General information

CommonsCloud is already operational! It is an online collaborative platform, the alternative to proprietary software platforms like Google Drive, but respectful with privacy and it doesn't commercialise your data.

But we still need to grow and improve it! With your donation you can contribute to complete it. I want to contribute (I want to make this a reality, even though I don't necessarily want to use it fully, at the moment) I want to be part of it (I want to be part of the early adopters or testers), look at the bounties we have for every contribution. In either way you will be part of an ambitious project: your observations as a user will define and prioritise the improvements that we will be integrating, all new functionalities will benefit everyone, in order to make the platform a real digital commons!

CommonsCloud integrates three collaborative services into one platform:

  • an online OFFICE where you can store, share and edit documents and agendas in real time,
  • a PROJECT manager that facilitates online collaboration between communities, organisations and collectives, and
  • AGORA, a debating space that allows to hold debates and collective decisionmaking between participants.
    One unified user account that allows you to get access to all three platforms.

Belangrijkste kenmerken

How will we organise CommonsCloud?

  •     We select and integrate the best existing collaborative tools in the world of free (as in freedom) software
  •     We maintain an integrated service of these tools in continuous evolution and update them
  •     We give trainings so that everyone can learn to use the platform
  •     We mutualise the platform, inviting the users to become members of the cooperative

CommonsCloud also serves to raise awareness about the massive dependence on large proprietary platforms such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple or Microsoft, and on the risks involved. We organise workshops about the importance of protecting privacy and to give visibility to free software alternatives.
That's why we do not create a startup that can be sold to the corporate giants, instead we keep collective ownership through our cooperative.

How you can contribute:
We offer different options to make a donation, either as an individual ("I want it to happen" or "I want to be part of it") or as a collective or organisation: ("We want it to happen" or "We want to be part of it").

Waarom is dit belangrijk

CommonsCloud is directed both at individual persons as well as at organisations and collectives; a critical mass of users in the social and solidarity economy. from NGOs or associations that work with volunteers, of groups of freelancers who work in a network and many other citizen initiatives that grow spontaniously as digital commons.

With an individual donation you can choose between different modalities of file storage capacity in a locally encripted server. With a collective or organisational donation you can choose between the pack that best suits your needs depending on the number of users and storage capacity on our servers. Take the leap to online collaboration and agile collective working methodologies and benefit from the CommonsCloud training workshops and a workshop for hackers on how to replicate the whole system in a self-managed server.

The more people we are, the more people contribute, the more services we will be able to develop and integrate in our platform. With your support you get access to the platform and help to recover control over your data and our freedom as society in the digital age.
Together we can create an alternative! Take the leap!

Team en ervaring

CommonsCloud is driven by the cooperative "Fem Procomuns" and has the support of an alliance of organisations and groups that believe in technological sovereignty. We have created a very active community with different professional backgrounds, from programmers, computer and encryption specialists, to designers, communicators and translators. We all contribute to the common goal of updating and continuously improving this free software project.

FemProcomuns
The cooperative FemProcomuns (freely translated: "Let's create commons-based projects"), is the promoter of CommonsCloud. It is formed by a dozen people with decades of experience in the world of free software, design, communication and social and economic development.

CommonsCloud Alliance
A set of organisations and collectives in Barcelona has been defining and developing the platform "CommonsCloud", including: Free Knowledge Institute, UOC / Dimmons, Jamgo, CoopDevs, LleialTEC, Barcelona Software, La Mar De Bits and LliureTIC.
