Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

UPDATE: As of 30 Mar 2010 0200 GMT, Round 1 has ended and the results are posted!
This discussion thread will remain open for now, but the round is complete. Thanks to everyone who participated, and watch for Round 2.

Fourteen thousand global agents. Ten thousand blog posts. Twenty four hundred photos and almost a thousand videos. And counting.

Agents, we have a problem. As Alchemy has written: 

"EVOKE was conceived as a crash-course in changing the world.  It is a chance to showcase the kind of resourceful innovation and creative problem-solving that is happening today in sub-Saharan Africa and other developing regions, and to collectively imagine how the lessons from those scenarios can transfer, scale, and ultimately benefit the entire planet."

The resourcefulness, creativity and collective wisdom of the network is here. I know it and so do you. But it is hard to find, and many of our agents know it is hard to be found. Our emergent strengths are hidden within, and we must discover them. This is a hard problem, so let's EVOKE it!

I challenge and welcome you to Round 1 of the EVOKE Treasure Hunt!

Round 1 Objective: Discover and doc**ent high quality original evidence posted by Agents with fewer than 100 power votes, who are playing from the continents of Africa and South America.

How To Play: Find evidence that meets the objective for this round. Doc**ent your discovery in a reply on this discussion thread. Provide the Agent's EVOKE name and the URL of the evidence you are highlighting, along with any explanatory comments you think are necessary.

How Do I Win? The win condition for this challenge is that the entire EVOKE network gets smarter and stronger. You help to achieve this simply by discovering and sharing outstanding original evidence from other players. You personally will receive social capital in proportion to your contributions, and you may also occasionally receive power votes from various Agents.

Just A Few Rules:
1. In this round we are looking only for original evidence created by Agents. Original blog posts, photos and videos are great. We do not want to see evidence that is copied, quoted, or embedded from some other source. 
2. No spamming. We are seeking high quality evidence. Agents who spam the treasure hunt will receive negative social capital.
3. You can discover yourself. If you and your evidence meet the criteria for this round, you are welcome to share it.

I found this post by peggie scott from Liberia and I really think it's interesting and a great initiative: http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/increasing-food-sustainab...
I'd like to introduce you to Agent Alessandra Giabbani of Argentina. While I found a number of her blogs interesting and informative, I was most interested in the local view of the major challenges she saw confronting her country ... Its particularly interesting given that Argentina is considered to be one of the world's important food producers.
This is a true story lived for an agent. I don now is what you asking for but this guy deserve a +100 in courage point. http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/helping-luis-a-local-home... One thing, this agent is Portuguese leaving in Colombia Bogota. Is it count?
The agents we are looking for have to be native of the area or living in the region you told?
Carlos patricio Eyquem, from Chile, has some great stuff posted. Here's a picture of a self-built hydroponic setup that's quite impressive.

Heads up treasure hunters, Round 1 will end today, in a few more hours. Remember, the goal is to discover and doc**ent high quality original evidence posted by Agents with fewer than 100 power votes, who are playing from the continents of Africa and South America.
Jessica Lucas has an interesting idea for promoting exercise and thereby powering your own appliances! Okay, I want a treadmill hooked up to a TV now so I only get that treat while exercising!

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
