In our January Newsletter, read about our plans for 2021 including our
upcoming birthday celebrations and our participation at FOSDEM. We roll
out this year's "I love Free Software" campaign and, as usual, report
about our various community activites.

 == FSFE's plans for 2021 ==

In the last weeks, we have constantly developed our message of software
freedom for 2021. And with so many exciting things surrounding FSFE's
activities in the upcoming months, we are looking forward to realize

The FSFE will celebrate its birthday as we turn 20 in 2021. 20 years of
defending user's rights and spreading software freedom. We want to use
that momentum to speak, show and reflect on our activities in the past
20 years. And we want to give momentum to our community because it is on
their shoulders that we have built our movement and our networks, which
form a well-known pan-European Free Software expert interest
representation called Free Software Foundation Europe. More information
on this in the next newsletter.

As we turn 20, we will continue to have to deal with the current global
situation, for instance by running our events online this year. Our
running campaigns will be updated and we will launch a brand-new
campaign "Upcycling Android" towards the second half of the year – stay

Now looking a bit into the closer future, our event team is doing its
best to offer you a pleasant FSFE online experience at FOSDEM, the
biggest Free Software conference in Europe. Not only are we offering a
digital booth and our annual pre-FOSDEM community meeting, we will also
co-coordinate the Legal and Policy Devroom. For more information, see
below. Not to forget that right after FOSDEM there will be the:

 == I love Free Software day 2021 ==

More than any other year, we feel it is important this year to come
together and celebrate the annual "I love Free Software day" [1] on 14.
February. After months of a dark and physically distanced winter, we
invite you to show your faces and your love towards the philosophy that
unites us all, our love for Free Software.

To bring us all together on the same virtual page, we have prepared a
brand new "I love Free Software" activity for you. Use our graphics [2]
to share your love with your friends, family, colleagues and the Free
Software community and to virtually unite. Simply take a picture of
yourself that you like and write down in a few words why you love Free
Software. Then fill our share-pic generator and share the result in your
favourite channels or via social media. By using the hashtag #IloveFS
you make sure that we also see it - or by pinging our account directly
in the respective social media channel. If none of that works for you,
we are also happy to receive your image in an email to contact at fsfe.org.

We are really looking forward to celebrating #IloveFS with you!


Start the new year as a supporter of the Free Software Foundation Europe


 == Upcoming events ==

The FSFE will be present at FOSDEM, the biggest annual Free Software
happening in Europe. While FOSDEM normally takes place in Brussels, this
year it will happen online. Max Mehl gives a talk about the "Best
practices for declaring copyright and licenses" [4] and Lucas Lasota
will speak about Router Freedom. The FSFE will be present with a digital
booth that you can visit to talk with people. There will also be some
events happening "at the booth". Unfortunately, not all details from the
organisers are available at the time of writing this newsletter, so we
cannot dig into more details or offer links right now. Please follow us
on social media ( Mastodon [5] / Twitter [6] ) or visit the official
page [7] during the event to find our booth.

Apart from the digital booth, for the first time the FSFE will co-
organise the Legal and Policy Devroom at FOSDEM. We will also continue
with our traditional pre-FOSDEM meeting the day before FOSDEM, on Friday
5 February 2021. This meeting is our community get-together and will be
kicked-off with a keynote by Cory Doctorow.

- I love Free Software Day: As every year on 14 February the Free
  Software community is celebrating the "I love Free Software Day" [8].
  Don't miss showing your love on that day, following the hashtag
  #IloveFS and listening to our upcoming special IloveFS podcast episode

 == What have we done? Inside and outside the FSFE ==

- The FSFE was present with a digital representation at this year's
  online Chaos Communication Congress, called "Remote Chaos Experience "
  or #rC3. Together with our cluster about:freedom [10] we created a map
  for the rC3-world [11] and produced a joint presentation video [12].
  Since we used to sing the Free Software song at our booths at the CCC,
  we also transferred this happening into the digital world and invited
  folks to join and sing the Free Software song together in a Jitsi room

- Our project manager Lucas Lasota gave a talk about Router Freedom at
  the Remote Chaos Experience rC3 [14]. The talk provided an overview of
  the recent successes for Router Freedom and the legal challenges
  against net neutrality in Europe.

- Our programme manager Max Mehl participated in the GNU/Linux News
  Podcast by GNU/Linux.ch [15] (German) with one of the topics covering
  the principle of "Public Money? Public Code!" to be applied on
  publicly funded mobile phone apps.
