We envision a different world, in which the ubiquity of information networks and technology allows us to build cooperative communities, service-centered economies, virtual organizations, a more fair society and provide much more freedom to people, through continuous interaction and social exchange of information and knowledge.

<+Awareness>
Common Good and Public Spaces
• • • Citizens create public spaces; but citizens, in order to become social actors (and modify society) need organizations and institutions, whose network form the social fabric. A public space is one which is equally beneficial for everyone, for everyone's dignity Knowing how to organize ourselves and collaborate is the master skill for society, since organized association breeds self-government in society and enables the protection of rights. A certainsociety is as strong as the number of organizations that generate many useful transactions from the political, economic, social and cultural point of view.
