Planning notes
past congress review update: I located our assembly where it has been the last time.

Last year we have been in the noisy square and have been situated next to the sitting corner, after the Wau Holland Stiftung and before the glassy passage. The spot was just perfect for us and we would love to have the very same space again. We feel among friends inside the noisy square and the location at the passage and next to the sitting corner gave us a good possibility for offering self-organised sessions. Last year we just offered 5 sessions and like to extend it this time. As some sessions have been very well visited (more than 80 people), we like to use a workshop room this time for some of our sessions. Everything else was good.

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
