We aim to integrate researchers, community leaders, and civic hackers in collaborative projects and long-term partnerships that enable inclusion, sustainability, and equity.
Our methods combine technical aspects, social and political issues, equity perspectives, and a design solution accepted through consensus-building among the local and global communities
To refresh our ideas of ownership and governance, we are designing and experimenting with new and remembered ways of working together, sharing resources, group decision making and how to steward commons and common pool resources.
We support open innovation, collaboration and knowledge-sharing amongst our members, partners and the wider research, development, and education communities.
Our mission is to create tools, capacities, and communities for sustainable and democratic societies. Connecting dots across all levels and branches of the local and global governance, we keep the public informed and empowered to shape other actors’ approaches based on principles of transparency, accountability, and good governance.
We foster the wider open collaboration ecosystem, by offering a number of resources such as training material, tools and reports. The topics covered are very broad, from how to use open data, tips to starting a business or how to build teams for social impact.
Our goal is to create a unique nexus where civil society meets and engages the academy, industry, and government to collectively make smarter decisions toward more resilient, democratic, and prosperous communities.
