alternative.camden is a new type of innovation district for London co-founded by CTU, Euston Town, Dark Matter Labs and Future Cities Catapult. alt.cmd is a test vehicle for prototyping a new type of economy powered by technology for the common good. The goal is to develop a new type of local, democratic institution for public good and innovation within the city.
It is up to us to remould the digital revolution we’re living through towards a radically more democratic, transparent and equitable future. We are still at the beginning of this journey, with some initial ideas about what this new open institution would be like. That’s where you — all of you — come in. If you’re actively engaged in your community, passionate about a challenge or injustice, are working within the Camden/Euston/King’s Cross area, or if you have an idea about how technology can help shape a more an alternative future for Camden — we want to hear from you.
