Game 1: Free the Children as an example of Spark

Free the Children (http://www.freethechildren.com/) was founded by my hero Craig Kielburger (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=10150131340630083&topic=13911#!/craigkielburger) in 1995 at the age of 12. At that point he gathered 11 school friends to start fighting children labor.



Now Free the Children has build more than 500… Continue

Canada Helps

The Canadian Charity website, "Canada Helps", was started by a group of school friends who wanted to find a way for Canadians to make all of their charitable donations online, by going to one site. Sounds like a no-brainer now, but this was back in the late 90s, when the majority of charities did not have an online presence, and most donors were afraid of making financial transactions online. To me, this is an example of many of the EVOKE powers, but… Continue

Capacity building with role play

I was involved in a programme with PRADAN, an NGO of eastern India. We had jointly organized some capacity building programmes. Those gave me an insight that capacity building for farmers is really really tough. Earlier we used to have mainly classroom lectures for farmers and in one day we intended to give them the universe in one day touching…

Game1 Resourcefullness

At the local science fair, I saw one kid have a project that demonstrated resourcefulness AND addressed what I see as two problems in the region. He 'Macgyvered together a vertical wind turbine from plastic bins that was tied to an electric generator.



It wasn't so much HIS display of resourcefulness as his understanding of the dual problems and opportunities in rural Alaska. Stuff that's brought in here doesn't leave. Broken snow machines, cars, anything and everything in that in the… Continue

Morning Star Fishermen - Attaining sustainability and teaching others to do the same.

Morning Star Fishermen is a brilliant example of the Evoke Power of sustainability from my neck of the woods. I believe that their example provides both local insight and an incredible opportunity to other Agents in the Evoke network!

They are a nonprofit organization that was formed in 1993 by Hans Geissler and his wife, Sigrid. They bring in people from Central America to teach them sustainable methods of raising Tilapia, but more than…

Collaboration



Collaboration is by far my favorite power. I firmly believe that by working together we can aim higher than ever before! By working in collaboration with someone, one gains a completely new perspective of the task at hand as well far more insight. Never underestimate the power of collaboration!…

THE GAME

Spark:



for me, this is about a person who may not be a genius, or have billions of dollars, but just has an idea, the spark. this one idea can spread (just like a spark on a piece of paper), until it turns into a much bigger thing, and can end up helping so many people, EVEN IF THE ORIGINAL PERSON CAN'T GET IT MUCH FARTHER

Look no farther!

People in developing countries often look to the West for examples of progress and innovation instead of looking at their own backyard. Many can easily name the tallest building in Chicago without a blink of an eye but fall from the sky if you tell them that the architect of the building was a Bangladeshi, a man whose design since has revolutionized construction of skyscrapers.


A few years back when we first started talking about Corporate Social Responsibility…

Courage: one of the greatest traits!

Couarge is the ability to act or speak out in the face of adversity, danger, failure or personal loss. In any setting courage is a great trait to have. It is difference between action or inaction and success or failure. With it we can create change, without it the status quo will remain. Without that first step of courage we cannot start to collaborate or implement resourcefulness.



Some say that they are naturally timid and lack courage. However, we all have the albility to be… Continue

Vision: Helping hand of humanity

Vision is an excellent candidate, I think, for this game. Vision has the power to set standards, to alter the future and to inspire self and others to accomplish great things.



"Virgin Galactic" was the vision of Sir Richard Branson back in 2004. He wanted everyone to view outer space at low costs, so he made the private space tourism company, Virgin Galactic. The space fleet on V.G. consists of 7 vessels that can carry a… Continue

GAME1: the power of Sustainable Development thinking

I couldn't choose any other term than SUSTAINABILITY, for my power evocation.

If you still don't know what a power evocation is, take a look at this.





First of all, I would point out for a while the reason why I actually prefer speaking of "sustainable development", instead of just "… Continue

GAME1 - Catch the "I Can" bug

Imagine a world where children create and implement ideas that can have life changing results. I am not talking of teens nearing adulthood....I am talking about 6-7 year olds, maybe even younger.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. 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.
