Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

i have actually had this kicking around in my bookmarks for well on a year.
its been exciting to watch this project and the accompanying website and group grow and mature.

http://portablelight.org/

from the website:

More than 2 billion people live without electricity, most in extreme poverty. The Portable Light Project creates new ways to provide renewable power in solar textiles that can be adapted to meet the needs of people in different cultures and global regions. Portable Light textiles with flexible solar materials and solid state lighting enable the world’s poorest people to create and own energy harvesting bags, blankets, and clothing using local materials and traditional weaving and sewing techniques in an open source model.Portable Light enables people in the developing world to benefit from flexible solar nano-technology and accelerates the movement to clean energy worldwide.
