Top luminaries, grassroots activists, creative technologists, and interested consumers from around the world gather to share their insights, reflections, and ideas at MozFest. These conversations and collaborations are too good to not share on-demand, all year long.

MozFest House: Amsterdam 2023

In June 2023, MozFest House: Amsterdam harnessed our collective power to better our digital landscape, build transformative systems, and sustain momentum within our community towards positive human and digital rights progress.

Keynote by Frances Haugen

The keynote at MozFest House Amsterdam featured Frances Haugen, the Facebook whistleblower who further exposed the platform's ability to incite hatred, spread misinformation, and foment political unrest.

Frances walked us through historical examples of social change, and emphasized how social and collective change starts at an individual level. Following the keynote, we had a moderated conversation between Mark Surman, President of the Mozilla Foundation and Frances. The conversation touched on themes like journalism, democracy, and social media content moderation.
