FSFE wins Theodor Heuss Medal

by holmes Contributions Published on Feb 01, 2010 03:40 PM

Good news for the free software movement! The Theodor Heuss Foundation has announced that Free Software Foundation Europe has been awarded the 2010 Theodor Heuss Medal for its contribution "to the development and establishment of rules for good global governance."

About the Theodor Heuss Prize

The Theodor Heuss prize and medals are given annually to people and organizations that are models of democratic behavior.

The Theodor Heuss Foundation is named for Germany's first president, who served 1949-1959, as a reminder of Heuss's committment to moral courage and democracy. The foundation seeks "to bring attention to something, which has to be done and shaped in our democracy, without being finished" (Carl Friedrich v. Weizsäcker, 1965).
