GLOBAL CHANGE APP
‘Rise in population, energy crisis, lack of food, endangered animals and deadly diseases in Africa. These are the most important issues currently facing our planet. What if you could share your opinion on these issues? What if you could influence our planet?’
The Global Change App is a concept for a social network, representing a radical solution for a better future. The project offers a new and discursive solution to build online democracy. The app aims to give its millions of global users a new and direct way to change the world: solutions to global problems are presented in the form of questions that users can only answer with “YES” or “NO”. The changes are then implemented according to the global vote. With this reductive attitude, making a global change will become easier than ever before.
Every week the Global Change app sends its users a YES-or-NO question about the most important issues facing our planet. The question proposes a possible change to solve a global problem. Global Change users are given the chance to educate themselves within relevant problems and then - Action! Choose “YES” or “NO”. The users decide how a change should be made. After voting, the votes are gathered and the change is executed - or not. Every change, however controversial, is made based on a instantly collected and global democratic vote. The changes are financed by the Global Change community. Each member contributes a monthly fee that goes directly into the change. The bigger the community, the more is changed! The Global Change App also offers its users a ‘win-win’ credit-system within the financial structure that will allow users to earn profit through investing in the App. ’Investing in change’ can actually earn you a profit - if your choices are the right ones. By representing a potentially huge economic incentive, global democracy makes even more sense. By making profit, democracy pays off!
