  12. <h1>Derheq FSFE</h1>
  13. <p>
  14. The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) is a non-profit and (in some
  15. countries) charitable non-governmental organization dedicated to
  16. <a href="/documents/freesoftware.html">Free Software as in freedom</a>.
  17. </p>
  18. <h3>Vision of Free Software</h3>
  19. <p>
  20. Access to software determines who may participate in a digital society.
  21. Therefore, the freedoms to use, copy, modify and redistribute software --
  22. as described in the
  23. <a href="/documents/freesoftware.html">Free Software
  24. definition</a> -- allow equal participation in the information age.
  25. </p>
  26. <p>
  27. The vision of Free Software is one of a stable basis for freedom in a
  28. digital world -- both in an
  29. <a href="/documents/eur5greve.html">economic</a> and socio-ethical
  30. context. Free Software is one important cornerstone for
  31. <a href="/campaigns/wsis/fs.html">freedom, democracy, human rights and
  32. development</a> in a digital society.
  33. </p>
  34. <p>
  35. The FSFE is dedicated to supporting all aspects of Free Software in
  36. Europe. Creating awareness for these issues, securing Free Software
  37. politically and legally, and giving people freedom by supporting
  38. development of Free Software are central issues of the FSFE.
  39. </p>
  40. <p>
  41. For these reasons, FSFE was founded in 2001 as the European sister
  42. organisation of the
  43. <a href="">Free Software Foundation</a> in Boston, MA,
  44. USA. Both are financially, legally and personally independent from each
  45. other as parts of the international Free Software Foundation network.
  46. </p>
  47. <h3>Vision of Cooperation</h3>
  48. <p>
  49. The second vision embodied in FSFE is that of a Europe united in the
  50. spirit of co-operation across cultural boundaries.
  51. </p>
  52. <p>
  53. Not only do we need to deal with the political reality of the European
  54. Union, which already maintains large parts of the governance touching
  55. upon the information society, but also we are finding ourselves working
  56. in a field determined largely by large multinational companies. These
  57. tend to work with a very high level of integration, coordination and
  58. consistence between countries on a European and global scale, allowing
  59. them to further their interest through "divide and conquer" tactics.
  60. </p>
  61. <p>
  62. In and with the FSFE, we stand united and work together on local and
  63. international levels, speaking with a voice that cannot be ignored.
  64. </p>
  65. <h2>Principles</h2>
  66. <p>
  67. As an organisation based upon the European culture and background, we
  68. believe in and are following fundamental principles such as democracy,
  69. multilateralism, cooperation, dialog and transparency.
  70. </p>
  71. <p>
  72. In short, we operate in a networked, team-based structure that is open to
  73. anyone sharing the
  74. <a href="/about/self-conception.html">common understanding</a> of FSFE
  75. and willing to <a href="/contribute/contribute.html">participate</a>.
  76. </p>
  77. <p>
  78. We work hard to live up to these principles as much as possible, even
  79. though reality in form of limited resources or other problems may at
  80. times let us fall short of our ideals. If you think you have seen such a
  81. case and can help us to improve, please get involved either
  82. <a href="/contribute/contribute.html">directly</a> or through one of our
  83. <a href="/associates/">associate organisations</a>.
