Today, the FUSS Project was added to the Digital Public Goods Alliance DPG Registry. The goal of the DPGA and its registry is to promote digital public goods in order to create a more equitable world. Being recognised as a DPG increases the visibility, support for, and prominence of open projects that have the potential to tackle global challenges. To become a digital public good, all projects are required to meet the DPG Standard to ensure that projects truly encapsulate open source principles.

For us, being recognised as a digital public good - defined as open source software, open data, open AI models, open standards, and open content that adhere to privacy and other applicable laws and best practices, do no harm, and help attain the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) - means confirming our effort in contributing with our project not only to SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) but also to a Democratic Digitalization goal that we see as the missing 18th SDG.
