IMAGINE10: World 2.0: EVOKE Manifesto

1. What are the goals of the network? How does it work?

The Network exists for one purpose - social innovation. A lot of things in this world can be improved.

EVOKE is a platform where a community of social innovators can LEARN about the problems and solutions, doc**ent their ACTions, and IMAGINE and better world.

DRC Penal Code

In 2006, the penal code was amended to “prevent and severely reprimand infractions relating to sexual violence and to ensure systematic support for the victims of these crimes.” It is 5 years later and the DRC government has not met these standards. According to the Women’s Watch article the new penal code did not protect a 13 year old girl in Kinshasa after being raped. The girl’s father had to pay 60$ to file a police report. He had to initiate the… Continue

LEARN10: Evoking on Education, Environment and Health

1. WHICH great challenges and social problems should the EVOKE Network tackle next?

Education, Environment Protection and Public Health are the least prioritized sectors in my country (in terms of budget allotment). Yet these three probably have the most long term effects to the nation. Here are some specific issues Evoke could tackle:

  • How to educate out-of-school youths?
  • How to develop new ways to engage students to learn?
  • How to stop/report…

Mind over Matter?

“Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.” - Sun Tzu

 

Although I am not a good comic artist, nor a good user of a storyboear, I have some ideas how EVOKE could proceed.

 

The setting of the first story should be Embers home. Ghana is under martial law. Over 50% of Ghanas population are infected with a pestilence-like desease. One of its victims is a person dear to Ember - a child, her…

IMAGINE9: WORLD 2.0: The Power of Telehealth

December 2011

Manila, Philippines

 

The University of the Philippines Manila National Telehealth Center has been using SMS and Email to connect rural-based physicians since 2006. When the new strain of Influenza scattered all over the globe, no one was safe from panic. Everyone rushed to the health centers. Resources were getting scarce. The country needed a rapid way to disseminate up to date information even to the…

GUEM MISSION 9: IMAGINE: What non-doctors can do in time of pandemic.

When a Pandemic strikes sometimes we need everyones participation, not only doctors. We need to spread information and help others reach safety. My idea would be to create a network of people with specific tasks to ensure the safety of people during a pandemic. They would people of who know each other, perhaps neighbors, members of a church, etc. They would be people with specific knowledge of certain areas.



For example:



My friend Lisa works directly with American Red… Continue

Next Chapter

WHICH great challenges and social problems should the Evoke Network tackle next?

 

Although they are very hard to grasp:  Ethical probems should also be tackled. I think a decline of ethics is a dominating factor for our world being they way it is.

 

WHERE in the world should the network try to build up new EVOKE communities?

 

Almost everywhere (except polar regions, and deserts) because you can improve something everywhere.

Me at the age of 100

When I am 100 years old, the only thing I would like to tell younger generations will be not to panic and hurry so much. And the most important thing: To trust in nature and the ecosystem on their planets! The hardest thing for me to learn in live was letting go. I hope I could teach the younger people a little bit about that very important "laissez-faire" attitude. It really is taking some time to grew something to eat, to raise a tree or to see the fauna grow and you can't quicken that in no… Continue

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.

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
