Association for Progressive Communications (APC)

The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) is an international network of civil society organisations dedicated to empowering and supporting groups and individuals working for peace, human rights, development and protection of the environment, through the strategic use of information and communication technologies (ICTs), including the internet. APC's members were often the first providers of internet in their countries. Today, APC continues to pioneer practical and relevant uses of ICTs for civil society, especially in developing countries. APC is an international facilitator of civil society's engagement with ICTs and related concerns, in both policy and practice. APC has been operating as an international, membership-based organisation since 1990.The strong mixture of Southern and Northern organisations, and their combined knowledge and experience of promoting and using ICTs at local, national and regional levels, differentiates APC network and work from many others. APC's value and uniqueness comes from the local perspectives and contact with grassroots organisations that APC gains through contact with, and between, the members.
