We are a global campaign to center the knowledge of marginalized communities (the majority of the world) on the internet.
3/4 of the online population of the world today comes from the global South – from Asia, from Africa, from Latin America. And nearly half those online are women. Yet most public knowledge online has so far been written by white men from Europe and North America.

Whose Knowledge? is a radical re-imagining and reconstruction of the internet, so that together we build and defend an internet of, for and by all.
