This year Document Freedom Day (DFD) is set for 30 March. DFD is a day that focuses public attention on the importance of free document formats and on open standards in general.

DFD is a community effort, sponsored at present just by Google, although further sponsors are welcome. It's aims are to promote the adoption of free document formats; to form a global network to coordinate activities that happen on the day and during the rest of the year between DFD's; and to facilitate community action and generally build awareness of document freedom.

The community is always looking for volunteers and those wishing to get involved can contribute in a number of ways. Document Freedom Day, which is designated as the last Wednesday in March, is now in its third year. Comments on the 2010 DFD can be found on the Document Freedom blog.
