women engage

I belive that women should have equal rights and be treated equily what ever their colour, race or belifes and should be able to votes and be on the front line in everything, In a country in the middle east women only got the rights to vote in 1970 which i think is stright stupid as these women are proably smarter than the men running the country

The future of money

I am reporting on a new currency that is compatible with every item that you need credit cards for (or gift cards.)
It solves the problem of wasting time, going to the shops, finding gift cards, purchasing them, going home and then having to redeem them. It also saves having to give away credit card details

The future of money

There are some very good money ideas out there such as trading mobile phone top ups and a form on currency on Craigslist. I believe this could possibly help different economies and could be the future of money.

EVOKE - Make a difference

EVOKE is the way for youth to get their thoughts out about the problems in the world and how to fix them. It sparks creativity, vision, knowledge and shows students how things work in other countries. The missions are sent out weekly and are based on different worldwide problems. Each mission involves imagination, learning and acting on the problem. EVOKE students discover what it means to think and act on something important.

Pandemic outbreak

My student army gather round as I go over the plan again. We are to take resposibility of each retirement home in the city, making sure that the flu doesn't get into the elderly who are weaker than most. Another group has taken care of the infant area at the hospital and several nurseries around the city. Equipping ourselves with masks and sanitiser we go to work!

When I am 100

To my children, my grandchildren and my great grandchildren

Growing is a way of life that we all should have. Taking care of your natural surroundings. Do not let nature wither around you. Protect the last of the rainforest. Eco - friendly is one of the most important things of this age as we still destroy nature wherever we walk.

The new garden city

Wow it has been a busy time for Christchurch! Because of the earthquakes so much has changed. But thankfully we have retained our nickname 'the garden city'. Builders are just finishing up the last of the houses and the plans for the new eco-friendly shopping centre and libraries are halfway through development. It is so great to see my city becoming normal again. The shipping container shopping mall has remained as a memorial and the new cathdrael looks amazing despite the critics.

2020 in a Sudan bakery

Sabira felt a wave of heat on her face she opened the oven door. She quickly took out the brown loaf, wrapped it in brown paper. She had been working at this bakery ever since she was fifteen. She remembered the kind faces of the white people who helped build it. How one woman showed her how to work the oven and how even though they didn't live their they came to help. She passed the loaf of bread over to her mother who exchanged it for a few coins to the man at the front of the shop. When…

Season 2

I have loved EVOKE and even though it has been a lot of work it is worth it!
The next target audience should be teens AND young adults. Young adults are old enough to go out into the world and act in the places that desperatley need it.
As a issue to target I think that there can be more focus on sustainability. It was a great power this season but I think it needs to be focused on a little more.

Crisis communication

Trust in authorities will prevent people from panicking. It will enable individuals to better cope with their fears, act more rationally, and support each other. It will allow people to accept more drastic measures such as quarantines and school closings.

I think this is one of the best secrets because it teaches that in a crisis there needs to be someone in charge. Otherwise people start making rash descions and things get worse.

If there is an authortive figure who is not…

Community forestry

Community forest ownership: Key to sustainable forest resource management -- The Gambian experience

Over the years the thick forrests of Gambia have slowly withered due to human forestry leaving wastelands in their footsteps. As this was a detteriorating problem a community forestry was developed. Together the local community made descions on land use and quantities of forrest planted and cut down. This clarly shows that communities can take responsibility for things that are placed…

Civil Defence

As my city has recentley been in a time of crisis basically everybody knows our plan. But I know that even I didn't know about the civil defence before the first earthquake struck. I doubt that many citizens knew what to do and where to go. I think that people around the world need to be educated about such things otherwise in times of crisis things would become even more chaotic due to lack of understanding on what to do.

Ushahidi in New Zealand

I think that if there is Ushahidi in Christchurch then the risk of lives lost in future earthquakes would reduce. Ushahidi could help SAR teams find those stuck under rubble much quicker. If we had Ushahidi in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes then I believe the death toll would have dropped significantly!

Women rights

Twitter is quite useful for spreading the word. I, myself have started to post facts about womens rights, how they are treated in what we thought were civilised countries! I hope that when people read what goes on in their neighbouring countries then they will do something about it. If more people know about this then more can be done to stop it.

Bringing CEDAW to life: the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women turns 30

For three decades, the 23-member Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women has worked to bring the landmark Women’s Convention (CEDAW) to life. In response to the Committee’s review and recommendations, governments have changed their laws, policies and approaches to women in line with international gender equality goals.

After investigating this story I discovered that over the 30 years that the CEDAW has been in bussiness 30 countries now have at least 30% of their…

Blackboard bank

My family and I have invented the Blackboard Bank. A system used in our family to keep track of pocket money. Instead of handing over cash every week we just simply chalk it up on the blackboard. This system is a great way of keeping track of savings and ensures that we do not lose it!

Community Bank

I think community banking is a great idea! It does the same thing as a normal bank except there is no cost, no big corpratism company behind it and it is local. Community banking is a great way fto save for those who live in poorer countries.

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
