Before this mission I have never heard of the words "urban resilience", so once I typed in these words following my city I was very surprised as well as intrigued to see an article that read "Poverty is a serious problem in Hamilton". The Welcome Inn Community Center has two specific innovative ways to reduce poverty levels in Hamilton. One innovation is the bizPlan
the other is,… Continue

The most damaging crisis that could occur is a spill in the Alberta Tar Sands. These tar sands are massive deposits of oil. If something goes wrong with the equipment used to transfer the oil from point A to B and causes a huge spill, Ushahidi will have no problems attaining information to create a report. This crisis will no longer remain local as this would be a huge deal and it would extrapolate to a national crisis. I would have to track many things during this crisis such… Continue

The women I empowered in 2011 have gone on to win Nobel Peace Prizes in medicine and peace in the year of 2020-21. Who would've thought that a group of women
who played rugby would go on to win an award with such prestige? These women on the rugby team felt so empowered that a quarter of the team went on to be women activists and won the Peace Prize while half received their doctorate and became great innovators in the field of medicine. The following year, 2021 the women who started… Continue

It seems as though the world especially developed countries are abusing our world water sources. Our Earth is composed of approximately 75% of water. Therefore, it is really significant that we do everything we can to save our water resources. Here are some tips that will help conserve our water:
1. Put a brick, a bottle filled with sand, or a Hippo / Bog-Hog bag into your toilet cistern. This reduces the amount of water you flush down the toilet.
2. Don't use a hose pipe… Continue

I am not much of a gardener since I hate all insects! But this year I am going to try and conquer my fear of these six-legged creatures and begin to garden a lot more. I have already started by planting a few flowers in a pot and placing them outside of my garage. My friends were coming over to my house to take pictures outside for prom, so I wanted the outside have a nice appearance. I absolutely loved planting the flowers and because of this new Evoke mission I have encouraged my mom to start… Continue

It is March 24, 2020. I present to you The World Water Conservation Day! Today I challenge the entire planet to go one full day without showering or bathing. Now the sound of this may seem extremely repulsive and grotesque, but ask yourself this question. How many times have you either skipped a day of showering to simply throw on some antiperspirant, or go on an overnight camping trip with no showers around? I guarantee the answer is more than once. So imagine the wh*** world for just one day… Continue

I found Forex Trading Canada to be a very unique method of trading foreign currency.

People are constantly using the internet to complete various tasks. So the fact that Forex trading is accessible online is very ideal.
Here is the link that explains what Forex Trading is about:… Continue

Hi EVOKE friends!
Today I went to my local shopping center to a store called "Continental Currency Exchange" to exchange 5 Canadian dollars to Euros. The only drawback was the store did not carry coins, their smallest amount was 5 Euros, it was a good thing they had an interact machine! Nonetheless, I put away my five dollar bill and used my debit card to finalize the currency exchange. It cost me $7.33 CDN to receive 5 Euros. I then asked the employee how the rates were set. She… Continue

All of my family and friends are coming over to my place to celebrate my birthday. My condo is located in a relatively small quiet neighborhood powered by a large community windmill just one kilometer from my place. My roof is comprised of solar panels, so I receive alternative means of energy with this method. My father offered to BBQ sausages, steak, hamburgers and shish kobab's on my natural gas BBQ versus my old charcoal BBQ. Since everyone will be conversing and mingling outside, I had to… Continue

It's the year 2020. I received a strange call from an agency called Alchemy five months ago regarding a food crisis in Tokyo that desperately needed my help. The only thing is, I HAVE NO IDEA WHO ALCHEMY IS! I vaguely remember the name Alchemy. It sort of sounded familiar but I just could not put my finger on it. I keep repeating the word, "Alchemy, Alchemy, Alchemy" to try and stir up any memories. A mixture of strange words were flooding into my head, "Tokyo...food crisis...Alchemy...… Continue

In nine years I see myself in my second year of med school. Who knows, I may even be in the UK studying abroad! I have always dreamed of becoming a concert pianist, playing in grand halls, however the medicine field has been calling my name. Though I will not be an "official" doctor as of yet, I will be in scrubs working alongside doctors, either in a doctor's office or hospital. I will be assisting / observing doctors with examination of patients, diagnosis, the prescription of medicine, minor… Continue

I have chosen to shadow Craig Kielburger, the founder of the well known Free The Children Foundation. Ironically, today marks the 16th anniversary of Free The Children. I am following his page on Facebook in order to keep up with his latest whereabouts. Today he posts in his status, "I am honoured to say that, today, April 19, is Free The Children’s 16th birthday! 16 years ago, we founded Free The Children with the dream of helping make a world where all children are free. There is no more… Continue

Meeting customer affordability requirements is extremely decisive to a successful product. As innovators, we always have to take into consideration the consumers budget. Let us use Somalia as an example. Somalia has a GDP per capita of only $600. It would be asinine and rather humiliating to invent a new ridiculously expensive product that is essential to the ma**** who can ill-afford it. Not only will sales be next to zero but this would greatly effect the company's bottom line. Because… Continue
