Join us on January 18th to celebrate Education Freedom Day!
*Education Freedom Day* is a worldwide celebration of *Open Educational
Initiated by 2013 by the same organization behind Software Freedom Day
<http://www.softwarefreedomday.org> it aims at educating the worldwide
public about the benefits of using Free Software and Open Educational
Resources in education. It also provides an international day to serve
as a platform to raise awareness to existing projects and communities
around the world as well a encourage participation in local free
software and open educational resources initiatives. The non-profit
organization *Digital Freedom Foundation*
<http://www.digitalfreedomfoundation.org> coordinates EFD at a global
level, providing support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but
volunteer teams around the world organize the local EFD events to impact
their own communities.
Education Freedom Day will be hosted annually starting this *Saturday,
January 18th, 2014*. Registration is now open
<http://www.educationfreedomday.org/cgi-bin/register.py> and we will try
to provide as much information as possible regarding OER projects
worldwide. Of course there is a global map
