The community changes name

This community will from now on step by step change its name to freegreentech.org The organisation behind the site (GLI) will still have the same name.

 freegreentech.org is a global online community for the design of environmentally sustainable technology through the principles of community driven collective action, using the way communities like the open source movement, Wikipedia etc. work as our role model. We build on the philosophy that the knowledge of clean, green and sustainable technology should be freely available to the whole of humanity.


It is also our to raise funds to actually build some of the things designed  and  share the practical  knowledge acquired from the building process with humanity for free. We also intend  to test out the building of some of the designs in developing countries using local building traditions, local building materials and local work force.

We do not seek to build this community as a protest group, like so many other environmental organizations seem to be, but rather a community that seeks to gather people who would like to take part in constructive, creative and collective action for a better and more sustainable future through green technology. Our goal is first and foremost to inspire and thrill, to be a group that would like to teach others through our example, rather than being a group telling others what they should not do.

Our community web site runs on the open source content management system, Tikiwiki, version 2.2.

The community accepts members from all over the world. As a consequence the pages will be kept in English, with the exception of some of the forums that will be dedicated to discussions in other languages. Please read our Posting Guidelines for further details about how to participate.

The organisation behind freegreentech.org is Green Life Innovators (GLI for short). This organization is rooted in Norway and is registered at the Norwegian Central Coordination Register for Legal Entities, under the organization number 993 163 872 as a non profit, non governmental organization.

The choice of the names Thunderbird and Firefox is our tribute to the open source software community, not only to the people involved making Mozilla Thunderbird and Mozilla Firefox, but to all people involved in the community driven social production of software that is the Open Source movement.

As with open source software, any member of the community can initiate a new project. Just go to the Projects-page and start a new wiki-page, and a new project is born. The admin will create a new forum for the newborn project when he discovers it. Please send a message to the admin if that does not happen within a few days.
