Join us at the FSFE's community meeting during LSM2018

From July 7 to 9, the FSFE will run its annual community meeting in conjunction with the Libre Software Meeting in Strasbourg, France. On the weekend of July 7 + 8, we are very excited to run a track, set up with speakers of our community and friends to cover several burning topics regarding Free Software. Our track covers business topics like marketing for Free Software and funding Free Software projects as well as policy topics from tinkering in Brussels to success factors for Free Software implementations in public services as well as contemporary important issues regarding diversity in Free Software, software freedom in the cloud, and many more. You can find an overview of our topics on the dedicated wiki page.

On July 9, we invite our community to join us for a full day agenda to bond and prepare for the next months. The meeting will include "Open Space" methods, an "Ask us anything" session as well as room for reflections on our current activities and well-being.

Throughout the event, we will run FSFE assembly, similar to the one during CCC, CCCamp and SHA camp. This assembly can serve as a place for our community to simply come together and get to know each other or to start and work on common projects.

Introducing the FSFE's CARE team

The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) and its community aim to offer a friendly and peaceful environment for every participant at FSFE events, online and offline. To this end, the General Assembly 2017 adopted an overall Code of Conduct for the FSFE. To ensure its availability and enforcement, we created a central CARE team. If you have experienced or became aware of behaviour contrary to the principles guaranteed in this Code of Conduct, please bring such incidents to the attention of your respective local or our central CARE team as soon as possible.

The central CARE team may be reached via e-mail at care@fsfe.org but you can also contact members individually. This is possible with encrypted email and in six languages. Rest assured that your messages will always be handled confidentially.
