This is for a community initiative. I initially thought of pan-action but this would have more to do with the idea of something global or widespread. Also, con-action doesn't sound right with the alternative meaning of the "con" particule. Do you have any suggestions in terms of a word or perhaps short paraphrase ?

Why not teamwork? – bib Aug 29 '12 at 0:33
You're asking for a neologism? That makes it pretty open-ended, anyone could make up anything. But how about 'crowdsource'? I guess its specific meaning is probably not what you're after. – Gaston Ümlaut Aug 29 '12 at 3:28

If you don't like collaboration, you could try one of its synonyms, like team effort.

If you are looking for a neologism, I'm game to coin something. I am trying to tie in your sketch of a concept with the trend in newly minted combinations. I came up with "crowd-burst".

It should then follow that the use of shills in the crowd (to promote joint action) would become 'crowd-seeding'. I like it. :| – coleopterist Aug 29 '12 at 7:23
