Organizações nossas associadas
A Free Software Foundation Europe está a dar às pessoas a capacidade de controlarem a tecnologia. Este é um objectivo que nenhuma organização consegue alcançar sozinha, mas há muitos grupos que estão a trabalhar para este objectivo com sucesso. Alguns ajudam pessoas e organizações a compreender como contribui o Software Livre para a liberdade, a transparência e a auto-determinação. Outros reforçam os direitos dos utilizadores abolindo barreiras à adopção de Software Livre. Outros, ainda, focalizam-se em encorajar as pessoas a usarem e desenvolverem Software Livre.
O foco ou o estatuto legal de cada grupo não são importantes; acreditamos que o importante é juntar forças e trabalhar em conjunto para que alcancemos os nossos objectivos comuns. Juntamente com as nosas organizações associadas, queremos mostrar que somos um movimento forte. Trocamos ideias, coordenamos esforços, motivamo-nos mutuamente e procuramos oportunidades para trabalharmos em conjunto em projectos específicos.
Se o seu grupo considera tornar-se numa organização nossa associada, entre em contacto conosco.Às empresas que queiram demonstrar apoio ao alcançar dos nossos objectivos, recomendamos que se tornem doadores à FSFE ou a uma das organizações nossas associadas:
