Save the Date! Mozilla’s Global Sprint June 1st-2nd

Join us and collaborate on open projects from around the world! Mozilla’s Global Sprint is a fun, fast-paced, two-day collaborative world-wide work event where anyone– coders, designers, writers, artists, activists, educators, students– can pitch in to build and protect the open Web!

The Global Sprint originated with the Mozilla Science Lab (you can get a glimpse of a past MSL Sprint here); this year we’re going Network-wide. Your open project is welcome, whether you’re working on web literacy curriculum, hacking on the Internet of Things, developing apps to protect user privacy online, creating new scientific software, planning local community events, or creating tools that make data open accessible to all.

Mozilla is a champion of an open, healthy, and accessible Internet for all, so this year our tracks for the Sprint are topics crtitical to Internet Health:

  1. Open Innovation
  2. Digital Inclusion
  3. Privacy + Security
  4. Decentralization
  5. Web Literacy

At the Science Lab we’re especially excited to participate in this year’s Sprint because it’s a tradition for us, to galvanize activity around open science projects and support open research on the web, and we’re so please to launch the event with the rest of Mozilla this year!

Get involved!
