Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Anyone interesting in pooling ideas, working jointly, etc.. to brainstorm effective social projects we can start doing the groundwork for and hopefully through networking and this site make some headway in a few months to really launc things please post.

 

I have always been interested in a project that allows African youth an opportunity to kind of break out and empower themselves, so a project that teaches them how to start a fishing business rather then just how to fish or handing out fish. 

 

************************

 

This is awesome, just the volume of reception.  This site definitely gives us an opportunity to start working with others who are just as passionate and interested in change as ourselves so we need to take advantage of that fact to the max.

 

But back to business- I would really like to start an NPO that acts more or less as a social innovation thinktank. Basically we would accept any and all ideas anywhere around the world concerning projects focused on development, aid, etc..  We would screen those ideas and try to help propel them forward either through funding or guidance or networking, etc..  I don't think enough groups exist which focus on the general, on helping others with drive and expertise to turn their ideas into a reality to tackle a specific problem.  Furthermore, this NPO could allow for cooperation between projects it sponsors, for example two groups working on a med or economic project could focus on the specifics while collaborating on the big picture.

 

What do you guys think?

 

I'm going to start looking at the ground work for the NPO, outlining a charter and website, etc.. Meanwhile check out my blog, I'll have a post just for that and try to start working with anybody who is interested in the idea.

A lovely idea Agent Langmack. How might you facilitate this?
That is the difficult part of the idea and I will probably plan it out a little further so that the concept stands as an EVOKATION until May 12th.
I think it would be easiest as a "grass-root movement" webpage. Means everybody could upload videos or other media. But that was just an idea I had while reading this discussion. Of course everybody is welcome to develop it with me together as this is the goal of this thread and of evoke.
This sounds like a great idea! I would love to be a part of it in some way.

I've always thought that sometimes people just need the right mentors and support behind them to succeed and this could really fill in that gap in developing countries.

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

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
