Mozilla is participating in Green Festival in San Francisco on Nov. 14-16 (Friday afternoon through Sunday evening). Green Festival is the largest green conference in the U.S. and looks at clean technology, green building, socially responsible investing, eco-fashion, renewable energy, green careers and green collar jobs, natural foods, media and eco-tourism and more. The conference will also host a 3-day Green Youth Summit that will focus on the arts and community activism. Over 45,000 people will be attending.
At the conference, Mozilla will aim to expose Firefox and the Mozilla organization to a new set of end-users that we refer to as "conscious consumers" using our 100% Organic Software message. We'll host a booth, have a speaker (Asa Doltzler) and participate in the Green Web Pavilion along with the ACCRC (Alameda County Computer Resource Center).
Mozilla will be sponsoring the wireless, and also provide refurbished computers for the Green Web Pavillion in conjunction with ACCRC.

Our favorite storyteller will be talking at Green Festival on Sunday at noon! Asa will cover the history of the Mozilla project, and how a small community of activists is building an inclusive Internet and preserving and advancing the non-commercial online spaces which are critical tools in today's sustainability movement.
As previously said, we're partnering with ACCRC to provide refurbished computers (10) at the Green Web Pavillion. The organization saves old hardware from landfills and gets it in the hands of local schools.

We need your help!
In order to make it a successful event, we will definitely need your help! Green Festival is a great opportunity to introduce Mozilla to people who may not be aware of our amazing browser and organization. We will have a booth and we would love if you could come help out during those 3 days (we're going to have 2h or 1 1/2h shifts available).
We'd love community members and Mozilla friends to help out as well. We want a broad representation! We will be conducting a small survey at the booth.
Additionally, we need one person to field Firefox questions at the Green Web Pavilion where there will be one computer dedicated just to us! The hours are the same as the booth hours.
If interested in helping out, please put your name below -- there is no restriction to how many shifts one can attend!
