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 available online and perhaps later in print as a stand-alone magazine or a supplement for other publications.
The next issue of Branch will be released in fall/winter of 2021.
