Quadrature Communication Camp

Do you like freedom of speech? and the Internet? Are you good with visual, graphical, sound creation? Do you know how to code? As a citizen, you want to have your say in the public debate? La Quadrature du Net is organising its communication camp, a get-together to take part in our communication and awareness campaigns on our important issues and ongoing dossiers.

La Quadrature du Net is a citizen group defending a free and open Internet.

What is a stake is universal: a free and open Internet implies the conditions which guarantee each and everyone the right to freedom of expression in the current and coming digital environments.


We are organising a 3-days event (from October 19th, 14:00 to October 21st) to create and improve "communication and information elements as well as tools related to La Quadrature du Net's message (freedom of expression online, sharing, Net neutrality...) and actions.

By getting an important number of people together in a fun setting, we hope to get everyone to bring their creativity and help in different domains.
