For the first time in nearly a generation, the EU will update its 
copyright framework. This is a unique opportunity to reform and 
modernise Europe’s creaking, outdated, ill-adapted rules. Activists 
interested in taking up on this opportunity will get a crash course in 
effective copyright activism at a workshop in Warsaw on 5-6 November.

To help prepare activists for the challenge facing all of us, we are 
cooperating with Communia to organise an event and look for participants 
for this two-day EU copyright educational workshop – the School of 
Rock(ing) EU Copyright.

EDRi offers a stipendum of maximum 300 EUR to cover transport and 
accommodation costs for up to 20 participants of the School of Rock(ing) 
EU Copyright and the CopyCamp conference in Warsaw. Non-funded 
participants will also be welcome, of course.

The School of Rock(ing) EU Copyright will take place 5 and 6 November in 
Warsaw, following the CopyCamp 2015 event which will take place 4 November.

The goals of the School of Rock(ing) EU Copyright are to:

inform the participants on the current state of play of the EU copyright 
provide the tools that can be used to campaign on national level;
deepen the understanding of copyright activists of the EU legal and 
decision-making frameworks;
inform participants on how it is possible to influence decision-making 
in the EU;
identify possibilities for sharing of resources and talents such as 
translation and technical skills;
create networks (and develop existing ones) of civil society activists 
to work together on common goals to reform
copyright, in order to have a stronger voice and avoid duplicate efforts.
