CoLab Digital Circle

Providing digital services, advice, and products to regenerative networks and organisations.

About


Since 2015 many hands, minds and hearts from all across the globe have been cultivating a virtual community garden where practitioners of permaculture could align online in a spirit of experimentation and collaboration.

Shortly afterwards, Digital Circle formed to investigate "digital" aspects of "doing permaculture together".
This has provided a vital contribution toward learning how we can use web systems to collaborate across the planet, and this new "space" is also very generative, with many creative ways to use and respond to changes.
Tech innovations make possible many new opportunities for designing trans-local social permaculture systems which support us in meeting our land-based permaculture aims.

The Digital Circle aims to work in various dimensions to connect local efforts into collaboration for global impact.

The circle has become a commons for folx both technical-minded and those simply curious and engaged.
From this circle, micro-enterprises have and are forming, such as:
  • supporting the development of blended international convergences
  • researching ethical platforms and apps
  • providing cloud storage and office software that is open-source and powered by renewables
  • consulting with organizations seeking to integrate permaculture ethics into web systems
  • building generative relationships with other organizations in the tech-for-good ecosystem
We look forward to co-creating value with you in this dynamic time!
