@:html.soft invites you to join us on a shared adventure: to explore the
digital worlds where humanity and our fundamental freedoms are respected,
respected
right through to the creation of the tools that we use.

During this journey, planned for 2017 to 2020, let us set out to define the
digital tools which make possible our contributions in all fields of our
activity
and in all types of creativity.
essaimage ### 2018-2019: Pass on know-how

The web giants have based their model on centralising our data, seducing users
with services which actually lock our digital existence into gigantic digital
silos filled with our data: records of our clicks, our conversations, our
personal
life. To reproduce this centralised model is to concentrate power and the
dangers
that come with it.

Let us discover a world in which we don’t put all our lives in one single
digital
basket! A world in which, faced with the digital supermarkets that deal in our
data, we organise digital "cooperatives" that are local and based on exchange.
A world in which @:html.chatons abound, a world with personal clouds, where
we teach each other, with international cross-pollination.
educ-pop ### 2019-2020: Inspire the possibilities

There is a vision behind the services that the web giants offer. It reduces
our intimacy to a commodity for the benefit of advertisers and marketers. This
diminishes our role to that of a consumer and we are abandoning our freedom
for more comfort. There is no room in this schema for digital tools that
enable
possibilities like participation, contribution and popular education.

That leaves an as yet unexplored world for us to discover and cultivate
together,
equipped with tools designed to develop new ways to team up and to create
commons.
A world that is inspired by countless communities (such as the free software
community), to help each of us to choose the tools that work for us, to become
digitally autonomous, to collaborate differently and to share knowledge.
