A crash course in changing the world.
This is an idea post in response to Can YOU Help Defeat the Dragon?
SUMMARY: A new area in EVOKE for emerging EVOKATIONS to be posted with the aim of getting comments and builds from the community, and especially anyone with relevant LOCAL INSIGHT.
DETAILS: A fourth ‘EVIDENCE’ stream could be created specifically to facilitate the nurturing of early EVOKATIONS and to provide a focal point for anyone joining who may have local insight. The area would be ‘positive builds and comments only’ so as not to kill off any vulnerable ideas (hence the greenhouse – think seedlings poking through the soil). Any parallel efforts to improve engagement with people close to the problems EVOKE is targetting could then direct these people to this area rather than them having to sift through full blog list.
This would also allow for iterations and prototyping of EVOKATIONS by exposing them, in a safe environment, to the input of the wider network, with the aim of re-looping and developing ideas rapidly.
Any ideas posted in this area would be encouraged to start addressing the four sections which ALCHEMY has already highlighted for inclusion in a final EVOKATION submission, namely The Place, The Idea, The Challenge, The Money. This would serve to focus any local insight efforts – once a place has been set, the insight really needs to be coming from there, or from someone with strong knowledge of local issues and limitations.
