The Internet Freedom Festival
Joining Forces to Fight Censorship and Surveillance
6 - 10 March 2017 | Valencia, Spain
The Internet Freedom Festival nurtures collective efforts which, through diversity, inclusivity, and collaboration, support online freedom of expression, protection from digital threats, and expanded access to online spaces. Each year, the IFF brings together those who defend digital rights around the world – journalists, activists, technologists, policy advocates, digital safety trainers, and designers – in support of the following core goals:
- Create an inclusive space and cultivate an atmosphere of trust for the Internet Freedom Community to pool resources, share knowledge, and network.
- Increase the diversity of the Internet Freedom community by engaging perspectives from a variety of backgrounds brought by underrepresented groups.
- Collectively improve the services, strategies, and tools offered to the most vulnerable individuals on the frontlines by mapping censorship, surveillance and access obstacles faced in different regions in the world.
