Registration opens for Document Freedom Day 2014
Today registration opens for Document Freedom Day 2014 events. This year the campaign day is March 26th, when people who believe in fair access to communications technology and Open Standards will again present, perform, and demonstrate. Event organisers can now register on the re-launched documentfreedom.org website.
Promotional packs with all new materials are now available for ordering, including multilingual posters and leaflets, fliers, and stickers. New t-shirts are available from the online store, and introductory pages providing examples of important standards, and the need for interoperability in universities, have been published.
"Last year, 60 inspiring community groups ran events communicating the value of Open Standards around the world" says Sam Tuke, Campaign Manager. "With events already planned in Brazil, Brussels, Venezuela and elsewhere, we're aiming at 75 in 2014".
"Greater focus this year has been on fresh materials, new educational leaflets, fliers, cartoons and stickers" says Erik Albers, Community Manager. "By providing new localised materials for our passionate event organisers, we're enabling new ways for them to deliver messages of interoperability".
Funding is available for groups organising events or prizes for this year's campaign, and the team is aiming to extend it's reach beyond the 30 countries which celebrated Document Freedom last year, and looking forward to receiving new registrations over coming days. The campaign is made possible by campaign sponsors Freiheit, and Google.
