Freedom Marathon


On September 15th, for the International Day of Democracy, we will hold the very 1st Freedom Marathon, which will last a full day! Yes, a full day: get caffeinated and ready to change the world.

Why? 2020 has seen widespread attacks across the globe on freedom, with governments cracking down on dissent in the midst of the pandemic. Now more than ever, it is fundamental to protect and promote democracy. This event will start a Wave of Freedom to wipe out authoritarianism.

How? Throughout the event, we will bring together freedom-fighters veterans and those at the frontline of the struggles for democracy across the world today. This marathon will not only see high-level panels: the audience will be able to brainstorm with all speakers and participants and connect with one another. 

Who? Speakers include Audrey Tang (Digital Minister of Taiwan), Julie Ward (former British Member of the European Parliament), Majed Abusalama (award-winning journalist and human rights defender from Palestine),  Tashi Phuntsok (Representative of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Central Tibetan Administration to the EU)  and many other inspiring leaders!
