my summary

I really enjoyed playing this game. I learned a lot about the different social problems and aspects from all over the world and I think I came up with a few creative solu-tions to a few urgent social problems. Altogether I’m surprised how good this season 1 worked. It should not be forgotten that this was the first season and the site is al-ready in one’s infancy. For Season 2 you should make more advertising for Evoke and I think season 2 will be more successful than season 1.

I hope in… Continue

A Meal from the Future

In the year 2020, it is hard to imagine what life will be like. At the current rate we are going, our negative deficit will outweigh the positive. As far as technology goes, it is expanding at a constant rate so we will definitely have more access to technology in 9 years. I feel that in 2020, I will be on my own with my own family eating in my house. I feel like I will be eating some genetically modified, GMO ridden food that hasn’t been properly tested. I will stare… Continue

Aiding in my Community, and Eventually Global Agriculture.

Over this past week, I become extremely attached to this weeks mission of food sustainability and food security. I am already actively aware of these issues at the international and global level, and it is not always easy to take action from such a vast standpoint. So, this mission gave me a chance to make an impact at the microcosmic level. If everyone in the world impacted someone everyday by either donating money, donating food and helping… Continue

Food Security in Hamilton

I live in Hamilton, Ontario Canada. Homelessness is among many social issues that our city, let alone province faces as we are one of the most poverty ridden cities in southern Ontario. Aside from homelessness, many families are on welfare, and LICO just to support their families. Due to social, environmental, economic and other factors, our food system is changing. Globally, food is becoming more expensive. The food riots around the world in response to the severe price spikes nearly three… Continue

Food Security: IMAGINE

Dear Kids of the Past, August 24, 2020



My name is Rachel Hamilton and I am 27 years old. I want you guys to realize that you are the future. When I was your age I didn’t know a thing about politics, global warming, world hunger, etc. You need to educate yourselves before it’s too late. When I was 18 the world was beginning to face the serious outcomes of global warming and now, 9 years later, we’re suffering for it.

The soil of our Earth needs to be taken care of. When I was 18… Continue

Food Security: ACT

My neighbour is a 92 year old woman, and her children are all grown with families of their own. They try and make it over to her once every other week with groceries and I know that those are all the groceries she gets because she can’t drive herself to the store. Our backyards are only seperated by a small fence, and when I was younger she would always let me come in and pick berries from her fruit/vegetable gardens. For the past few years she hasn’t been able to use her gardens because… Continue

EVOKE: Food Security: LEARN

I am from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada- which is just South of Toronto. Originally when researching food insecurities in my local area I began the search broadly with Ontario before I realized that there are many instances of homelessness and hunger right in my city. Hamilton is home to one of Canada's poorest neighbourhoods: The Beasley Neighbourhood. It has an average per capita annual income of only $6,226. There are many community centres in Beasley to help out those in need. Soup kitchens,… Continue

food

I would try to reach the people who have large inventories of food. E.g. supermarket manager. These need to be informed about intelligent food rationing.

the past

My wisdom would be, to tell how it was in the past, so the people do not forget as it once was. Don't forget the past. I think it is important!

Hero Post

I chose to follow Paula Kahumbu on twitter. I also sent her a twitter message saying "@paulakahumbu I really appreciate what you do for wildlife around the world! I am a member of the evoke game as well as a big animal lover!".The reason I decided to pick her as my hero was because she is trying to make a difference with saving wildlife and the habitats of different wildlife. Animals and the environment are very important to me. Anyone who tries to help animals or the environment is someone I… Continue

Favourite Secret Blog

5.Problems are not always obvious from afar (You really have to live for a while in a society where no one has currency larger than a $1 bill to understand the importance of money via mobile phones.)

The quote above was my favourite secret because it is generally true and applies to more than just the aspect of money. People are constantly taking what they have forgranted. In Canada, most people are fortunate enough to have clean water, and a plentiful amount of food. In comparison to… Continue

Instead of using money that is incredibly hard to come by in this hard economic time we as humans at times need to use other alternative forms of money. For example, the other day I needed a new pair of grappling shorts for my upcoming tournament. However, I didn't have the forty dollars that the shorts cost, so I came up with a new agreement. I agreed with the owner of my gym that I would wash and clean the mats and the bathroom for a week straight in exchange for the pair of shorts. This… Continue

I think microsavings and the creation of Mahila Milan is a brillant idea to help the citizens of Mumbai figure out how to amass some wealth to help better their lives. I also think that a barter system would be extremely beneficial. It would ensure that people receive their goods not only immediately but they also will use these items for every day use. With paper currency you can save it, but is it really doing anything useful just sitting under your mattress or in a coffee can?

The event is in the middle of Copenhagen, and there will be music, a skatepark, different kind of food, contests, and last but not least plenty of free water!
But in the middle of the event, someone will turn of all "water activity" so no one can go to the toilet, and all the music will stop, because a lot of the electricty runs on water.
Then everybody will know how serious a problem it is!

ACT10: EVOKE Season 2 - World 2.0

World 2.0

 

Narrator: When EVOKE was exposed by Alpha, Alchemy knew the Network's curtain will be unveiled anytime soon. The fat lady has sung. It's cast, either awaiting applause, encores...or boos, and rotten tomatoes. EVOKE was able to function because of its secrecy. Now, more than ever, the show must go on...

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
