We believe in a greater autonomy for people and collectives. We believe that it is essential for groups and individuals to manage by themselves their direction, life and authority.
We believe that our organisation must not be a simple service company but must also integrate continuing education of workers and members to new technologies, but also along the principles of participative organisation like ParEcon (see below) and other horizontal organisational techniques.
We believe that organisations should be transparant towards their members but also towards society at large. No organisation evolves in a void and all our actions have consequences. Therefore, it is essential that the public can follow on the actions and decisions of the different organisations that make society. We believe that the flow of information coming out of organisations must not be blocked, but be broadcasted so that citizens can take enlightened decisions on the issues that affect them.
Copyleft (free software)
We believe in developping Free/Libre and Open Source software. Free software is a matter of freedom (as in freedom of speech): everyone should be free to use software for any socially useful purposes. Software is not a tangible material object, like a chair, sandwich or oil, so it can be copied and changed easily. Those possibilities render software useful as such; we believe that software users must be able to appropriate those possibilities.
We believe that our organisation must be self-sufficient and not depend exclusively on one big customer or state to finance itself. We are always looking for ways to diversify our sources of income and believe in partnership to develop durable and functional links with other organisations. Similarly, we offer technological solutions that empower people with their own tools within their organisations.
We believe that our organisation must support citizen initiative and the left behind of our society. We also believe that an organisation must build itself in support and respect of each other, their integrity and their dignity. We also believe that some sacrifices must be made so that the organisation doesn't harm mankind and nature as a whole. "Above all, do no harm".
Equity and equality
We believe that everyone must have the same chances not only at the start, but also during the race. We are trying to eliminate inequities between individuals and compensate those which are impossible to eliminate.
We believe in balanced job complexes, variable modes of decision, in participation of workers in the definition of their workplace, in participation of parties affected by the services of the organisation in its orientation. In short, we are strongly inspired by the participatory economics model enounced by Michael Albert.
