Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Although megacities have been downsized in order to maximize resilient synthesis between populations and resources, service and production, Washington DC, LA, Tokyo, New Delhi, Buenos Aires, and other cities around the world remain large, vibrant, and bustling. They are, however, utilizing eco-city technologies and practices to become more resilient and healthy for all inhabitants.

All public and most private buildings in DC have introduced, and continue to utilize sustainable, green enhancements. A common feature is that buildings are now maximizing rainwater-capture and greywater recycling, photovoltaic and valent power production, super-reinforced frames and semi-flexible walls to promote earthquake safety. Buildings, roadways, and walking corridors now present vastly decreased impermeable surfaces, utilizing roof-top and green-space plantings.

Washington DC is among the forerunners supporting the use of renewable, zero-footprint energies, greenrooftops and greenspace, urban spaces, home and bridge-span gardening, and the concept of biodiverse habitat corridors have cooled the earth's cities and water-challenged spaces.

Locavore consumption, paired with the increased numbers of multi-crop, interplanted gardens, has reduced the need for food and other goods transport.

In DC, embassies, missions, all government and NGO buildings have become showcases of the cutting edge of green technologies, demonstrating and encouraging technology sharing between nations, corporations, and governments, greatly benefitting the environment. Embassies in other capital cities around the world are following suit.

DC utilizes resilient communications and security practices help keep the cities safe; economic development has turned to minimise material transport and cross-production, to maximize employment levels, recycling, reuse, and remanufacture.

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.

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

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
