Free Software Foundation Europe - Events - Georg Greve in South America
</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Georg Greve in South America</h1>
<p>From <b>May 20th, 2004</b> until <b>June 10th, 2004</b>, <a
href="/about/people/greve/">Georg Greve</a> was touring South America,
visiting the local Free Software community in Argentina, Uruguay and
Brazil to support them in their struggle for freedom and share
experiences collected in the work of the FSFE.</p>
<p>His public activities included an interview for Argentina's most
important newspaper, articles in one of the most popular papers in
Porto Alegre, Brazil and public speeches such as a speech at the
University of Cordoba about Free Software in Education. He was
keynote speaker at the first national Argentinian congress on Free
Software organised by USUARIA in Buenos Aires and the international
Free Software Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil.</p>
<p>As laws about Free Software in education and the public sector are
increasingly being discussed, Georg Greve also spoke to the national
parliament of Uruguay in Montevideo and the senate of the province of
Buenos Aires, Argentina to support these initiatives.</p>
<p>After visiting the foreign ministry in Brasilia, Brazil and giving
a speech at the Banco Central do Brasil, he made his way back to
Europe.</p>
<p>Personally he most valued the chance to get a first hand impression
on how Latin America is using the freedom of Free Software to address
social issues and problems. A prominent example are the "Telecentros"
in Brazil which are set up in camps of the Landless Workers Movement
and other areas with little hope in order to give people a way of
acquiring skills, getting new perspectives, gaining a voice and
building a community to work for social change.</p>
<p>We expect this trip to help and support the local Free Software
community in their work and contribute towards building a global
network of Free Software organisations, of which FSFE will be one
part.</p>
