Here's a quick sketch of my idea: http://www.urgentevoke.com/photo/mission7-imagine?context=user
My City would be the ideal resilient one...especially by 2020.
All the infrasture is remodelled to simple easy and effective usage.
Housing accomodations would be on one side for the benefit of health care,
The city Central is the Central with all emergency… Continue

From the current crisis, the resilience that has surfaces was the block of roads to certain areas for the community's safety.
The people around my area know pretty well about these new temporary restrictions that have been set up, since they have been widely announced all over the local media to ensure that everyone adapts to this new and temporary change for everyone's own benefits and safety.
This is one of the few things that are rare to see because of the rare… Continue

Right now, I'm in Thailand, not literally stuck in the midst of the political crisis currently happening right now right this minute in Bangkok, but I'm pretty near it. About an hour and a half away from it to be exact.
Even so the crisis is quickly spreading, and I'm afraid it might even land right on my door step pretty soon.
If it really were to happen, I'd ask for Ushahidi's help. Their system of filtering all the information live and the accuracy of it is all… Continue

Breaking News: a New Bank called IFIE: aka. Items For Interest and Exchange owned by Mr. Q Bess. Year 2020 12 pm. Location: New City # 1.
People can trade in items in exchange for digital money used for trading.
A quick sketch of my idea for the mission is at the link: http://www.urgentevoke.com/photo/evoke-mission-5-imagine
The main idea is everything counts because everything is worth… Continue

I followed up on David Strelneck on Twitter, and found that he really does emphasize the importance of water.....
Many people are aware of it, Many people aren't.
Many people do something to help, Many people don't.
The main goal is EVERYONE should be aware of it and do something to help.
Common everyday tasks can be improved to save water.
Don't leave the tap running for whatever reason. Washing hands etc.
Even during washing, select… Continue

Now it is world water day 2020!!
The event would be held all around the world.
The title would be: Water to the Land!!
The goal would be to have all the people around to world to build roof gardens, so when storms come the ground would absorb it, so the drains won't be over flooded.
Also another activity for the day would be to "dump" all of any extra water to plants or trees so the waste can be absorbed into the soil for further use....excluding the toxic… Continue

The UNICEF Tap Project is very successful and very inspiring. The fact that restaurants can ask for the 1 dollar donation is a small, but very helpful act that contributes to UNICEF's project.
The fact that the goal is to reduce the problem to 50% percent by 2015 (which is in 5)
is a very fine idea to introduce that within the time span more people would be able to have access to safe sanitation water.

The new currency I used was the Snacks for Service Currency. In my words, SFS.
In exchange for a box of crackers that my friend gave me, I'm servicing her by teaching Japanese lessons.
With another, in exchange for sweets, I'm servicing her by teaching math.
It's a currency with no actual coins, but food in exchange for the work where both sides will benefit.
So instead of paying a friend with actual cash to help teach you homework, you exchange the service in foods… Continue

The biggest impact on our world now is the magnitude of virtual money just added the zeros.
The Do It Yourself currency just takes things to another level. The fact that actual money is "converted" so to speak to virtual money like the QQ currency is part of it.
The fact that people value this virtual currency so much is that it impacts what you use to buy items, and you see it as a "unique" currency, special from others around the world, and… Continue

During the recent influenza outbreaks that our people have faced every year, it seems to be practically expected that the influenza with adapt and change the next upcoming years.
Public trust, I think, is the most important, self confidence too.
Without the trust, the public wouldn't follow any of the suggestions. From this, if a new pandemic will come, I think groups should be made that make the people aware of basic, but important daily tasks… Continue

Well about alternative power storage...
You know those torches that you can use without batteries, but you have to shake them to make it light up?
Well what if we make a smaller version of that and make it so it's a device say the size of a small matchbox.
There are already those "step counters" that count your steps.
So combine those two ideas, and have athletes put on the device, and when they… Continue

In 2020, I imagine that I'll be spending Labor day in the garden having a picnic with my family. My friends would probably be playing soccer (with the energy storer type)
and if we were to have a meal at night, we'd use Lebone's device of getting energy from the dirt.
We would be storing food and snacks in reusable boxes and baskets with cloth bags..no plastic.
Cellphone devices will be powered by some new innovative resource!

In 2020, I'll probably be laying back in my self designed house in my green garden probably on the latest technology in the future that is powered by renewable resources.
By then, I hope to be a designer of environmental considerate buildings and products
Everything I do, everywhere I go, by 2020 would be environmental friendly. The theme will be green.
The future's key to living to be friendly with the world we live on. I'll probably be keeping track…

My favorite secret is how having limited resources forces you to reuse the same resources again (creatively).
This is my favorite secret because being forced to reuse resources is not a wall that stops you from doing something else.
Rather, from being forced to reuse a resources, you are able to rethink NEW ways of using the resources more effectively.
An example is, if you're stuck having only one tractor, the first time you use it, you plow the field in a square motion… Continue

I would imagine a meal in 2020 with my parents on a visit, and the meal would be cooked by my mother.
The meal would be one of my favorites, cabbage soup with carrots. Most likely that we'll be in Thailand, and DoiKham will still be popular, mother would've gotten the ingredients from the local market, and buying the DoiKham products.
By then, DoiKham would have more innovative agriculture that produce these chemical free products.
The Dish would be called Cabbage Soup… Continue

Today, when I told my friend (Nat) about the foods that look abnormally perfect with the pesticides, she replied back that she already knew about them.
But then she told me that she thought there are no places near where we live that sell foods without pesticide.
This was something new, so i told her about the Night Square market near the clock tower. Since that was the place where I buy most of the foods that are assured to not use chemicals.
Just doing that, she now… Continue

Thailand's agriculture plays a major role in the economy...then comes the safety part.
Most of the people previously see that large and near perfect shaped crops seem to be better in quality, but they would be so happy to buy them they don't think that those crops may have chemicals inside them.
From this reason, awareness has been raised through media such as commercials, people have been buying more carefully. Sometimes we notice that if the…
