Movement Building

Building across movements calls for trust and allyship. It orients the work towards Trustworthy AI and internet health. It requires building an enduring practice, a deep commitment towards shared goals, and a desire to see change on a systematic scale.

At least 145 countries from around the world have been represented by the tens of thousands of participants who have taken part in MozFest over the past 12 years.

MozFest 2023 Spaces

Think of Spaces at MozFest as mini-festivals. Within each Space, participants can find everything they need: interactive, community-led sessions, inspiring talks, art installations, lots of coffee, and community.

Allies in Practice

Along the fringes lie issues regarding Trustworthy AI and a healthy internet that need to become part of the core: To visualize the intersectional nature of inequity. To root technology in the historical context from which it emerges. To achieve transparency in power structures. To change biased systems. To build collective power. To achieve Trustworthy AI, together.

At MozFest 2023, the fringe becomes the core. This Space houses long term comrades across the internet health movement to collaborate, build, achieve, and interrogate. We are also building new allyships with organizations, coalitions, builders, artists, activists, journalists, and social movements who are committed to reshaping the future of our digital world.

MoZone

The MoZone Space brings together people and projects connected to the wide constellation of Mozilla’s work, with a focus on Trustworthy AI. As Mozilla celebrates 25 years of building a better internet, join staff, fellows, alumni, and partners as we imagine the next quarter century together.

Together, we can protect our communities from the harm AI is causing, and build tech that will put humanity and public good at the forefront to effect positive change. We will cross-pollinate our work and movements, collaborate toward collective action, and imagine new realities!
