2022 Oslo Freedom Forum

May 23 @ 10:00 am May 25 @ 7:00 pm CEST

The Oslo Freedom Forum is a global human rights conference that unites diverse communities to make the world more peaceful and free.

Every year, the Oslo Freedom Forum (OFF) features talks from inspiring activists, philanthropists, journalists, artists, entrepreneurs, and world leaders, all of whom come together for an immersive experience focused on making the world more peaceful, prosperous, and free. At OFF, you have the opportunity to connect with our community and contribute to the global movement against tyranny.

We are very excited to be returning to our home, Oslo, this year. At the 14th annual Oslo Freedom Forum, you will hear talks from some of the world’s bravest human rights defenders in the magnificent Oslo Concert Hall; engage with interactive art installations and live music performances; explore the struggle for freedom through panel discussions and workshops with thought leaders from around the world; discover exciting initiatives at the intersection of innovation, freedom, and technology; and collaborate with our diverse community to protect democracy where it is most at risk.
