About Digital Action

Digital Action  bring people and ideas together to strengthen democracy in a digital age.

Democracy and human rights can thrive in the digital age, but only if we work together to ensure it is the
people writing the rules, not unaccountable Big Tech.

In this digital age, the rules and norms of democracy are being transformed, and it is Big Tech that is
rewriting them, not the people. These companies, with staggering power and little accountability, are
reshaping the way democracies work, simply to boost their advertising revenues. The result is a democratic
experience, particularly online, that is toxic and unreliable, inflaming divisions and intensifying inequalities.

But we are not powerless in this. Together, we can build a new era of accountability.
