  7. <h1>The Document Foundation and the FSFE strengthen their relationship</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">The Free Software Foundation (FSFE) is joining the <a
  9. href="https://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/">Advisory
  10. Board of The Document Foundation</a>. At the same time, The Document
  11. Foundation is becoming an <a href="/associates/associates.html">associated
  12. organisation of the FSFE</a>.</p>
  13. <p>The Free Software Foundation Europe's aim is to help people control
  14. technology instead of the other way around. However, this is a goal which no
  15. single organisation can achieve on its own. Associated organisations are
  16. entities that share the FSFE's vision and support the foundation and Free
  17. Software in general by encouraging people to use and develop Free Software, by
  18. helping organisations understand how Free Software contributes to freedom,
  19. transparency and self-determination, and by removing barriers to Free Software
  20. adoption.</p>
  21. <p>With this mutual expression of support, both organisations strengthen one
  22. another in their fight to keep the general public in the technological driver's
  23. seat. While the FSFE embodies the principles of the community movement working
  24. in support of the adoption of Free Software in companies, public administrations
  25. and for private citizens, the Document Foundation turns principles and ethics
  26. into actual products, putting a first class, fully-featured, and completely free
  27. productivity suite in the hands of users.</p>
  28. <p>"We are happy to welcome the Free Software Foundation Europe as a member of
  29. our Advisory Board. Together, we will able to further develop the adoption of
  30. Free Software in Europe, amongst public administrations and enterprises", said
  31. Eike Rathke, a <a
  32. href="https://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/board/">Director of The
  33. Document Foundation</a> and a long time Free Software advocate and
  34. hacker.</p>
  35. <p>"We believe it is important to join forces with all the organisations active
  36. in Free Software around Europe," said <a
  37. href="/about/kirschner/kirschner.html">Matthias Kirschner</a>, President of the
  38. Free Software Foundation Europe, "and work together to reach our common goals.
  39. With our associated organisations we want to show that we are a strong and
  40. cohesive movement, and we work to achieve common objectives. To do this, we
  41. exchange ideas, coordinate efforts, motivate each other, and find opportunities
  42. to work together on specific projects. This is the case with The Document
  43. Foundation, steward of one of the most successful Free Software projects:
  44. LibreOffice".</p>
