Several negative trends in the digital space are threatening our human rights and personal freedom – the loss of privacy, rampant surveillance capitalism, micro-targeting and misinformation and the addictive nature of digital services. All of these trends are possible because of the widespread collection of and trade in personal data.
The Internet was created by individuals, governments, academic and military institutions and corporations. Over the decades since it’s inception our individual and collective dependence on the digital space has grown to a degree where it now makes sense to consider it a basic human right. The Internet however does not benefit from the same recognition and protection enjoyed by other basic human rights.
Conscious Digital was created in order to empower people to take back control of their digital freedom. We aim to promote and advance Digital Human Rights by creating people centric digital initiatives. It is funded by it’s creators, and with the help of your donations.
