Global Expansion

The Oslo Freedom Forum is now convening regional events throughout the year. In addition to our flagship event in Norway, our new Global Expansion includes OFF in Johannesburg, OFF in Taiwan, and OFF in Mexico City.

Each regional event features 10 talks by OFF speakers, a Tech Lab, an Interactive Expo, and local music and art. With generous support from the John Templeton Foundation, OFF will host these events annually through 2021, with the goal of raising the local interest and funding needed to continue an OFF presence in these countries for years to come.
