After 10 weeks, of everything we can to get true the missions, is the time to see what really happen after we complete the missions. I have to say that every week I learned a lot.1° Week - Mission: Social Innovation
I search and found the e-mail address of my role model James O´Brian, Principal of BCAM and I wrote to him.
Result: He never respond to the email. :-(… Continue

We want to describe women’s lives after ten years. So we choose two of our classmates who have different personalities and imagine their lives after ten years.
First we want to talk about is Wendy. She is outgoing and always looks on the bright side. So maybe one day she will become a program hostess. She has a male manager. She doesn’t have to bring anything by herself because all of the things will be done by the manager. And every time she goes to a place, there are thousands of… Continue

I imagine that in 10 years time my town will certainly have developed its skills in keeping the environment clean. This is why more trees have been planted.
Plus, we will also have resolved our water problems that sometimes we have during the summer, thanks to collaboration among us by raising funds to build a great container of water that fills up with rain water.
Here is the map, sorry for the bad quality but this is the first time I've ever used Google maps.… Continue

Although I've had friends caught in the middle of natural disasters (the Los Angeles earthquake and the Prague floods), most of my personal experience of threat has been from people rather than nature. From being near Detroit and having a father working in the city during the riots in the 60's, to sharing a neighborhood with warring gangs in Los Angeles in the late '70's and early '80's, to living half a mile from the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, everything I've… Continue

Most of the problems addressed so far in Evoke come down to how resources are allocated. The issue of 'unfairness' crops up in many blog posts. I want to solve a real-life dilemma that goes beyond fair, beyond who 'deserves' help, and which comes down to someone having to make a decision about which babies will die unnecessarily this year. If possible, I want to try and minimise the relevance of money to this issue and embrace all the other forms of capital out there - especially social capital… Continue

In 2020, I envision myself living in a self-sustained, technologically advanced city in a global resource-based economy (RBE). Politics and the notion of nationalism of the present have been long abolished, eradicating the present-day problems of corruption, crime, poverty and war. In its place, a global RBE, where decisions are arrived at through the integration of the world's knowledge databases, enables Humanity to use its amazing capabilities to solely advance the human and environmental… Continue

I feel power outages would have the biggest impact in my area. We have evolved as a society that relies on machines to clean our waters from disease, process our foods, keep us warm or cool, entertain us, connect us, and give us a sense of 'all is well'. With power, we can solve virtually any problem or overcome any obstacle.
I saw this during Hurricane Juan that hit my city in 2003. The darkness across the city, people trying to find some form of comfort, the… Continue

The problem is all I have are chords and a basic… Continue

one of the most important actions that must happen in a major disaster is communication. information must be both delivered to a wide area and be aggregated into meaningful data.
Ushahidi is an innovative and useful system. however, a system is only as resilient as the systems it relies upon. what happens when the phone lines and mobile phone towers are not working (as is the case with many disasters)? perhaps we should be considering lower tech… Continue

I found Money Traces
to be the creative solution that will make the biggest change in how we use money, because it helps us to know better what we are buying and enables us to make better choices regarding what we buy so that the world will be a better one.
