We are a team of people who care about the city we live in and believe that our active everyday behavior can have an impact on the problems our city faces. Problems like indifference, isolation, poverty, rudeness, ignorance, pollution or simply misery. That's why 2 years ago we created City of Errors, a video-blog where we share videos about active citizens and the things they do to care for the city and each other.
Now we want your help to turn our video-blog into a social network where users will be able to upload their own stories on how they try to make their city a livable place. Stories told by the photos and videos you upload on our website and that others will be able to share, rate, like and contribute to.
What We Need
Up to now City of Errors has been running 100% on volunteer work. And we have exhausted all our skills, even the new ones we got working on this project. Now we need your help to raise 22.000$ (16.000 Euros). By donating you will help us complete the tools we've been working on and get ready to pass them to the users, who will turn this project into a social network for better cities. Your contribution will help us to:
Hire the pros that will turn our website into a fun interactive experience rather than another WordPress site.
Promote and develop further our smartphone app and promote it worldwide.
Update some of our equipment, hire some extra hands and make more videos like these.
Edit a feature documentary film called Life in a City Full of Errors. A film about the people who form part of the solutions rather than the problems of our city.
Is this a project about our city or every city?
City of Errors is a platform dedicated to the creation of livable cities. It was born in Athens, a city full of errors, because it needed it a lot. We needed it a lot. We needed to connect with those who had not accepted the idea of living in decadent cities. And who fought against indifference. In every aspect of city life.
We realized that we are not alone. That there is many of us all over the world. People who refuse to leave their street, neighborhood or city to turn grey and lonely.
Our aim is to give every citizen of every city the space in our platform to share ideas, examples and lessons on how to be part of the solutions rather than the problems of our city and any big city.
To show to the entire world that it is the simple little things we do that make cities livable and vibrant.
Cities are defined first and foremost by our behavior.The decisions we do or don't take. And it's often what we don't do that makes us part of the problems of our cities. Sometimes we need a little push. A reason or person that will show us how to be considerate, giving, responsible or simply active human.
Your contribution will help us complete the tools that give that push that so many of us need. Fun, engaging and interactive tools.
Cities cannot change overnight. But we believe that others' stories, can affect the way we act. See the world differently. Even reshape our behavior. And a change in behaviors can ultimately bring a change to our cities.
