Learn more about APC:

Our mission is to create a just and sustainable world by harnessing the collective power of activists, organisations, excluded groups, communities and social movements, to challenge existing power structures and ensure that the internet is developed and governed as a global public good.

Our vision is for people to use and shape the internet and digital technologies to create a just and sustainable world, leading to greater care for ourselves, each other and the earth.

Meet APC staff and members, and learn more about who we are and what is the change we work to bring about to:

In 2020 APC turns 30 years old, and to commemorate this special date we have asked the members of our network about their vision for APC in the next 10 years to come. While we are celebrating what has been achieved in the past three decades, at the same time we are looking forward to more years of harnessing the collective power of activists, organisations, excluded groups, communities and social movements to create a just and sustainable world, challenging existing power structures and ensuring that the internet is developed and governed as a global public good. Check out all the messages that many of our members have sent! 

Digital goodies available as well! We invite you to download these designs and come up with your own ideas on where and how to use them:
