We Are PublicSpaces

Our mission
We are reclaiming the internet as a force for the common good and advocating a new internet that strengthens the public domain. Read our manifesto to see the values we want to see at the core of our digital lives.

Our work
We are adopting and supporting the development of a software ecosystem that’s based on our values. One of our key activities is the development of a framework of digital quality marks, that technically validates the code and tooling of a website or software application with our values. We call these signs of merit our ‘Public Badges’. 

Our goal
We are committed to accelerating the development of  an alternative software ecosystem that serves the common interest and does not seek profit.

Our coalition
We are nineteen parties in public media, cultural heritage, festivals, museums, education and health care.
