  • Study Hall 209 College Street. 3rd Floor Burlington, VT, 05401 United States (map)

Presented by Mozilla Foundation
Sponsored by Burlington Telecom & Fletcher Free Library

Join Moderator Julia Vallera of the Mozilla Foundation, Mary Danko of Fletcher Free Library and Abbie Tykocki of Burlington Telecom, along with other local stakeholders in a discussion about the state of the internet and how it impacts Vermont communities.

Session participants will get an introduction to current methodologies that Mozilla Foundation uses to gauge internet health across key indicators, such as openness, inclusion, privacy, security, decentralization, and others.

We’ll explore how these issues and more affect the diverse communities in and around Burlington, Vermont. What strengths, weaknesses, and disparities do we see? What steps can we take to address gaps and vulnerabilities that foster a healthy digital civil society.
