We’ve been an active part of the Fridays For Future movement since the very beginning: suggesting, teaching and implementing open technologies. Open standards are the natural choice for a movement with ecological values and its our political duty to promote open tools.
We’ve created a partnership with BM Service in order to host our website on a zero cloud server and rebuilt the website from scratch with WordPress. A lot of work was needed to be done because FFF Italia was using Wix, a lock-in platform.
Digital Sustainability WG
A group of activists with tech skills decided to create a workgroup specialised on applying concept of sustainability to the digital space.
Mastodon + Peertube
We added Mastodon and Peertube to the broadcasting channels in order to reach privacy concerned activists and inspire people to discover the Fediverse: an ecosystem of open source social networks.
As soon as Peertube was able to stream, with the version 3, we helped activists to use it in some live streamings, providing a more private alternative.
In order to provide an alternative to Facebook Events and integrate climate strike into the website, we created a new workflow for Italian FFF local groups. Now events are created on Mobilizon and they appear in the Italian website on Events and Map page, but also on fridaysforfuture.org.
