Erik Albers

Community / Outreach / Campaigns

Erik is FSFE's internal and external community builder. He reaches out to new audiences and supports FSFE's friends and sustaining members individually or inside various groups over Europe to engage for Free Software.

Erik runs Document Freedom Day, FSFE`s global campaign about Open Standards, and "Ask your Candidates", FSFE's Free Software campaigns during democratic elections. Also FSFE's outreach and promotion material section is build up and kept running by Erik.

Erik is a humanist, interested in copyright and -left, usage rights and Digital Restrictions Management. In particular, Erik is attracted by the big picture of Free Culture and Free Knowledge on top of Free Software and its changes to our social and economic organisation.
