Description The Free Software Foundation Europe is dedicated to spread software freedom as one way into a Free Society. We do lobbying & public relations and we offer legal advice and interest representation of and for every Free Software project. This assembly is hosted for and by our members, friends and supporters to offer a common space to discuss, meet, hack and organise. Let's put the hacking back into politics!

Orga contact
Brings We bring a lot of merchandise to refinance our costs. A lot means around 6 big packing cases and a little bit of space to handle them ("I like to have a noCloud shirt in green in size XL" and so). We will also bring banner and a lot of promotion material. (see here from last year: year we wanted to bring a small light because it was often kind of dark in our assembly.

What makes our assembly interesting? We bring together a pan-European community of people interested in the political and societal aspects of Free Software. For our community, CCC and Fosdem are nowadays the biggest come-togethers and important for strategic planning involving other communities. We are an integral part of the Noisy Square and we have good experience at the location to the door and part of the "hacker area". We already started to contact the other organisations from the Noisy Square.

We will have self-organized sessions. These will be meetings at our assembly, Free Software sing-along, GNU/Burgers and other interesting stuff - and we run a call for sessions for talks and workshops:

Uses money yes we handle money

Planning notes We are part of the noisy square, we run our assembly since 2013 in Hamburg and we would simply love to have the same place again, so our community and everyone from the outside interested has an easy time to find us.

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
