Empowering self-organizing of the self-employed

This years’ theme “Freelancers Assemble! Working Together in the New Economy” aims to drive all local events towards one objective: create an ecosystem of support and collaboration, made by freelancers, for freelancers.

#EFWeek has an inclusive, crowdsourced and decentralized format so anyone can participate. You can organize EVENTS, offer special DEALS and take ACTIONS. We’ll support you by providing a communication toolkit and by promoting your local efforts at European level. It’s crucial we bring key challenges and grassroots solutions to the forefront of the #futureofwork debate.
