Understanding the digital world
To address the cultural domination of the web giants, it is necessary to look critically at widespread digital surveillance and at the monetization of our private lives.
We believe that another digital ecosystem is possible, off the beaten track, away from the GAFAM. An ecosystem mode of empowering, protective tools, and of software that prioritizes your needs instead of the political and commercial interests of others.
By disseminating our knowledge, we guide uninitiated audiences towards a better understanding of digital issues.
We often cover the following topics:
- The geopolitical dimension of digital technology
- Open data
- Anonymity on the Internet
- The Snowden disclosures
- Libre and open-source software
- Internet centralization
- Captology and attention economics
- And many others…
Our previous conferences
The rise of digital alternatives that respect our freedoms will not happen without widespread awareness, which we cannot initiate alone: this is why we work in cooperation with other structures that advocate for the digital commons.
One of our goals is to connect institutions looking for ethical digital actors and educational structures that offer awareness activities.
These organizations have hosted conferences with us:
