Brazil 2016


Brazil is the biggest community in Latin America, and one of our 10 focus countries. Is difficult that a great number of Brazilian community members participate on big Mozilla’s events at the same time, so we think is a great place to begin the work on Regional Institutes.

At the same time is a community with several layers that don’t always integrate well. There are community members that participate in the community for the last 10 years, and new ones with lots of new ideas. But they are struggling to organize.


  • Clear participation plans for our two major initiatives (Campus Campaign and Connected Devices)
  • All the participants agree on a communication process and channel
  • Participants report having learned at the event and are motivated to work on the initiatives
  • There is an improvement in the health in the Brazilian community. This will be measure with before and after surveys
