Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.



The Sustainability Institute is found on a plot
located a short distance from the renowned Spier Wine Estate. It is led by Eve
Annecke, one of the Lynedoch Development’s co-founders, who has a Masters in Management Learning from
Lancaster University in the United Kingdom and has spent many years working in
Organisational Learning.


The idea behind the Sustainability Institute is partly

to introduce young students who are doing university degrees to look at ways of
sustaining our existence.


The Institute has several different projects, some of
which it has initiated, some of which it has sustained and some of which it has
revived. All of these revolve around sustainability and creating an economic
and physical space in which we can live and work without the concern of our
impact on the planet.


The Sustainability Institute is a fantastic pilot project - because how are we
to learn about this VERY important Global Issue if there's no-one to teach it?


Amazed by the initiative of the Sustainability

Institute, I decided to get into contact with Eve Annecke, and my conversation
with her (thus far) is as follows
:


Hi Peter


Thanks very much for writing. Cool project.What would help you most? Our website is www.sustainabilityinstitute.net for some information and maybe useful images, and then perhaps let me know what else. A paragraph or 2 from
me? Your club would also be very welcome to visit and do a bit of a tour of
our place - lots of people do that, and maybe you
have already.


Best, Eve

Ma'am


I am writing both from Bishops, as a Global Issues Network member, and from EVOKE, a leaders-of-tomorrow skills site set up to teach mainly African learners how to tackle Global
Issues.
We have been tasked to contact someone we consider a
"hero" in terms of tackling these issues, and I have chosen your
Institute and
you in particular for my study. What I would
most like to know from you is how successful your Institute has been in the
past several years , not only in terms of
students' success, but also in terms of your
Ecovillage, your pre- and primary schools' feedback and also your personal opinion
on
the project - it looks wonderful to our club, and we
are all inspired by it.

Thank you very much for your time
.

Thanks, Gene. Just so that this is clear, Spier (next-door to the Sustainability Institute) is a half-hour's drive from where I live, and I have already made a visit to the site - it's unbelievable! the innovation is something else altogether.

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

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
