What are the values of the instance?

We chose to align ourselves with that of the movement.

— A demand for technology and society to re-centre around sustainability, longevity, and balance with an emphasis on renewable energy.

— A focus on decentralisation, community activism, social justice and civic empowerment.

— A recognition that economic, social, and ecological injustices are all deeply inter-connected.
