I think the social problems which were treated in the last 10 weeks are still biggest Challenges. Additional to this problems could be poverty and child labour a topic for Evoke. That are the biggest problems in the world.
New EVOKE communities should grow around the world. I think there is no special place for the next community. It should around grow around the world constantly. Then can all communities work together and the social problems will more efficient solved.

Coming to Terms With Uncertainty
I think the most important is the understanding conflicting and uncertain information. If informations are not safe enough, wrong information will provide more panic. One way is to have a central point from which you can provide safe informations in the correct quality. You have the chance to widespread the correct information in the correct abstraction. A lot of needless panic could be avoidance if the community has a platform on which they can get…

My chosen Story is from Uganda. The story is about the conservation of protected areas like national parks or game reserves. The target is to conservation of the biological diversity.

The agriculturalists and the hunters around use the that areas for production and on that way the areas are menace. Two case studies proved that the situation will get more and more worse.

After reading some ideas I was sure that no idea can convince me completely. The idea, which I could accept is the idea with the social media credits (like Facebook credits, Twollars etc.). I think the first step was the development from PayPal. In the next step, you will have many different kinds of credits in the beginning. Nearly every platform will have their own creditpoints.
The future of the money will get more and more virtual. In the long run the cash will die. But I would go…

I find a very interesting solution which is in use in Uganda since 2010. In that project the Gmundener Ernst Hauseder has invent the basic idea for "best water source" machine.

You can pump water into the machine with an lever, which is to use by hand. Alternativ you could use a electric pump to pump water in the machine. The machine works with a…Continue

By thinking about something I use every, I notice that I have not so much things I could power on a cheaper way. So I start thinking about my equipment at work and at the university. There I could find something.
I work every day with a laptop for the study or for the work. I think it could be a way to power a laptop by an dynamo. After sitting so much before a laptop it is a nice alternation to power a laptop by using a dynamo. The dynamo must not be used by hand, it could also used…

I could discover some interest energy projects, which partially in use. For example, the use of energy-producing tiles. The idea is, that everytime when somebody walks on this slab, it produce energy. By every step the kinetic energy changed in electricity by a dynamo. This slabs could be used in a disco as a dancefloor or in a shopping street. These slabs are called Pavegen-slabs and should used between the Westfield City Shopping Center and the olympic stadion for the Olympics 2012 in…Continue
An idea to share the foods is to create a few special points where every overproduction from the farms can be collected. On that way you have a fix point to share the food. So that it is interesting for a farmer to do this, he can get a tax benefit in the community. Accordingly can some peolpe build up an own little home garden to produce some vegetable. Alternativ can build up a community farm, which is financed by the community and some people work there to produced some foods.…

The biggest challenge in my community for food safety is not that it is not enough. It is producing too much, it will be thrown away and much is unhealthy. This is generally very inefficient for the producer and the consumer. One idea would be that the over-production will be used for a healthy diet instead of thrown away them.
Accordingly nobody take care for a healthy diet and so many lives unhealthy.
Especially in the fast food sector is disclaimed to a healthy…
