We imagine a city as an organism of creative and networked individuals who engage together to create a better place for all of them. Therefore we, a three year old research group of students at the Technische Universität Berlin (Berlin Institute of Technology), have developed an innovative approach to foster positive change in society:
A web platform and mobile app enabling you to take action in the real world by revealing problems and goals and spreading them. By having fun while taking over smaller tasks in your neighborhood. Or by joining a bigger group of people and changing the world together. By adding gamifaction style incentives, we are sure to boost the amount of people standing up for a greater cause.

SocialQuest evolved out of a research project in the sphere of civic partizipation and Web 2.0. at (Technische Universität Berlin and started in 2009. The research project analysed how people utilize the web for the presentation and organisation of social projects and came across some great learning’s that end up in the concept of SociaQuest. Since March 2012 there are two funded projects at the institute which developed out of the ongoing research work of about 15 students and university members.
