CoCo – The World’s First Real-Time Direct Democracy Platform
Hello Everyone… Let’s think BIG for a moment.
There are many great things happening in our world right now.
And there are also some things we need to work on.
War, poverty, inequality, corruption, unjust laws, the rising costs of education and health care… these are just a few of the challenges we are facing.
Maybe you’ve asked yourself, “is there anything I can do to help create a brighter tomorrow?”
As individuals, most of us feel isolated and powerless. We elect our leaders every few years and otherwise have little involvement in government affairs. So many of us feel like there’s little we can do to help steer things in the right direction.
But we already have the means to create positive changes in our societies. It’s called citizen lobbying, and it works!
Citizen lobbying is when we form petitions, hold demonstrations, send emails or write letters, anything which makes our wishes known directly to our elected officials.
There are many examples of this achieving great things throughout the world, even revolutionary changes.
However, our current means of citizen lobbying are slow and require a LOT of effort. So most of our great ideas never get off the ground.
Fortunately, there IS an easier, faster, and more effective way for us to join together and create the changes we want to see in our world.
Here’s the BIG IDEA: A new citizen’s network, one that will achieve the following:
1. Unite us with new friends in our own local, regional, and national neighborhoods, to form highly focused and powerful groups for growth and change.
2. Empower us to create initiatives and campaigns so we can share our best ideas with others and obtain support, through voting. This will ensure the very best ideas are brought to everyone’s attention where they will grow into something amazing.
3. Connect us directly to our elected officials in government, to open a real-time dialog so that, together, we can carry out the best solutions to the many challenges we face.
Do YOU have a great idea to make your community or country a better place to live? Do you want to help support and realize the amazing ideas of others? Then this is YOUR platform, YOUR opportunity to make it happen!
We believe that a citizen’s network should also be interesting and fun to use. So this platform will also have the best features we’ve come to expect from a social network, such as personal profiles, friending, and the ability to share thoughts, pictures, and links in our personal news feeds. This will enable us to come together in like-minded online communities and enact real changes in our world.
We are a group of software developers and passionate advocates of social change who care deeply about our future. We are asking for YOUR help in realizing our shared dream of a better world. So we are seeking crowd funding support to help cover some of our costs to finish building this new citizen’s network, after which time it will be absolutely free to set up and use for any country on the planet.
