In order to get people participating and helping, actions required of them should be either meaningful and rewarding to them, or low-threshold and easy to do. Or ideally, both. Let's create an online platform (working title: Collaborant) where people can 'pool' the little things they are happy to do, and by doing this collaborate on larger tasks by doing things that are meaningful or easy (or both!) for them. Collaborant will be built so that it is natural for people to break the big problems into small, actionable, concrete tasks. Read on for a more detailed description and examples.
