Taking Action Against Truth Decay

RAND recently launched a creative collaboration with two YouTube content creators—Neil Halloran and Minute Earth—to explore Truth Decay and help individuals understand actions they can take to counter it. The project is part of RAND's NextGen Initiative, which seeks to deepen younger generations' understanding of important policy issues and galvanize them to act.

Using their own voices, perspectives, and style, the storytellers examine the concept of Truth Decay. Their videos provide tips for people to use when digesting news, sharing information over social media, or talking to family and friends.
