Oslo Freedom Forum

May 23-25, 2022

Every year, champions of human rights bring their stories to the Oslo Freedom Forum stage to shed light on the struggle for freedom around the world.

Our theme for the 2022 Oslo Freedom Forum, CHAMPION OF CHANGE, celebrates both activists, who are themselves champions, and their causes. This theme represents a strong, scalable call to action, inviting you to act and advocate on behalf of activists and in support of human rights. At the Oslo Freedom Forum, we realize that everyone has the potential to effect change — either as a champion on an individual level, or as part of a larger movement.

Join us at the 2022 Oslo Freedom Forum, May 23-25 in Oslo, Norway for a unique experience that will remain with you for years to come. At the Oslo Konserthus, you’ll listen to talks that will expose you to an unparalleled breadth of human rights issues, pro-democracy causes, and inspiring stories of nobility and triumph against monumental odds.

Session Speakers 


Our interactive programming will feature panel discussions, deep dives, fireside chats, and workshops in the afternoons of May 23, 24 and 25. Our engaging speakers will cover and debate the most pressing issues facing our world today which we have divided into four thematic areas, each one offering a different perspective on this year’s overall theme, Champion of Change.

Creativity, Resilience, & Movements 


More details about the speakers and overall program will be released weekly on our Twitter and Instagram.

The Oslo Freedom Forum is a program of the Human Rights Foundation and is made possible in part thanks to the ongoing generous support of sponsors such as the Sergey Brin Family Foundation, the John Templeton Foundation, the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Twitter, the City of Oslo, Kavli Trust, Unlikely Collaborators, Core Scientific, The Freedom Fund, Kavlifondet, Jigsaw, and Amazon.

At this gathering, no one cares whether the tyranny is red or black. All they care about is that tyranny be opposed and defeated, and that freedom prevails.
