Turil Cronburg commented on James Hester's blog post Highlights of Leeds in 2020
"I agree, the DIY Institute is something that needs to happen! :-) Go for it! My own evokation is similar, with the goal being locally built "clubhouses" or at least donated spaces in other buildings for people to collaborate on getting…"

Turil Cronburg commented on James Hester's blog post Storytelling For Social Change
"Indeed! Storytelling is what we all do, we just don't always realize it. And paying attention to what kinds of stories we're telling ourselves and the world is so helpful in writing a better future for everyone. :-) Also, you might like…"

Turil Cronburg commented on James Hester's blog post Getting people to act (or not)
"I'm not sure that that's quite what he was talking about. His description of helping people calm down when they didn't need to be so panicked, he said that it was mostly about listening, not giving them tons of information. He was…"

Freelance Innovation: The EVOKE Manifesto

We are EVOKE.We are the best and brightest in every discipline from every walk of life in every part of the world.We are here to save the world when it is in danger, and to help it to thrive when it is peaceful.We go to work when those that the world puts in power to care for them either cannot or will not.We do not live in ivory towers, but rather in houses, flats, trailers, tents and shanties amongst you, that we may know what you need rather than what we think you need.We do not acknowledge…See More

"James - I really like the idea of putting this all in a searchable database, and Mita, a visualization of it would be spectacular. I hope you can do it, Nathaniel!"

Mita Williams commented on James Hester's blog post The Future of the EVOKE Network
"Thanks for the suggestion about putting Evoke material into a more searchable database. I think it would be fascinating to run all the evidence through a visualization tool to find connections that we haven't even uncovered yet."

The Future of the EVOKE Network

As a new-comer to Social Innovation, I was astounded by the way that EVOKE succeeded in amassing such a huge and diverse team of thinkers and doers united under a common set of basic goals. I am grateful for the experience for two reasons: for giving me the inspiration and motivation to think about ways that I myself could make a difference in the world around me, and for creating what is now doubtless an immense database of visions, projects and solutions for the benefit of the rest of the…See More

The Survivor Network for Pandemic Management

Vinay Gupta, in his 'Gupta Option' series, wrote a piece called 'Severe Panflu Response Strategies' which can be found here: http://guptaoption.com/6.SPRS.phpThe portion I seized upon is:The Survivor ReserveThere are a wide range of scenarios in which the only resource one can count on having more of during the progress of a pandemic is survivors. In a severe pandemic flu scenario, the survivors must be rapidly promoted into the front line of…See More

Getting people to act (or not)

Of the 'Five Secrets of Crisis Communication', I found myself most intrigued by Point 2: Covering Risk.So often I see people being complacent when they shouldn't be, and conversely panicking when they need not do so. The solution presented by Neiman is quite simple and obvious if you think about it, but nonetheless does not get used by leaders and the media as much as it probably should.If you want people to not be concerned about a situation that they really need not be overly concerned with,…See More

Hanna Brady commented on James Hester's blog post Storytelling For Social Change
"I write stories, so I am absolutely biased in favor of the power of storytelling. This is a brilliant video. The departmentalized nature of the US education system and the devaluing of the arts is frightening, so it's always good to see people…"

Mita Williams commented on James Hester's blog post Storytelling For Social Change
"Thanks for the link to the TED talk on storytelling. Some of my favourite books have to do with storytelling and so I'm such I'll appreciate that talk."

The sword is more than just a weapon of war. Many cultures around the world also use it to symbolize the ability to cut through ignorance, illustion, or obstacles. The serpent represents Wisdom. Thus, the symbol is the sword, tempered by wisdom,…
