Discover our activities

At La Contre-Voie, we organize awareness activities to better understand the issues surrounding the digital tools we use every day: where does our personal data go? How is it used? Can we protect ourselves from Internet tracking?

We prepare workshops to make these issues accessible and bring the issue of data protection into the public debate.

What’s the matter with the GAFAM?

The GAFAM, or more generally “the web giants” collect data on billions of individuals in order to satisfy their business model, which generally consists of reselling this data to advertisers.

These giants exert cultural, economic and political domination on an international scale, which can lead to democratic abuses, as they have immense power over our lives.

How to get rid of them?

In our workshops, we give you the keys to regain control of your data using alternative tools that don’t sell your privacy.

However, using technical tools is not sufficient: understanding how the Internet works is a major challenge to emancipate yourself in the digital age. We bring this theoretical knowledge in our conferences.
