in May 2015 Berlin's Linux user group (BeLUG) has started a new type of event 
which has spread quickly all over Europe: the Linux Presentation Day (LPD)

2015.1: Berlin only
2015.2: 72 cities in three countries
2016.1: 110 cities in 10 countries
2016.2: 150+ cities in 14 countries (on October, 22nd)

I contact you because we intend to expand the LPD beyond Europe next year and 
you are obviously interested in Linux and probably in a larger propagation of 
Linux, too.

The aim of the LPD towards the general public is to provide biannual and 
comprehensive information events about Linux for private users who would like 
to get a first impression of Linux.

The aim towards the media is to make the event so big (both nationally and 
internationally) that the nationwide non-IT media cover it regularly.

The aim towards the Linux community is that an LPD event can be so small and 
easy to organize (even without costs) that really everyone can try to organize 
an event with good chances of success. The local organizers decide on their 
own what their event shall be like; we just make suggestions and offer 

You can find a longer description of the concept here:


Are you interested in participating in the LPD somehow i.e. organize an event 
or help us find other organizers?

Best regards,

(Mr.) Hauke Laging
