Evoking the EVOKE - lets collaborate for real! (an invitation to...)

Building on the food security inspiration, and the enormity and complexity of the task, I have a suggestion...

I have really gained a lot of insights into Africa and enjoyed reading peoples posts... and those un-imaginable insights that come from people who are there. This game is an interesting cross over between social networking / activism / on-line games / etc. It seems to me it can be taken to the next or another different…

Enable Food Security by including it in the "business case for sustainablity"

The hunger map of Africa sums the challenge up... and it leads me to think that what is needed is action.

From my perspective food, farming and production may seem a long way from the industry that I work in - community development and the built environment. But of course the two are completely intertwined. So I am thinking about some of the issues that I have read about over the last few days within Urgent Evoke and some of the opportunities that they represent.

Social Entreprenur - Taddy Bletcher

I know of a brilliant social entrepreneur in South Africa who has really done, and continues to do, some great work. His name is Taddy Bletcher. He founded CIDA http://www.cida.co.za which is a free university in Jo'burg. Quite something when you think about it. It is an amazing story how it started and has gone on to be extremely successful. To reduce the costs the students help to do the work of running the campus and operations. He has persisted with it… Continue

Re-inventing Lagos as an Eco-Sustainable Mega City...

The date is the 30th of March 2020. It seems like an impossible date to me (like imagining the year 2000!).

Back in the year 2010 there was the idea put out there by the Nigerian Institute of Architects that Lagos could be re-invented as an Eco-Sustainable Mega City. As fate would have it I was invited to come and help facilitate this momentous and historic activity... and some started an online game called Urgent Evoke that helped us to radically expand our network (the rest is… Continue

"I love that you've brought this to attention. An extensive database of uncommon but resistant and hardy plants/foods could be developed and organized by climate. Ease of growth and processing should also be taken in to account. I will try to…"

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
