The Fellowship is the primary way people can identify with and support the Free Software Foundation Europe. It provides collaborative tools for supporters to describe what they are doing and interact with each other. The Fellowship is a society for people who want to help the Free Software movement grow.
By completing this forms, you join the Fellowship of FSFE and show that you care about the social and political aspects of Free Software. You help FSFE by increasing its financial independence and its political weight.
Active Fellowship groups are emerging in more and more European cities. These groups allow Fellows from an area to meet and get to know one another. Groups undertake activities ranging from a comfortable beer to running public awareness events.
As a Fellow, you get:
- An @fsfe.org mail forwarding alias, a visible sign of your affiliation to Free Software Foundation Europe.
- A personal login to the Fellowship website, which includes a blogging platform and a wiki.
- Access to our instant messaging system, where you can meet other Fellows and exchange experiences.
- A personalised OpenPGP smart card (version 2), putting you at the forefront of those who are aware of privacy issues, security and digital self-determination.
Decide for yourself!
As a Fellow, you decide how involved you want to get: from simple (and much appreciated) financial support, over contributing to discussions online and at Fellowship meetings, to becoming an elected representative of the Fellowship on FSFE's General Assembly - everything is possible.
