So that the name 'LibrePlanet' is strongly associated with a clear goal, and so individual groups can cooperate and collaborate effectively, all LibrePlanet participants agree with this set of founding principles:
Add this box to your profile page to indicate you support these documents and agree to work in accordance with LibrePlanet's Mission Statement and Code of Conduct.
Simply add the following line to your user page:
LibrePlanet Interest Groups are organized around a shared interest, concern, or issue rather than a local community. This could be anything: reaching out to underprivileged communities, playing and advocating free software videogames, dealing with racism and sexism within the free software movement, or promoting free software in government and public institutions. Collaboration is encouraged between LibrePlanet:Local Teams and interest groups. All groups are working together for free software in accordance with the LibrePlanet project's mission statement and code of conduct.

Joining an interest groups is easy and your level of involvement is up to you. Interest groups should have instructions on how to join. You are encouraged to take initiative on any projects or ideas you have instead of waiting for permission. Learn more about how to get involed on the participation page.
Non-LibrePlanet Interest Groups
Lots of interest groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Creative Commons, and others which are not LibrePlanet teams are also catalogued on this wiki. You can find them through the interest group category. These groups are also welcome to use the wiki as an organizing space. If you are involved with any interest groups that are not already listed, please add a page for it with the proper regional category.
LibrePlanet is young and many groups still do not have pages! If there's not yet a page for a group you care about, consider creating one one.

Why LibrePlanet Teams?
The tradition of computer enthusiasts and fans forming meeting groups around their shared passion is as old as the personal computer itself. Today, there are so many efforts to establish local groups around various free software projects. From GNU Linux user groups, to distribution-specific advocacy groups, to groups around programming languages, and various user and hacker groups for lots of exciting free software projects that we are grateful to have today.
The LibrePlanet wiki is here to leverage that vast network of free software communities and provide the infrastructure to catalogue them all and build a network of support around them. LibrePlanet teams aim to be widely inclusive, but still focused teams that can supplement other existing groups. Also check out the available resources and benefits.
