Branch is an online magazine written by and for people who dream of a sustainable and just internet for all.
We believe that the internet must serve our collective liberation and ecological sustainability. We want the internet to dismantle the power structures that delay climate action and for the internet itself to become a sustainable and positive force for climate justice.
We see this magazine as a space for personal reflection, critical engagement with technology and internet economics, as well as experimentation and storytelling. Creating change requires all kinds of practices—art and design, professional development, civic participation, policy and advocacy, imagination and positive visions for our future. This is our small attempt at sharing what inspires and challenges us towards a sustainable and just internet for all.
Branch is a non-profit magazine. We rely on support from readers and organizations to pay authors and artists and keep the lights on. We want to continue publishing twice a year and enable more analysis and experimentation that others can build upon.
