The couple is partnering with the UCLA Center for Critical Internet Inquiry (C2i2), Color Of Change and URL Media.

They are also investing in “new and exciting work” at Cortico’s Local Voices Network, a collaboration with MIT’s Center for Constructive Communication.

Meghan and Harry said they are looking to create “an online community rooted in equity, safety, participation, and belonging”, saying they “don’t tryst basic information”.

In a statement from their organisation Archewell, they said: “In a relatively short period of time, the digital age has rewritten how we experience everyday life.

“In many ways, technology has connected us, made our lives more productive, and allowed people in every part of the world to organize for change and support communities in need.

“Yet this age has also ushered in significant consequences.

“We don’t trust basic information, the safety and health of our kids are at risk, civil rights and human rights are being threatened, and marginalized communities are being targeted by a barrage of hate and vitriol.

“Technology itself has far outpaced our ability to reckon with its effects, and this is only going to magnify as we enter a new generation of emerging technologies.

“Many of the underlying societal issues created by technology remain unaddressed.”
