It is clear that while some agents are well advanced with their EVOKATION plans other agents may still be wondering what on earth the EVOKATIONs are all about. There is some information on EVOKATIONS in… Continue

Mission 1 - Imagine - Welcome to my world 2020

Seriously its been a mad 10 years. Apart from the fact that England won the world cup exactly 10 years ago now and even more amazingly Team GBR managed to top the London Olympic leaderboard in the same year, my personal life has seen momentous changes.

The first year of EVOKE back in 2010 was an amazing success. We had over 20,000 players by the end of week 10. The quality was incredible and the projects that came out of the EVOKATION process were just earth shatteringly…

Mission 1 - ACT - ISEE

I have developed a friendship with an amazing woman who has set up the Institute for Social Entrepreneurship Education in Manila. Her name is Caroline Burns and I first met her when I worked on the Teenpreneur Project in Manila some years ago. She has set-up this institute to try and bring education to those poor people who live in the Manila slums and who currently receive little or no education at all.

Caroline and I have recently developed a taught program here in the…

Mission 1 - Learn - My secret code for social innovation

I love Ethan Zuckerman’s list of 7 tips for innovation success but was most struck by the first one:

1. Innovation (often) comes from constraint (If you’ve got very few resources, you’re forced to be very creative in using and reusing them.)

Earlier today I was having a discussion with a group of UK university students about the concept of developmental entrepreneurship - that is where developing nations utilise the power of…

Thanks so much ^^ I really appreciate it. In your own way you are all helping me because it's a kind of motivation. I am still thinking about funding, and a more detailed plan of the set-up / actual venue. I have been thinking about various aspects of the project, and will write another post soonish regarding the project and its developments ^^

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

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.
