Flatten The Curve Summit

From the Organizers:

The online “Flatten The Curve Summit” will take place on April 21-23, 2020. The Summit will bring together leading experts in public health, law, cyber conflict, climate change, collaboration, and digital self-defense. This three-day remote Summit will showcase twenty-one speakers in one-hour remote sessions. Speakers will share empowering knowledge, strategies, and tools. Attendees will learn how to strengthen their communities, cope with change, and stem the tide of the next crisis.

Sessions will feature speakers from Yale University, Oxford University, McGill University, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the Free Software Foundation, and other leading research non-profit, entrepreneurial, and civic organizations. Attendees will gain a variety of new skills while staying home, social distancing, and doing their part to “flatten the curve” of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Summit’s innovative funding model contributes directly to public health and digital rights, with 10% of proceeds donated to non-profits GNU Health and Fight for the Future. Tickets are “Pay What You Can” with a suggested contribution of $25 USD
