Nokia and Tim Kring, creator of the popular TV series Heroes, today unveiled Conspiracy For Good (CFG), which they described as “an inaugural movement that blends online and real-world tasks to effect social change through audience participation.”
 
It is similar to the online social networking game Urgent Evoke and, according to Nokia, users will become part of the plot development to discover the tools required to produce social change in the real world.
 
The fictional plot follows the exploits of the members of Conspiracy For Good that are performing acts of kindness behind the scenes within the world’s most dangerous and neglected regions. 
 
They are under ferocious attack by Blackwell Briggs, which is a London-based multinational corporation dedicated to advanced infrastructure development as well as security services. 
 
“I believe that storytelling has the power to create positive change in the world,” explained Heroes creator Tim Kring. “Audiences today want to be more involved in stories. Our goal with the Conspiracy For Good is to entice, engage, and inspire the audience to drive real-world change through their participation in a narrative.”
