What Is It?

Software Freedom Day is a global, grassroots effort to educate the public about the importance of software freedom and the virtues and availability of Free and Open Source Software. Local teams from all over the world organise events on the third Saturday in September. The most recent event involved over 200 teams from all over the world.

LUGOD has participated in this event in previous years: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008.
