The enthusiasm for Free Software has created an international community, where people share their positive experiences, ask for recommendations on Free Software topics and programmes, and solve problems together.
Some of them also go a step further: they support the use of Free Software as a cause and act to promote it. This is where we come in. The Free Software Foundation Europe helps the Free Software movement in Europe take action and stay informed.
Our community is organised in local groups, country teams, and thematic groups. Some of these are casual and have ongoing discussions in chats. Others are task-oriented and plan their own campaigns.
Whether you are a long-time Free Software enthusiast or a newcomer, our groups are waiting for you! Say hello to the team you are interested in, introduce yourself and join their next meeting!

You can even start a group from scratch. If you know 2-3 people in your area that want to become active too, you can form a group. We will then spread the message so that Free Software enthusiasts in your area can join. Have a look at our how-to, and contact the community coordinator to get started. Also, some of our groups have been quiet lately. Still, you can try out contacting them and asking for a meeting if you are feeling extra motivated.
We want to make sure that the FSFE community is a safe space for everyone. All groups accept and respect our code of conduct. We kindly ask all participants to be excellent to each other.
