Welcome to Global Fact 9, the only conference dedicated to fact-checking worldwide, organized by the International Fact-Checking Network at the Poynter Institute. 

This year’s Global Fact will take place in Oslo, Norway, for the first time in-person after two years of virtual conferences. Previous Global Fact conferences were held in cities such as London, Buenos Aires, Madrid, Rome, and Cape Town. 

This year's Global Fact will take place between 22-25, June 2022 in-person at Oslo Metropolitan University in Oslo, Norway. Virtual participation is also available.  Each day of the summit will feature seven hours of forward-thinking sessions to inspire lively discussions surrounding the important role facts play in society. 

The conference is organized by the International Fact-Checking Network at Poynter Institute in partnership with Norwegian fact-checking organization Faktisk.no; OsloMET University; the journalism training institute Institutt for Journalistikk and the foundation for investigative journalism, SKUP.

Admission is free for those interested in attending the main track sessions; however, some sessions are exclusive to International Fact-Checking Network’s verified signatory organizations. For more information on the sessions, check out various ticket/registration options.
