The FSFE's assembly is part of the Cluster about:freedom. Our assembly is hosted for and by our members, friends and supporters to offer a common space to discuss, meet, hack and organise. If you like to hang out with some friendly Free Software geeks this is a good place to be. All creatures welcome!

Our Mission

Free Software Foundation Europe is a charity that empowers users to control technology.

Software is deeply involved in all aspects of our lives. It is important that this technology empowers rather than restricts us. Free Software gives everybody the rights to use, understand, adapt and share software. These rights help support other fundamental rights like freedom of speech, freedom of press and privacy.

Free Software Foundation Europe:

  • helps individuals and organisations to understand how Free Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination.
  • enhances users' rights by abolishing barriers to Free Software adoption.
  • Encourages people to use and develop Free Software.
  • Provides resources to enable everyone to further promote Free Software in Europe
