Want to become a part of building the fastest growing platform for coordinating action on global challenges?
If we are going to solve some of the most pressing challenges of our time, such as the climate and biodiversity crisis, equality, racism and social justice , we need to become much better at organising ourselves.
Acter is a non-profit organisation, building an open source* tool to support activists and movements across the world, to strengthen collective action, collaboration and coordination.
*What is open-source ?
“Open source is a term that originally referred to open source software (OSS). Open source software is code that is designed to be publicly accessible — anyone can see, modify, and distribute the code as they see fit.”
During the last three years we have managed to build a pilot with our users. We have established partnerships with global organisations, built a community of users and expanded our contributor community, consisting of developers, designers and ambassadors.
