Fedora Events: FSCONS 2011 - Gothenburg, Sweden

Logo fscons 2011.png

The FSCONS 2011 (Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit) is the Nordic countries' largest gathering for free culture, free software and a free society. It's a yearly conference for and by the people who work to change our future and has 250-300 participants primarily from northern Europe. Legal guardian and main organiser for the conference is the Society for Free Culture and Software, which is assisted by a host of other organisations.

FSCONS exists to provide a meeting place where subjects covering society, culture and technology can be discussed and brought to life in peer discussions, without being confined to each particular subject area. It should provide both the physical and virtual space where people, organisations and governments, with interest in the three subject areas can meet in a participatory and constructive dialogue. The unique combination of topics creates a platform where cross-pollination between the areas can occur, and where new co-operations and thoughts can emerge which allows the participants to find new inspiration even from areas outside of their own.

When and Where



We should have 2-3 Ambassadors to have always at least one Ambassador on the Booth.
