In Evoke 2 it should be opened a mission every week. This time you could read all missions at the beginning. I think this would be more exciting and motivating.
There are so many problems which have to be solved. For example how can you help people in countries with political turmoil?
How can you convince people to do something voluntary?
Improvements: I think there are a lot of opportunities to improve the system. For example why should i log my evidence again when i sent…Continue

Glen Nowak, Chief of Media Relations with the CDC explains the five main challenges to crisis communication:
1. Most scientists believe that news media articles should have the same standards as scientific journals which is of course unrealistic because in the news media headlines and articles have to be eye-catching and thrilling for to attract the attetion of the potential customer.
2. Education is not the only purpose of news reporting. That means a single article can only be…

I had hoped that season 2 would cover topics like the protection of wildlife, the constantly increasing criminality, the hopelessness among the European youth, especially in southern Europe, and the increasing divergence of social cla**** regarding financial means, but since the season 2 of Evoke is out already and the focus of season 2 is on trash, i would like to see those topics covered in season 3.
Moreover, Urgent Evoke had some technical deficiencies, which were quite…Continue

I met up with a few classmates, to tell you that we can help one girl with better access to education.
We thought that if we each give a little money, then this may be enough to help in the construction of a building in one of the countries of Africa. We decided to give as much as you want, and if possible send the money to the organization occupying education in Africa. As soon as I find such an organization in the interenet it will try to forward them the money.

I would advise people involved in water crisis to focus more on those economic areas where it is used a lot of water in order to find a more economical way to water consumption. Particular attention is paid to agriculture, because there are not always rational use water.

The perfect thing to do with an old watermill.
Pros: Unlike photovoltaics and wind, a more steady supply of power. Less controversial than large-scale hydro electric because significant damming and storage of large quantities of water is seldom needed.
Cons: You'll need a nearby river.
Nevertheless, I think it's a good idea for alternative energy at home.

During a pandemic, any person of any profession could help. Because in today's world almost everyone has access to the internet from a mobile phone or computer. During a pandemic, people might shoot video or take photos on their mobile phones or other electronic devices and send them to the doctor for a speedy and timely delivery of information.
So can quickly take the necessary measures.

For it's next season, EVOKE should tackle problems related to children - like child slavery or poverty. Although child problems are closely related to world problems in general, they are a special target group who needs a lot of attention. Children are the ones who will built our future and therefore highly important. One has to show them how to live a respectful and useful life. Furthermore EVOKE could tackle problems which are related to globalization. In Europe, there are huge problems…Continue

A lot of the problems and missions can be solved in the second season. I would direct attention to the problems of Asia. There, as in Africa, there are many unresolved social problems. In the second season I would have made it possible for agents to play more opportunities by providing them with contact details of officials who are responsible for various problems. Perhaps some of the agents wanted to talk personally with these officials, to imagine the problems in the countries closer.

I have a lot of fun to play Evoke.
For me it was a good experience to learn more about the problems in the world. Mostly we take care of our own problems and see not the real big problems. So Evoke was very helpful to open my eyes.
I think Evoke should tackle the poorness and help people who have no home or no perspective to change their life. They need our help to get out of their difficult situation.( Ideas to build new homes or help them to find good work.)
I would call…

I think one of the next problems evoke should deal with are the new ways for communications. What are the rules in social media portals, what is necessary to making the public more aware of the problems, chances and rules in relationships via internet?
How many web is good for us, what should we extending… for what we should better not use the web… How can we deal with the opportunities the web gives us?
Furthermore, everybody needs to make his own decision about dealing with the…
