Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

To be a Social Innovator I believe as many do that one must listen to the people and respect their culture and way of life, and only then will the trickle-down complications to solutions of problems be understood.

We must understand the problem right down to the nitty details; too often a problem is discovered and the solution races to mind.

Sometimes the problem isn't the problem, it's someone's solution to fix a problem. Read that twice.

A classic example is sending lovely equipment only to have it torn apart by the locals to make something they can use or leave to rot. The equipment didn't solve a problem, it became one because it didn't resolve the initial intention. Yes one would argue that at least the locals gained something they could use but it's about the intention to solve a problem which failed.

We need to learn from our mistakes and share our failures, identify and learn the lessons from efforts gone right and wrong so when someone wants to send equipment to solve a problem they first learn from another's experience and add theirs to the collective.

That's the difference a site like this can make for when we are connected, we are one voice of many causes for the goodness in life for all.

I intend to learn many ways to be a social innovator and before I know it, I will be one.

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
