Open Atlas is a French NGO building open source technology, citizen tools and networks
The result produces a visualisation and a connected territories of local actors and actions.
Once Communected people have access to a rich set of Tools :
share projects, events, common interests, thoughts and become directly
implicated in the territory's life, be informed in real time, vote, propose ideas...
The project is build for the commons and is totaly open source , semantic and inter operable, integrating some cool technical features.
It becomes an interaction platform for citizen's to link to other local people, NGOs,
companies and their city hall. A network where local activity is most valued by usage.
By building tools to make it easier for citizens to participate more in local activity
will give them a bigger sense of belonging and a new way of interacting
on what counts.
The citizen is like a sensor and the system itself is part of the commons and a way to
visualize the systemic state of a territory.
It then becomes a great experiment and analysis tool
for thinking for the commons based on real local interaction and needs.
we are in the process of building an open societal project or programme called SMARTERRE : Smart Territory
Where we approach every aspect of society and try to compile all best practises.
We keep in mind that the system must respect all aspects of our human rights and build on a natural and finitite environment.
