Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I think Dr. Stedman did a tremendous job incorporating this experience into our basic curriculum for our leadership class. Our work focusing on the Seven Revolutions, reading the State of Fear, and our basic Communications curriculum was very related. Project Evoke took our class to that next step - making action tangible.

Urgent Evoke gives us a reason to learn about what is going on in the world now, act upon what we have learned, and imagine what the future may entail.EVOKE is a ten-week crash course in changing the world.
It is free to play and open to anyone, anywhere. The goal of the social network game is to help empower people all over the world to come up with creative solutions to our most urgent social problems.

Evoke was actually developed by the World Bank Institute, the learning and knowledge arm of the World Bank Group, and directed by alternate reality game master Jane McGonigal.The World Bank Institute (WBI) is a global connector of knowledge, learning and innovation for poverty reduction. We connect practitioners and institutions to help them find suitable solutions to their development challenges. With a focus on the "how" of reform, they link knowledge from around the world and scale up innovations.

In the future, Project Evoke should branch out and make itself known to other universities and colleges and even businesses and offices in order to expand the number of individuals trained with the skills and awareness to start making a difference. If more people knew the number and the truly alarming realities of what is to come, then I think change would be so much more possible.

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
