Hey Everyone, Welcome to 30 Days, 30 Ways 2020! Its Eric from the 30 Days Gang, here to get this year’s challenge started. Today we kick off our 11th year of this challenge, and well, like many things this year, COVID-19 has impacted this challenge. The group that normally brings this challenge together have actively been involved with the COVID-19 response in our community since back in March. Some of the things we normally did leading up to this challenge, just didn’t happen this year, as well as some of the partnerships. That said… We felt we still wanted to bring this challenge to light.. even if we re-shared a few of our challenges from previous years, as well as some new ones in light of COVID-19. So Let’s get started…
In today’s world information can feel like a fire hose, hitting us hard from every angle with different and conflicting messages. The media seems, like no matter which network has their own spin on what used to be just the facts. Conspiracy theories and so called Subject Matter Experts are everywhere.
DAY 1 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts So today we want to ask… How do you sift through all of this media noise to find the accurate information? How do you make sure you are getting a well rounded version of the truth
Level Up: 5 pts For today’s level up… we want you to share your tips and tricks of finding verified sources. Where do you go to find the details.. How to you make sure what you see on Social Media or even in the news is accurate? This would also be a good time to connect with your local emergency manager or public health agency.. and let them know you are taking the 30 Days Challenge.
