A crash course in changing the world.
One of my favorite days of the year is 4.20. On this momentes day in 2020 many think back just 10 years ago when water started becoming scarce & alternative means to power & live started to really take route. Today I am on a meduim-size island with a friend who owns it off the coast of South America. Due to the collaborative efforts of the ignagural class of Evoke, 2010, the world leaders & governments were helped in diverting global food & fossil fuel shortages, riots, death. In honor of all of our dedication through time & research this is an Evokabration. Everyone who signed up that first year is invited to this island party. Not only does my friend own this island, he has made it very sustainable with the aid of me and countless others.
The islands buildings are powered by 30% solar energy, 40% geothermal, 15% wave & 15% wind. It is renowned for one of the first larger scale projects in the world. There is a three story library/community gathering building, 75 houses, each with a solar powered golf cart & green roof, ranging from one-bedroom to five, hammocks strewn throughout the island for those who miss out on these houses. Or maybe the ones in the houses miss out on the hammocks...
There is a water desalinazation plant, ten docks for visitors & supplies, two electric helicopters, a exploratory fish farm, greenhouses, hemp fields, the best bud cultivation, a glass blowing shop, many gardens, & three fairly sized areas where natural habitat remains untouched (save for some narrow paths) & countless other sustainable things. The party will feature fresh fish from the sea, replenished for five years into what it once was. Fresh fruit, mangoes, coconuts, kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, watermelon and more will fill up an entire three tables. Cooked & fresh vegetables will accompany the fish as well as two other tables. We are proud that fish is the only meat served; other meat is kept to the bare minimum.
Several large ships will be docked at some of the docks to take a bit of stress off the island. These ships run on power garnered from the sea while passing through. I rub my hands together & throw a silly grin to my friend. After all we have been a part of evoking what were once the greatest fears of mankind; hunger, poverty, diminished fossil fuels, war, & hatred. Peace & kindness reign in the kind of dreamy way no one thought was possible. Neighbors help each other out on projects & recieve help in return.
I'm excited for all the people who chipped in on the first class; discussing the imminent fuel dilemma, supreme poverty & hunger & war. We solved what governments either couldn't or wouldn't solve. I've got to stop writing now, guests have started arriving, I recognize many from their online pictures!
