Me, Myself and I .. In 2022 =)

In ten years I see myself with my family in Istanbul, where I work for a successful and globally represented organization.Most of the time I do my work from home so I can take care of my family. Additionally I work in a voluntary social organization for children. My motto is: "Children are our future" ..

Germany - a country who is not affected by hunger and food insecurity has the responsibility to share knowledge about new technologies, agricultural innovations or more efficient production methods

In Germany, only very few people are affected by hunger and food insecurity at the moment. The economic growth, a very low unemployment rate, as well as a stable political environment are just a few reasons for this positive development.

On the other hand, there have been around 12,6 mio people in Germany in 2009 with a risk of being statistically assigned of poverty. Belonging to this group with an income of less than 940€/month most of the people are not affected by hunger and food…

LEARN2 - Rising food prices in western European countries

In my opinion the biggest hazard for food security, especially in western European countries, is the continuous rise of food prices. Compared to the raise in wages you see a dramatic difference between the pace of the raise of food prices and the pace of pay raises. The result is that these people concerned can not buy the… Continue

Masiluleke -- Hope that Technology brings

The Project Masiluleke (meaning "hope" in Zulu) shows the great potential that technology has in public health sector, by delivering HIV/AIDS and TB messages to the general public, providing counseling via cell phone, supporting HIV Self-Testing and keeping patients connected to care. This successful project shows the importance of understanding the crux of one problem, in this case the living situation of HIV positive citizens.

If you have 4 minutes... a short story about Dr. V. and how he tried to cure avoidable blindness.

"Someone who's already tackling the world's biggest problems with creative solutions and entrepreneurial ventures"

Dr. Venkataswamy, nowadays well known through several case studies, totally fits to this description and I would call him my “social innovation hero”.

The Problem:…

As our car parks on the side of the road, one of my friends lets out a squeal. It's my 20th birthday, and tonight we are celebrating. My parents rented a hall for the night and invited all my friends and all the family. Mum bought the food, drinks, decorations, and glow sticks - yes, tonight the only power that we will be using is the stereo for music. No lights. The glow sticks will help us see in the dark. My friends and i step out of the car and walk towards the large hall…

Innovate on existing platforms (We’ve got bicycles and mobile phones in Africa, plus lots of metal to weld. Innovate using that stuff, rather than bringing in completely new tech.)

Mission two Imagine

IMAGINE2

I have just came home to my cozy flat, from a long day of teaching kids about how to survive in the wild. I don't feel like doing too much cooking, beause i am so tired. So me and my flatmate, Taylor, quickly cook up some fried rice using some of the brown rice in the cupboard and vegetables we found in the fridge. It's not a fancy three-course meal, but its enough to fill me up.

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
