Mozilla Festival 2021 (March 8th – 19th, 2021)

Funders Circle: Greening the Internet and Climate Justice
2021-03-09, 19:15–20:15, Zoom Room 5B

This session is designed for funders who interested in the intersection of digital rights, internet health, climate change and environmental justice. We will discuss each other's analysis of the issues, approaches and promising areas of work. We will also focus on upskilling one another and growing a more coherent and effective funding strategies towards a sustainable and just internet for all.

These discussions build on a workshop conducted around bridging digital rights and environmental groups in Europe, an analysis on how to influence European funding and legislative processes, and interviews with funders in this emerging field.


How will you deal with varying numbers of participants in your session?

More breakout groups if more participants come.

What is the goal and/or outcome of your session?

A shared sense of an emerging field of sustainable internet and climate justice and pathways to effectively fund it.

We're hoping that many efforts and discussions will continue after Mozfest. Share any ideas you already have for how to continue the work from your session.

This work will continue through our funder relationships and follow-on discussions and the creation of open resources.
