Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Taylor Nones's Blog (25)


Over the summer Urgent Evoke completed another round of EVOKE for almost 40 classrooms with players from Australia, Bolivia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Morroco, Nepal, New Zealand, Peru, Philippines, South Africa, Taiwan, Uganda, USA, and Zambia. During this phase players created over 2,000 new blog posts.

I’m also writing to inform you that the network will go back into dark…

Close up on Ember, looking at the phone.


Excuse me, class. We’ll pick up this discussion next week.


Ember picks up the phone and opens the laptop secretively as her class files out. In the background, two students whisper as they leave.


What do you bet she pulls another one of her disappearing acts?


This is Ember.

At 100

You can do your part to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables. Buying products with minimal packaging (including the economy size when that makes sense for you) will help to reduce waste. And whenever you can, recycle paper, plastic, newspaper, glass and aluminum cans. If there isn't a recycling program at your workplace, school, or in your community, ask about starting one. By recycling half of your household waste, you can save 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide…

Learn 9

People’s perceptions of various risks differ greatly. How will these beliefs about risk play out in a pandemic? And what is the role of officials and journalists as they deal with both people’s strong emotions and emerging facts as they communicate with the public? Peter Sandman, an expert in risk communication explains why risk truly has two elements—hazard and outrage—and why understanding them both is crucial to crisis communication as well as pandemic journalism.

Note: Below are…

Mission 8 Imagine

Any expert in crisis communication will tell an inquiring reporter that maintaining public trust is the most important pillar of successful outbreak 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.

But which messages build public trust during an outbreak, and…

Mission 8

Uncover a community management success story from the CBNRM Net's collection of more than 250 case studies from 75 countries. Or, pick an indigenous knowledge case study from the KIVU Project for Indigeneous Knowledge. Pick out what YOU think is the most important lesson from the case study and share it with the EVOKE network in a blog post, video or photo essay.

My neighbors know literally nothing. I'm finding the world very unaware of ANY surroundings lately.

A crisis like for shortages in Gainesville could be easily solved by killing and eating all of the cows in Ocala.

Empowering Women: Act

My favorite organization has always been the A21 Campaign. This was started by my role model, Christine Caine. She has such a heart for women and empowering women. The organization's model is focused on human trafficking but they work beyond just rescuing and help restore women and bring them to a place of self worth and empowerment better than they were before.

A21's website sums it up pretty well: We prevent trafficking through awareness and education. In schools, orphanages, and…

Empowering Women: Learn

Women's watch is a neat site designed to empowering women. I read about the UNESCO making education available to a broader range of people, and I found in another article on Women's Rights in Qatarabout women being allowed to run for office, vote, pursue an education. They're working towards equality across social, economic and political boundaries.

Future of Money: Act

This week I found out how to use a cashiers check!! Before I never really understood what the difference was between a Cashier's check and a normal check, but my apartment needed a cashier's check for something instead of a normal check. So I had to go into my bank and get a cashiers check for the earnest money used in my home purchase. I didn't know how to do it, but luckily one of the teller's was willing to help out. The bank takes the amount of money you put on your cashiers check out of…

Money Money Money: Learn

I really like the idea of community currencies. If most people in the community use their specialized currency, it makes sure that the town or city's economy is not guaranteed to collapse if the national currency system breaks down. Particularly in underdeveloped communities I think this would be great because of the instability of the governments. Its a way to create a sense of monetary security within the town. Since there is one particular group using it, this system would also make sure…

Water Crisis: Act

I like the work that Water for People is doing. I'm donating money to parter with this organization to bring clean water to people. Water For People helps people in developing countries improve the quality of life by supporting drinking water resources, sanitation facilities, and hygiene education programs. 783 million people don't have access to clean drinking water and 2.5 billion don't have clean facilities, and I feel like WFP understands that this is aright we shouldn't stand for. Every…

Learn: Water Crisis

In the past, Yani Madrid, a 37-year-old mother of three children, walked every morning before dawn to the nearest, unsafe, water source in the Honduran district of San Antonio de Cortés.

“Every day was the same thing. I carried two buckets to fill with water so we could have water at home to drink and cook," she says with a soft laugh.

Filled to the brim, the 60-pound buckets of water hammered her shoulders as she walked two hours, sometimes multiple times a day. Yani's children,…

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
