The Foundation aims to promote, finance, support and contribute to the development of open urbanism in the spirit of Geneva.

It encourages continuing education, open innovation, ecology, design by use, knowledge sharing, resource pooling, consultation, collaborative design and citizen participation to promote the development of territories.

The Foundation works as a digital conservatory in the service of open urbanism; it ensures the archiving, sharing and durability of the non-human commons and of all the methods, source codes, designs and data that result from them. It constitutes a publicly accessible information heritage placed under a legal regime compatible with this purpose. In doing so, the Foundation favors, as much as possible, viral licenses under the copyleft principle, as well as any other norm or normative framework with equivalent effects.
