for a sustainable digital world

TheAlternative calendar


TheAlternative.ch is the digital arm of [project21]. In the digital age, we want to draw attention to a sustainable interaction with knowledge and culture. We want to encourage usage and comprehension of Free and Open Source Software (also known as FOSS) as an alternative to proprietary software, as well as promote similar open alternatives in other areas (e.g. Creative Commons, Public Domain, Project Gutenberg etc.).

Why is Free Software important? In the 21st century, the significance of digital forms of knowledge will commence growing considerably. Software is a kind of problem-solving knowledge, encoded and stored electronically. Current developments such as software patents, digital rights management and Trusted Computing can have dangerous consequences for our society while alternatives are barely considered.

We think it's important to have a sustainable approach in digital life.
