The Free Range Network is a "disorganisation" – a group with no structure, no formal membership, and no formal presence. Ultimately free range is a concept of disassociated action; grassroots activists working together on matters of common concern, sharing resources and expertise towards a greater common goal.
Free Range Projects Edit
The Free Range Network operates as a series of projects that focus on different areas of interest within the network. Some projects are more active than others; some are only operative when there is a need for them. Current project areas include

- 'Less', reducing consumption to meet the problems our future energy supply and climate change
- 'energy and food', looking at how we produce and consume the most critical human energy resource
- the 'Great Outdoors', a new initiative developing the skills for simple living through learning to camp
The Community-Linux Training Centre Project Edit
This is the free software training side of the Network's activity on free and free software. Originally a touring Gnu/Linux training platform, the CLTC has now evolved into a project to encourage the use of free software through community-based training events.
