Urgent challenge: fight cities' anonimity

I would like to suggest the next challenge of Evoke to be fighting cities' anonimity which makes people feel and be more alone in cities than on villages.

Covering Risk (1 of 5 secrets of Crisis Communication)

I've picked "Covering Risk" from the "The five secrets of Crisis Communication" as the most important factor in a crisis because it is crucial to keep people informed about the dangers they are facing so that they take the necessary measures for them to be safe while avoiding panicking them.

I've chosen this indigenous piece of knowledge to share:


because I think it may help western countries to improve the quality of life of mothers and their children.

Earthquake in Vila Nova de Gaia

I think an earthquake is the most probable natural disaster my city could face in the future.

In the crisis I would track the number of people that noticed the earthquake, the number of people that suffered injuries from it as well as the number of deaths and the location of all these people.

In this crisis I would need to collect the information of the probable subsequent earthquakes that would follow the first one and I would need people to help me identify the number and… Continue

Money Traces

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.

Water = Happiness

This day, people from around the world will take photos drinking water with a smile which will mean that while we have water, we can have happiness, but when we don't, we will die. The best photo gets a lifetime supply of water. What do you think?

charity: water

I found this project very interesting because it uses something very common: giving presents, for people to help make clean water available to other people. I found the E-card feature particularly interesting as it is a way of donating that helps spread the idea and makes it more interesting for the donor to donate because it gives the donation a purpose.

New Year 2020

I'm celebrating the New year with my family and this event is only powered by the Sun. Instead of celebrating the New Year at midnight, we celebrate it at noon January 1st so that we don't have to use electricity. How cool is that?

Playpower to the power of world's emerging middle class

I've recently acknowledged the existence of the project Playpower "We support affordable, effective, fun learning games. We're starting with an existing $10 TV-computer as a platform for learning games in the developing world." From a future economist's point of view, I find this project really interesting as it will probably widen largely the number of people that will have access to knowledge through gaming and contribute to help the development of the world's emerging middle class. I hope I… Continue

Hoodia dinner

It's March 10, 2020. I'm at home, eating with my family. My food came from my home's garden and I've collected it just before arriving home. I prepared it myself. It's called hoody and it's made from hoodia: a plant that is known for suppressing appetite. It tastes like olive and it's the third and last meal of the day.

Leading Economy of Communion

Ten years from today I expect to be a president of a company that lives by the spirit of the project Economy of Communion. I expect to make conferences all over the world to spread this project's ideals.

Listening to people

I think listening to people is one of the most important characteristics
of a social innovator I could be because by doing it not only it is easier to
understand what people need to improve their quality of life but also
they can work together with me and be part of the solution. By being part of the solution, both they and I will attain fulfillment.

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

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
