About us

DFEY (Digital Freedom in Education and Youth) is a group of young people from across Britain who believe in the need to protect their freedoms in this digital age, and wish to educate others about how to protect their own freedoms. DFEY understand that many communities and mailing lists set up on the Internet may be intimidating to younger members, and for this reason aim to provide a friendly environment in which younger people are not afraid to contribute their ideas.

DFEY was founded by members who believe strongly in the use of Free and Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) and as a result of this see the use of Free Software technologies as not only a good way to help protect digital freedoms, but also beneficial during any young person's technological education. DFEY therefore campaigns for the increased use of and education about FLOSS in schools across the UK.
