IMAGINE 2

I imagine myself in some peaceful place in the world, sharing my meal with friends. I imagine a place with big trees and hearing the sound of the sea. The meal would be delicious, with perhaps some kind of meat, plenty of vegetables, aromatic plants, different breads, a good wine and lots of fruits.

Game 1: evoke power: SPARK



I like to tell you about spark: a man: Alfredo Olivera, his team: patients of a psychiatric public hospital and his project: a radio station.



While Alfredo was studying psychology at Buenos Aires Health University (Argentina, Southamerica) he realized that mental illness was much more a social problem than a medical one.

Mission 1 My favorite secret: think like a child – children have no limit to their thinking

Think like a child helps me to be a social innovator, because it requires new ways of thinking, different perspectives to create what doesn’t exist yet, to achieve a vision.

Fourth of July on the Lake

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

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.
