We code

The platform economy and 'smart technology' change the position of citizens in society. New skills are expected, and new knowledge is assumed. Code considers this development with a positive critical eye. We are enthusiastic about the opportunities it offers, critical of the new power relations that this entails.

 

We stand for technical emancipation of the citizen, and for the democratization of technology. Technology has the potential to be an instrument of social innovation and justice; we look for and develop practices that stimulate this potential. We do this with citizens, agencies and governments. One time through awareness programmes, the other time by designing concrete alternatives.
