<title>Call for Participation: FSFE Track About "Digital Education" During the Libre Software Meeting in Strasbourg, France</title>
<h1>Call for Participation: FSFE Track About "Digital Education" During the Libre Software Meeting in Strasbourg, France</h1>
<p>From 7 to 12 July there will be the Libre
Software Meeting in Strasbourg, France. The conference also known as
RMLL is annualy rotating and currently the biggest Free Software
event in France. This year, the main topic is "Digital Education:
building captivity or new empowerment?". With <a href="">the FSFE track</a> we are
looking for inspiring insights about golden cages and liberation not
only in educational institutions but in our everyday lives.</p>

<p>The Free Software Foundation Europe is happy to align with
Hackstub, the Strasbourg hackerspace that is organising the <a href="">Libre
Software Meeting 2018</a>, and to generate an own FSFE track. With the
main topic being "Digital Education: building captivity or new
empowerment?" we would like to concentrate on the golden cages that
surround us and that rope more and more people in every day. For us
at the FSFE, digital education is not just about college education.
It is also about the digital literacy we need to spread within the
digital society.</p>
<p>We have seen a lot of new forms of social exchange and
collaboration coming up in the past decade and are in a stage where
there is hardly any day passing at our work place, in our social
network or our daily environment that does not require the
interaction with software in any form. A lot of this software is
proprietary or interacts with other proprietary software. Every day,
new people teach themselves or are told how to use these proprietary
services - be it by order of their employer, by peer-pressure in
their networks or even enforcement by administrations. In some way or
the other, every day new people get their own "digital
<p>In the FSFE's track we look for ways that do not rope us in but
empower us instead. Free Software solutions that give us the liberty
to keep sovereignty of our data, to collaborate on new technologies
and to help everyone to understand the technology behind. You know
about a good piece of software that other people can learn from or
use in their daily interactions? You have insights on administrative
or educative processes? You can explain contexts that lead to
dependencies or empowerment?</p>
<p>Then <a href="">apply for the FSFE track</a> in one of the four categories:
"Initiation", "Tech", "Society" or "Culture &amp; Art". We are
looking for talks and workshops. You can find more detailed
information about the different topics on the <a
href="">LSM2018 pages</a>. The deadline to
apply is 30 April.</p>
