FOSS4G UK 2019 widening participation survey

Fiona Hemsley-Flint-2

Hi there,

This year's FOSS4G UK conference will be at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh from the 18th to 21st September, with the main conference on the 19th and 20th (icebreaker on the 18th, code sprint on the 21st). This is a friendly, relaxed conference where we discuss all things free, open source and geo-related.

Tickets will be no more than £40 per day, with concession rates available too.

We'll be releasing more information and tickets soon, but first we'd like to ask the community for a bit of help...

This year we have received a generous sponsorship to help widen participation, with a particular emphasis on enabling parents, who otherwise might not be able to attend, to come along.

This is where we need your assistance, as we'd like to get an idea of whether offering some form of childcare would be beneficial, and what would be the best way to do this.

We have put together a very quick survey (5 questions, 2-5 mins) which we would really appreciate if you could complete to assist us in our decision making:

There is also the opportunity to comment on any other ways you might like us to help widen participation, so even if you don't have children, please do fill in the survey!

We look forward to your responses.

Many thanks,


On behalf of the FOSS4G UK <a href="tel:2019" target="_blank">2019 organising committee
