About the event

The 2022 edition of Freedom Games is coming! The 9th edition of the remarkable forum of ideas is to be held on October 14-16 in Poland. The ELF HUB at the event will once again be an exclusive part of the Freedom Games. The leading theme of this year’s forum is “Green Independence”.  The theme of the edition is a response to the growing challenges posed not only by climate change, but also the Russian aggression in Ukraine and its consequences for the whole region.
