Subject: Hardy Release Campaign
To: "Ubuntu local community team (LoCo) contacts" <
loco-contacts at lists.ubuntu.com>
My name is Danny Piccirillo reporting from the Marketing
Team<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MarketingTeam>and we're hoping to have a
super-successful Hardy Release Campaign with your
help. Please pass this information on to your teams.
This campaign will entail creating flyers for the release to submit to us to
host on our Materials <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MarketingTeam/Materials> page
for everyone to take advantage of. Along with doing what LoCo's do, we want
lots of fliers to get out to raise awareness about Ubuntu and free software
right after the release.
If possible, teams should take the press release that will be issued by
Canonical for the release and adapt it to make their own local press
We also would like to see all LoCo's engaging in organized activism and for
this i have created the LoCo Activism
It includes tips, how to convert friends, flyering and postering, lobbying
government, educational institutions, organizations & clubs, gaining
industry support, press & media (which can be used to write that local press
release), and fundraising. Please contribute to this guide especially if you
have experience with any of the mentioned topics.
Our next meeting will be Wednesday, March 12th @ 00:00
if you have any ideas please add it to the
show up for the meeting.
Spread the word far and wide,
