People over Profit

People Over Profit is an online knowledge library and campaign builder for fighting privatisation of public goods coming at the end of 2017.

We aim to connect organisations fighting privatisation, empower campaigners, share best practices and provide a tool to foresee privatisation trends.


Sounding the alarm on dangerous public-private partnerships (PPP’s).

Oct 12, 2017.

Public Services International, EURODAD and other CSO partners jointly urge all those concerned with justice, equality, sustainability and human rights to resist the encroachment of PPPs and to push instead for high-quality, publicly-funded, democratically-controlled, accountable public services. The well-being of our communities and societies depends on it!

Find the right content

Powerful tagging taxonomy

People Over Profit’s knowledge library can be filtered by combinations of predefined tags: topics, sectors, locations (countries) and actors (multinationals privatising public goods) as well as by organisations that submitted content.

All campaigns, resources and events can be filtered by date and language. Currently our UI fully supports English, Spanish & French, as well as localised content inside library.

A rich source of information

News, documents, studies & multimedia

From detailed case studies, to current news across the world, documents, videos, podcasts and galleries regarding privatisation of public services, resources in the knowledge library are available in three languages.

POP automatically searches targeted websites, social media and newsfeeds pulling relevant information into the platform.
