Looking Up


Looking Up” (PwG – from Polish “Patrzymy w Górę”) is an online platform designated to educate, inform and inspire individuals, collectives, and communities about the ongoing collapse of our ecosystem and industrial civilization. It provides easy access to solid scientific knowledge about the reasons for the current state of affairs, given in an accessible format; a constant stream of moderated current information from credible sources; inspiration for community-level action limiting the effects of the progressive dysfunction of technical, economic and social infrastructure.

The PwG programme launches from 1 February 2024, with a project to build a prototype of the platform and selected services to test the operation and provide a basis for the subsequent implementation of a ‘production’ installation. All work results will be made available to the public under an open licence. The work at this stage will be carried out on a volunteer basis and the necessary costs will be crowdfunded (crowdfunding, individual donations). The collective author and coordinator of the project is the community represented by the TePeWu Association.

In line with the dynamics of the TePeWu community, the program’s assumptions and progress will be audited periodically every three months.

We invite interested individuals and collectives to collaborate on the project.

Founders’ message

We felt it was important to separate the urgent need to organize the management of assets, and relationships with allied groups, from the process of community building, which requires calm and a willingness to learn from mistakes.
