Summary

CollAction is the world’s first crowdacting platform, aimed at solving collective action problems like rising inequality, platform monopoly and climate change.

Many of us would like to resolve those issues, but we feel our individual actions are only ‘just a drop in the ocean.’ On our platform www.collaction.org, people commit to a conditional action. It’s like crowdfunding, but instead of donating money, people commit to action. For example: If a million people commit to buying products from fair trade companies, we all do it. Each project has a target to ensure a critical mass of participants take action. As a result, our drops in the ocean become waves.
