A crash course in changing the world.
The Evoke network is a dedicated group of individuals working towards a common purpose to create positive social change not only in our communities, but in the world. Every person involved is a change agent that creates solutions to solve the problems that we are dealing with on a daily basis.

I would ask the teachers union in America to contact their students and their parents to inform them of the crisis and what they can do to combat it. Teachers have a connection to millions of people and are a source of knowledge that people will trust and listen to.

In the year 2088 I would like to pass on that we only have been given one environment so it is our job to preserve and protect it. We cannot trash our communities and our planet and expect that nothing negative will result from it. We must step up and do whatever is necessary to keep our planet as pure and beautiful as it has always been.

In 2020 girls and woman will be treated as complete equals to man. There will be the first woman president of the United States elected and woman across the world will become more active in the politics.

A local crisis in North Potomac, MD could be power outages. We have had a problem with power outages during every storm. This causes people to go without electricity for days at a time. When this happens during a winter snowstorm, people are without heat for a week at a time.
I would want to know how much electricity lines we have that are not underground. Moving all power lines underground would eliminate this problem.

The next big challenge that the EVOKE network can try to tackle is equality among everyone, no matter what race or background you come from. It can start this in the US. Even though we are further along than most countries, there is still a lot of work to be done to improve. Every kid in school should do this to create change from a young age. I enjoyed using Urgent Evoke and becoming a change agent.

The most important aspect of crisis communication is maintaining the public trust. Once you lose that, it will be extremely difficult to prevent people from panicking and losing control all together.

I think the most important lesson is that when you give people a choice between two things, they will usually chose the better option. You have to give people a chance to show that they can make the right decisions.

Venmo is an app that allow you to connect your phone to your bank account to make payments to your friends electronically. My roommates and I all downloaded Venmo and have been using it to pay each other for meals, groceries, etc. It has worked really well. The future of money will be more social than its ever been before.

I think the future of money is Bitcoin. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.

I believe that Water for People is the best organization and the one I would be most likely to donate to and be a part of.

EcoSchools teaches students about how we can use water. They study the flow of water across their grounds and look for ways to improve water quality and infiltration. Schools seek to conserve water on their school grounds by: installing low-flow water fixtures in their bathrooms; using drip irrigation systems rather than conventional sprinklers; planting drought resistant "xeriscape" gardens; and capturing rainwater in cisterns and rain barrels for future use on school gardens, trees, and…Continue

It is the year 2020 and I am celebrating Christmas with my family. All of the Christmas tree lights and the lights outside my house are solar powered which really reduces are energy use.

Every phone would have a small solar panel on it so that it would continue to charge every time you took it out of your pocket.

I am at my house in Washington D.C. with some friends for dinner. Our food has been grown organically and was purchased at the local farmer's market. We all collaborated together to prepare our meal. The meal tastes much better than any cheap, gross fast food. We made a veggie and chicken dish.

I helped my friend start a home garden. We are growing multiple vegetables and herbs. He was extremely pleased with it and has decided to help one of his friends start a home garden as well.

Food security is a growing problem all over the world, including North America. The USAID has an innovative solution called Feed The Future. This initiative's goal is to reduce by 20% the prevalence of poverty and by 20% the prevalence of stunted children under 5 years old. Additionally, the USAID is investing in the transformation of agricultural systems and nutritional outcomes. They are doing everything in their power to help the problem of food security.

In 2020 I see myself as a budding entrepreneur in Washington D.C. I want to be making a positive change in my community and help make the world a better place every day. When Alchemy calls, I will do whatever I can to help with the Tokyo food crisis.
