Join Freedom not Fear any time

Freedom not Fear is a self-organized BarCamp, kindly supported by five Members of Parliament and our participants. Our schedule will change over the weekend. If you would like to join Freedom not Fear, join one of our plenaries or visit us at Mundo B, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, BXL.
· Evening plenary Saturday 9 November: 18:45–20:00
· Morning plenary Sunday 10 November: 10:30–11:15

Saturday and Sunday will be unconference-style:
The session topics will be proposed and scheduled during the day itself, in the morning plenary. We have six rooms, so in any session slot there will be several sessions running in parallel.

What to bring:
Yourself. Also stickers, of course. And possibly a laptop to contribute to the collective note-taking during sessions (and to stick the stickers on).

Please support Freedom not Fear with a donation
