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.
