Dear all,

Estonian presidency in the Council of the EU is currently asking for
ideas for its upcoming ministerial declaration on e-government.

So-called Tallinn Declaration is going to be signed by e-government
ministers across the EU in October 2017, together with a number of
political proposals on how to build a trustworthy and interoperable
digital government. Tallinn Declaration is, therefore, designed to
express EU member states' joint vision for e-government and political
commitment to follow the goals set.

The proposal for the declaration is currently open for public comments
until **14 July**. The FSFE has already provided its comments to the
text by stressing the need to explicitly acknowledge Free Software and
Open Standards as necessary building blocks for any transparent,
accountable and truly interoperable digital government. For more
information, please follow the link:


The FSFE encourages you to participate in this public consultation by
submitting your comments. Feel free to reuse the arguments laid out
above for your own submission and tell the EU ministers that truly
inclusive digital government for *all* citizens and businesses is
impossible without Free Software and Open Standards.

Please submit your comments here:


Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,
