European Coordinators Meeting 2015

Last weekend, July 24-26, FSFE invited it’s coordinators all over Europe to the European Coordinators Meeting 2015 (ECM15) in the Unperfekthaus in Essen. Unfortunately, we had a bit less participation then in the previous edition due to some short-time cancellations. Fortunately, this did not spoil the good mood of all those present and we look back on a very exciting and productive coordinators meeting. In this post, find a report of our weekend.

FOSDEM 2014 – FSFE, Fellowship and speaking schedule

Just three days left until FOSDEM 2014. For every Fellow and friend of FSFE who is attending, here is some useful information:

As every year, the FSFE has a booth that you will find in building K. This is a good chance to meet other Fellows and staff of the FSFE and to have a chat with each other.

On Saturday afternoon, at 16 hours, there is a general Fellowship meeting in front of the cafeteria in between the main building and building K. Erik will tell you about the European Elections project 2014 and how you can participate. In addition, this is again a good chance to get to know Fellows from all over Europe and discuss various topics.

On Saturday night, starting from 8pm, there is a FSFE social event in a small bar in the center of Brussels. Feel free to join and enjoy an evening together. The address:

Au Vieux Port
21 Quai au Bois a Bruler

Report des Berliner FSFE Treffen am 9.Januar 2014

Kai und Luca sind noch neue Mitglieder in unserer monatlichen Fellowship-Runde, haben beim letzten Treffen aber gleich ihren Einstand gegeben: Luca mit einem Bericht von der Mobilize!-Konferenz “Whatever Happened Privacy” und Kai mit einer Übersicht über alternative Suchmaschinen. Leider war der Autor selbst krank, deshalb kann ich nur wiedergeben, was mir als Zusammenfassung zugespielt wurde. Vielen Dank dafür, wäre gerne da gewesen:

Whatever happened to privacy?

Luca legte in seiner Zusammenfassung den Fokus auf die Themen Verletzung der Privatsphäre, Demokratie und Widerstand. Dankenswerterweise stellt er die Folien seines Vortrags auf seiner Fellowship-Seite zur Verfügung.

FSFE First European Coordinators Meeting

Ten days ago, on September 27 to 29, FSFE held its first European Coordinators Meeting (#ECM) in Berlin. Therefore, the FSFE invited Fellowship Coordinators from all over Europe to come for a weekend to exchange knowledge and visions between FSFE staff and the Fellowship. In total, we have been 22 people from 10 different countries which served as a good base for a lot of input. As the main organiser of the weekend, I would like to give you a report and feedback of the weekend.

Group Picture of FSFE's first European Coordinators Meeting

On Friday evening, all attendees were gathering inside FSFE’s new office in Berlin for a warm-up meeting. As the office is pretty small, shortly the room became very crowded with so many people. On the other hand, this was a good way to directly get in first contact with most people, as everybody was just standing next to each other. And, standing in the office, was also a good chance for everyone to directly grab FSFE’s promotion material.
