GREEN DATA EARTH

Digital collaboration is at the core of CoLab activities, as well as the global activities and daily digital life of the permaculture movement and allied movements and citizens around the world.

Today with more than 4 billion internet users the digital online activity is offsetting more than the air travel industry.

GreenData.Earth aims to provide the necessary resources to enable us to reduce the offsetting of our digital life.

“As people, we need to adopt an ethic of right livelihood, for if we bend our labor and skills to work that is destructive, we are the destroyers … We should not be passive workers in established destructive systems, but rather we can be investors in life. We cannot profess or teach one ethic, and live another, without damage to ourselves and to common resources.”

-Bill Mollison, A Designer’s manual p. 507
