A crash course in changing the world.
LEARN – 10 (What urgent challenge should EVOKE tackle next)
EVOKE (Season 2) has to be better, resilient and network of creative people sharing the collective wisdom on solution of different world problems.
Next great challenges and social Problems: Generally Poverty, Health, Education, Energy, Environment, Terrorism, Information, Communication and Finances have to be the main challenges for couple of decades. More specifically following are few areas to be considered for further evocation; 1) Fundamentalism and Terrorism, 2) Environmental imbalances, 3) un fair distribution of wealth, 4) Poor Governance and instability 5) Information, communication and digital divide 6) Sustainable alternative Energy, 7) Basic Health and Primary Education 8) International Aid and Less Developed countries Debt 9) Agriculture and Industrial balance and 10) Human rights and Justice for all.
Evoke communities around the world: The next Evoke Season II has to focus more on the underdeveloped and developing countries for implementation and providing them effective and efficient local solutions whereas Developed countries has to develop Evoke communities for the more research and development work focused on translating the theory into practical benefits for the less privileged community on earth.
Participants of Season II: Real players of the EVOKE Season II can be combination of students, researchers, practitioners from Developed world to the less developed countries. The right mix of participants would help to create a learning culture on Evoke network.
Changes for Season II: 1) A****sment would be only based on the evidences without display of agents identity so that only better quality matter can get the points rather personalities driven scores 2) All the agents would be playing on evoke with their true identity 3) Mentors and Monitors would be going through the forums and guiding the participants in more better way 4) Encouragement and awards to the real social innovators 5) Open conversations, telephonic and video conferencing setups for the missions and quests 6) Certification at the end and evocation more chances for further research and development.
New Tools: MSN, telephonic and Video conferencing on different missions, field trips by the same locality members.
Coming Again: I would love to be part of Evoke again in different capacity now, may be as a mentor, checking the material and a****sing it and producing more learning culture on Evoke.
