There have been some questions about who the World Bank is, and what their motives are behind UrgentEvoke. I haven't paid it much attention, as I believe that there is a lot of good coming out of the project regardless as to what THEY get out of it. For instance, I've become extremely active in learning and teaching about the things brought up by the game. On top of that, I can see that at least a few of my friends have become interested and are also spreading the word. With all that said, I was a little disturbed by what I heard about them in this video. It's a little hard to understand, but if you make it through the first half, you'll hear a little bit about what this speaker had to go through in speaking up against the World Bank and how he suggests we can all overcome such obstacles.
