Why this is important

After two years of research and many case studies , an exponential growth in people suffering the disorder Memetro has been observed. The Crisis , political corruption , the rising price of transport or mismanagement by directors of the public transport companies are some of the factors that increase cases of Memetro disorder

For affected people :

The implementation of this platform will serve to connect and help all those affected by Memetro . Thanks to the collective intelligence of networked societies we are creating new spaces of resistance. The Memetro warning network in its few years of existence, has managed to subvert the power relations and supervision exercised by public transport companies. Now , thanks to your help the new application and network platforms will be more efficient and exportable to other places.

The expansion of the disorder is inevitable and every day more cities are beginning to suffer from this ailment. So the app is designed so that any city with the need to collectively address the growth of this disorder, can launch an alert network

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

1 - Build an advanced and useful tool that connects all persons affected by the Memetro disorder

2 - Allow any city in the world with cases of the disorder to incorporate an alert system of their public transport network .

3 - Improving the quality of life of people affected by the Memetro disorder

4 - Through new information technology, mutual support and collective intelligence , generate a networked strategy able to force the power to reverse the price increases of public transport systems. Carry out actions to reduce cases of people affected by Memetro .

Raising campaign funds is a key to continue building a strategy of struggle and support for people affected by the disorder.

To design, develop and maintain a network like this takes a lot of effort and time that you should want to reward .

Now more than ever the Memetro platform and those affected by this disorder need your help .

Team and experience

Memetro Cultural Association (ACM) is a non -profit organization formed mostly by people affected by the Memetro disorder . The last 2 years have been devoted to the study and research of the causes and effects of the expansion of this disorder. After early research the Association decided to use new communication technologies, collective intelligence and mutual support as ways to combat the ills caused by the disorder.

Today , having launched a pilot project in the city of Barcelona that has been very well received we have decided to improve and expand the checkpoint detection tool to other cities.

The team consists of several professional designers and progammers affected by Memetro. Together they have decades of experience in the world of art , cultural production , programming and graphic design.

These people have already participated in the research and development of the first phase of the app in collaboration with the production team .

Keeping in account the support team's experience and desire to take this project forward , we are sure that the end result willmeet the needs of people suffering Memetro Disorder .
