Enabling a data-based circular economy via global collaboration and local production
Our vision is to promote a circular, resilient, and digitally-based mode of production and consumption that enables the greatest possible sovereignty, empowerment and participation of citizens all over the world.
We want to support Fab Cities to produce everything they consume by 2054 based on collaboratively developed and globally shared data as commons on the web.
The REFLOW Project aims to develop circular and regenerative cities through enabling active citizen involvement and systemic change to re-think the current approach to material flows in cities. The project utilizes Fab Labs and maker spaces as catalysts for change in urban and peri-urban environments.
Dyne has contributed to the development of digital culture and the Internet since the 1990s, showing that it is possible to bring technology close to the people and fight successfully for the common good.

The Tomb project by Dyne.org is actually really cool. They have done a lot of work to make the power of cryptsetup accessible to mere mortals.

Zenroom stands for Citizen Crypto. It is a core part of the DECODE tech stack for Smart Cities and makes it easy to understand the complexity of data transformation while being compatible with any platform, including Legacy Infrastructure. Dyne.org makes Crypto for Citizens and makes it Open Source.
