We have seen time and again, that when faced with repression by authoritarian regimes, seemingly ordinary individuals step up to become champions of change in their communities and in the world. While governments and multilateral organizations are often slow to react to international crises, these individuals leap into action — often at great personal risk — to protect freedom, expose corruption, and reform unjust systems.
Our theme for the 2022 Oslo Freedom Forum is Champion of Change.
It celebrates both activists, who are themselves champions, and their causes. This theme represents a strong, scalable call to action, inviting you to act and advocate on behalf of activists and in support of human rights. At the Oslo Freedom Forum, we realize that everyone has the potential to effect change — either as a champion on an individual level, or as part of a larger movement.
