2018 Oslo Freedom Forum in Taiwan
Taipei, Taiwan November 10, 2018
The Oslo Freedom Forum (OFF) is a thriving global community of people united by the common vision of making the world a more peaceful, prosperous, and free place. OFF brings together leaders in advocacy, business, technology, policy, philanthropy, media, academia, and arts to share their stories and brainstorm ways to expand freedom and unleash human potential across the globe. OFF has evolved from an annual flagship event in Oslo to include satellite events around the world including New York, Johannesburg, Mexico City, and now, Taiwan.
Speakers at the first-ever Oslo Freedom Forum in Taiwan include Cambodian Cambodian human rights activist and exiled opposition politician Mu Sochua, North Korean defector and activist Ji Seong-ho, Vietnamese pop star and political activist Mai Khoi, Egyptian actor, model, and LGBT rights activist Omar Sharif Jr., China bureau chief and Asia correspondent for BuzzFeed News Megha Rajagopalan, Eritrean free speech activist Vanessa Berhe, Sarawak-born investigative journalist and founder of the Sarawak Report Clare Rewcastle-Brown, and Russian democracy activist and coordinator of Open Russia Vladimir Kara-Murza. More speakers will be announced soon.
Programming will also include a Tech Lab and Interactive Expo, art exhibits, networking breaks, musical performances, and more.
The 2018 Oslo Freedom Forum in Taiwan is made possible through the generous support of the John Templeton Foundation.
