We are Conscious Digital

A non-profit creating people-centered digital initiatives promoting and advancing digital human rights.

We believe in a world where individuals, not corporations or governments, are first-class citizens of the digital domain. Where technology makes us better versions of ourselves rather than facilitating consumption. A world where we are free to express our full selves, free from manipulative influences. Where digital experiences are helpful, not addictive. We aim to do this by empowering individuals to exercise their digital rights, including the right to privacy, anonymity, and free speech.
