It’s becoming painfully clear that our digital sovereignty is under serious pressure. How can we ensure that it’s us, the citizens, and not big tech-companies, who decide how our data is collected, stored and used? Is it possible to develop tools that enable individuals to collectively share personal information on their own terms? And if so, how do we design these tools? In light of the European DECODE project, a variety of (inter)national speakers explore the data commons, and the ways in which citizens can use their own data to benefit the city they live in.
