We want to acknowledge the sources that inspired our work. To quote from the Data Commons Manifesto, which we mentioned on our Privacy Policy page:

Strong data commons go also beyond regulations and initiatives centered on individual control over personal data by pointing towards the centrality of the collective dimension.

Resuming: there is a need to advance from open data to data commons, from “my data” to “our data”.

The data and knowledge we share on Permapeople.org, is meant to be of, by and for the people.

We want to acknowledge the work of others that came before us and has inspired ours, as we hope to encourage this sense of gratitude, reciprocity and openness and discourage hyper capitalist ways of knowing and being—of exploitation and of being profit-led—over the wellness of our planet and all beings.

We hope you share the same vision of a Data Commons and acknowledge our work here.

Below is a list of the sources of data and knowledge that informed Permapeople.org and their licenses:
