Principles & values

Activists should be doing activism, not paperwork, reporting or accounting

We are in an emergency

We each have to focus on where we can make a difference in our communities. If there is something that can be mutualized, we should create a working group to do just that so we can solve things for everyone, not just for us.

We trust by default

We are all fighting for a more sustainable society for our communities. We trust by default.

We are transparent

We need everyone’s help. But people can only contribute to something that they can see. That’s why we do everything in the open and we invite you to do the same. Whenever you have a question, it’s better to post it publicly on our collective. Other people may have the same question now or later. Our budget and all our expenses are also public on our collective page.

Be mindful

If you can avoid spending the money, or if you can find a cheaper option, better! The money you can save, is money that others in the community will be able to use to have more impact. We all win. Also, it’s always better to find someone in the community who can do it for free, it will give that person an opportunity to contribute and do something meaningful for the community.

Done is better than perfect

We can always find cheaper, better quality, etc. But we are running out of time (did we say that already?). So of course please be mindful about the money but above all get it done.

Be sustainable

Favor the local economy, rent instead of buying if you can to make sure that objects are used at their full capacity. If you buy, buy second hand and/or sustainable material.
