Together We're Working to

catalyze a more humane future

We reframe the insidious effects of persuasive technology, expose the runaway systems beneath, and deepen the capacity of global decision-makers and everyday leaders to take wise action.

We all deserve a future
with humane technology.

This new future will require greater collective understanding of the root causes driving extractive systems. It will require deeper empathy for the range of individual experiences with persuasive technology. It will require open minds to connect the dots and develop creative solutions. And it will require all our unique contributions.
