A crash course in changing the world.
I think the season 2 of the EVOKE network should trackle the same problems of season 1 and more interesting topics like the local environment, human rights, rising poverty and bad work conditions. Then we schould motivate the participants to more action. Because only collecting solutions does not move much. Furthermore in my opinion the next EVOKE should especially try to reach the countries and areas in which those problems often occur.Because they are the people who really know about the…Continue

I interviewed many friends of mine by asking them what they know about city resilience and especially in Brunswick. Most of them mentioned the still existing bunker built during the WW2. They should protect the citizens while bombing attacks. When I asked whether they know about more examples of city resilience in Brunswick, no one had an answer.

On the UN womenwatch I found the new story "American girls raise awareness and money to fight child marriage in four countries", including an very informative interview with Gina Reiss-Wilchins, Director of the Girl Up campaign.
