Afterwards, he explained how Integreat counteracts conspiracy theories. It is important to provide refugees and immigrants with trustworthy information in their own language. He said this was particularly evident with the Corona pandemic and the situation in Ukraine. After the presentations, Fritjof still answered the questions of the attendees and gave further in-depth insights.
For those interested, the complete speech by Fritjof and the subsequent exchange are available on YouTube.
Summary of the event
Fritjof Knier returned from Singapore with an all-around positive experience and many new impressions and impulses in his luggage. We would like to thank the organizers of the event for the invitation. In addition to the exciting presentations, the exchange with experts from all over the world was particularly enriching, and Integreat can only continue to grow as a result.
