Free Software in Education

We actively promote the use of Free Software in schools and universities as it encourages schooling of understanding over product training and upholds the scientific principle.

Already during its first general assembly, FSFE identified education as one of the most important areas for activity so young people and students would have the chance of getting in touch with knowledge instead of mere product schooling. Therefore the FSFE started a Free Software in Education working group to focus on these efforts. Today, it acts as a hub and works on monitoring the European situation. We participate in Free Software events and assist other initiatives in making the change possible.
