We’re passionate about using technology for our common good

We are a young coalition of concerned citizens and professionals around advocating for a use of technology that benefits our individual and collective well being. Dr Tilleczek, Canada Research Chair at York University is among the advisory committee.

We seek to change the discourse on tech among the general public, in particular youth,  as well as promote all initiatives that abide by « tech for good » ethics by using technology in the most efficient manner, coupled with community building. 

The Problem

Digital tools from dominant corporate players have revolutionized our lives, sometimes without regard for ethics, privacy or local laws.

Our Solution

Be an advocate for developping technology that benefits all of us as citizens and a source of education on the dangers of uninformed tech use.

Our Actions

Raise awareness among the general public, including youth, legislators and parents, on the dangers inherent in an undeducated use of digital tools.

Promote uses of technology ” for good”, ie, preserving privacy, consent on use of data, and solving a real problem.

Provide workshops for students and educators in primary and secondary schools and universities on how tech tools impact their lives and well-being.
