MozFest is a unique hybrid: part art, tech and society convening, part maker festival, and the premiere gathering for activists in diverse global movements fighting for a more humane digital world. Sustainability and Climate Change is one of several important issues that our community addresses regularly through their work and in their local neighborhoods.
“For Earth Day 2022, we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.” - Earthday.org

In celebration of Earth Day 2022, reserve some time in your schedule to read, watch, listen, and connect with the climate change movement to invest in our planet. With a free, on-demand MozFest ticket, you’ll have access to:
- GDB as a collective learning device to explore climate action | The Global Data Barometer is an effort to take stock of how and to what extent data can be effectively mobilised to address critical societal issues. One of them is Climate Action.
- Climate Migration: How Countries Use Tech for Border Security Over Human Security | Climate change is driving migration, but responsible polluting countries are using surveillance technology to not only keep migrants out, but also obfuscate the message and securitize migrants as the threat instead of the real threat of climate change.
- How can open climate action data help green recovery and accountability? | Since the pandemic began, The European Union, South Korea and the United States are some of the countries that have pledged very ambitious and robust Green Recovery plans to revive the economy, while making sure not to exploit nature again. But none of these Green Recovery Plans have taken into account transparency needed. How are all these plans going to be rolled out and how are they going to be held accountable? Open data could be the solution.
- Open Climate Now! Next steps for the intersection of open and the climate crisis | A discussion collectively and strategically about the intersection between “open” and the climate crisis. How can we support the open community in responding to the climate crisis? What can the open movement bring to climate issues? Who is doing work at this intersection already, and how can we uplift and amplify these efforts?
