Ubuntu needs to gain more visibility in Belgium. It's important that people hear a couple of time of Ubuntu before they actually try it. Therefore, the 6 month release is ideal to do a "larger scale" action around Ubuntu.

Train station actions

During the Sunday evening there is a massive flow of students that pass through the train stations of Belgian student city's. It wouldn't be a big effort to do an action there, compared to the number of people we can reach. Eg. A train coming from Brussels to Leuven contains more than 600 students. The idea would be to:

  • (1) come with a projector, and project a presentation or a ubuntu desktop on a wall or screen at the exit.
  • (2) Flyer at the exit of the train station.
  • (3) Add your idea here
