The world is more connected than ever, but there’s a disconnect in solving global challenges.
There are millions of solutions and initiatives, but no infrastructure and no clear overview of them.
We are building Acter to enable initiatives and solutions to scale and change the world.
Enabling anyone to take action towards a world
that works for everyone.
Today, we’re proud to be partnering with some of the world’s fastest-growing organisations. Helping them empower their teams across the globe to realize their full potential and change the world together.
BOTTOM UP APPROACH
We want to make mass participation easier and add more power to people pushing for change.
Humans are the foundation
In Acter we build digital tools to support humans. Our design is human-centered and
We base our work on needs not assumptions and spend time with users and their work.
Purpose over profit, always
We do not build Acter to create profit, we create profit to build Acter. Our human values goes before finances and we do not sell user data. We do not advertise. We do not sell business shares.
We are an ecosystem, everything is connected
Global challenges are complex in nature and require a systems approach. Everything is connected and we need each other to transform our world for the better.
Trust and responsibility
We build trust by being present, consulting each other, taking responsibility. We learn from mistakes and help each other.

What is Acter
Acter is an organisation that builds and runs a digital platform for initiatives working for a more equal, peaceful and regenerative world. In the platform you find tools for organizing, getting an overview, sharing knowledge, doing projects and events, and communicating.
How is Acter different from other platforms?
Acter is different because it is built to increase activity in the real world, not to keep you hanging around online. Acter is built to give an overview of all the different initiatives working for a better world. Through overview and collaboration tools, Acter helps to reduce double-work and increase engagement and activity to scale solutions for global challenges.
Who owns Acter?
Acter is owned by the community who work directly with building the platform and onboarding users. Acter builds on a cooperative model where it is the community who owns and runs the organisation. This means that we make all decisions in Acter ourselves with our volunteers, co-workers, co-leaders and and are not depending on outside investors in our management.
Who can use Acter?
Acter is for anyone working with solutions to global challenges who is looking to bring their work into a community. Acter has a free plan that is available for anyone forever. We work with civil society, public bodies, research and education organisations, as well as the private sector.
How does Acter run financially?
Acter has a number of different revenue streams, firstly, we have received innovation funding to start our development and operations, secondly we have network partnerships who support our development, and finally platform licenses, where users pay to use the platform.
