Empowering organisations worldwide to build a sustainable digital future

Today more than ever, we need to reflect critically on our relationship with technology. How do digital technologies impact the way we get informed and make decisions? How can we as a society face the 'side-effects' of an increasingly data-driven world?

At Tactical Tech, a Berlin-based non-profit organisation, we design and co-develop playful and forward-looking experiences, interventions, events and educational resources that invite people to think about how technology influences their lives and changes the world they live in.

Since 2013, we have joined forces with a global network of partners and civil society organisations, collaborating at the intersection of technology, research, design and art on projects that promote conversations and encourage proactive solutions.

We empower communities and individuals to forge lasting digital transformations by building resilience in organisations.

Our work focuses on these areas:

What we offer:

How do we do it?

  • We design and produce creative, award-winning resources that are accessible to everyone

Tactical Tech’s resources and interventions are open-source, adaptable, scalable and localisable, making them accessible to diverse audiences.

Our partners worldwide further develop these resources that combine tech, design, and interactive formats by adapting them to their specific goals and the needs of their communities. Our collaborations enable us to learn from our partners, continuously improving our resources.

  • We collaborate with impactful partners across the world

We work towards a sustainable digital future by working collaboratively and empowering existing social structures – such as libraries, schools, and community centres as well as field influencers, journalists and rights organisations.

During the last 20 years, we built a global network of partners in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin and North America who lead local conversations and transformations around the digital challenges by engaging and involving their communities.

Our work is possible thanks to the support of our founders
