Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Design a new way to power something you use every day

Light is needed even when its not dark, some houses don't have enough windows to allow enough sunlight in. We privilege people have access to light bulbs and unlimited amount of electricity, therefore we people do not consider the gratefulness of light in our daily life. Have you ever thought about the people living in slums who don't have access to enough electricity? People in poverty can't eve afford a new light bulb, because it costs 6.02 dollars while they earn less than a dollar a day.

Therefore there is a easier solution for people living in slums to gain access to light. A 1 liter soda bottle will be placed in a roof, half outside, half inside, with few drops of bleach added and their lower portions refract light like 50-watt light bulb, but without using any power source. The process takes around a hour to install, cutting a h***, inserting a bleached-water-filled bottle, and resealing around the resulting gap.

We privileged people waste electricity in the stupidest ways from forgetting to turn off the light in our rooms, to keeping the T.V on even while we sleep. But for the people living under corrugated-metal roofs, even a stray ray is welcoming. Imagine how much better it would be for those people if they are capable of spreading light to even the darkest interiors, it would be a dream come true.

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
