Supporting the creators of digital commons

Providing targeted support to commons efforts, especially for NGI0 Commons Fund grantees

Commons Caretakers continuously grows a structured ecosystem of multidisciplinary contributors driving the creation of new internet commons. These contributors help projects bridge gaps in their skills and expertise, in aspects of open source, open hardware, open data, and open content. Areas commonly addressed include internationalization, scaling, accessibility, quality, security audits, licensing, and technical mentoring. Experienced mentors guide grantees on improving their FOSS practices, and help small teams scale up to become inclusive and diverse communities.

Commons Caretakers delivers intermediary services related to the creation and maintenance of digital commons efforts. Together with our partner The Commons Conservancy and supported by NLnet foundation we enable people to work on efforts like FileSender, EduVPN and more. Interested? Contact us.
