 Environment for Romania: 
A platform for official, trustworthy information

 Solution is live 

In emergency situations, information consumption behaviors change radically. During such times, the spread of false news in online or traditional media (print media, radio, TV, etc.) is incredibly harmful and unfortunately becomes fast and widespread. With a panicking population, this can cause radical decisions and increase the level of fear and uncertainty among people. Știri Oficiale is a source of accurate information that gives the population the opportunity to be vigilant in how they access, assimilate and distribute news presented in the media. The solution is complemented by two browser extensions (Chrome and Firefox) that help people identify official sources of data and information in order to verify the content that they are viewing.

Source Code

All code written by the Code for Romania community is open-source. We aim to build, contribute to and encourage the development of Romania's code library to increase the quality of software solutions in the public space and beyond. Open source development increases the quality of the digital infrastructure built by digital actors, reduces costs by reusing code in different contexts, increases transparency, eliminates reliance on single providers and encourages the strengthening of contributor communities among specialists who can report errors or improve components and functionality.
