Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Do you have a vision for Africa? World leaders at the World Economic Forum to be held in Dar es Salaam Tanzania from May 5-7, 2010 want to know about it. They have set up a "Davos Debates video corner" at http://youtube.com/davos. Participants including presidents and business leaders will respond via video to your questions and ideas on the region's most pressing challenges.

Send your ideas and questions via video or text to YouTube.com/Davos. You can also vote on your favourite contributions from others. The contributions with the highest number of votes will be put to the leaders at the Davos Debates corner giving direct access to some of the most powerful and influential people in the world. The best entries may also be shown at the meeting. Go to YouTube.com/Davos to join the conversation.

I wonder how you can get more people to see this Shakwei, it would be good if there was a noticeboard for things like this.
Best Wishes

I will post a video about the neo-imperialism in Ethiopia. Government leasing farm land out to foreign corporations to grow gourmet produce, while the majority of Ethiopians are still starving. These people are SHAMELESS!

Look here:

Great opportunity, shakwei. To think that each of us can go to http://www.youtube.com/davos and directly pitch an idea or vote on other contributions, test out our Evoke training and hope to contribute to helpful solutions is a great concept. thanks for sharing the Davos work.

It is a great thing to ask participation of the people to big events like that :) Though, I am not so sure that anyone with a vision can access to Internet. Children are extremely creative, so I hope that some teacher can work on this with their class, it could give very interesting results :)

@edayis, I have visited the site - your video is indeed needed. Perhaps you could let us know when you post it so that Evoke Agents can vote on it? Also, it you go here you will find some seriously good opinion pieces by Evoke Agents that may help you with your video.

Tanzania Beyond Tomorrow is one of the projects that will be featured during WEF. It is a collaborative, national scale eLearning programme for secondary school students and teachers. It is being implemented by a consortium of international blue chips together with local organisations. It is amazing in that Tanzania is a vast country much of which is unreached by the national power grid and whose students (and teachers) are not necessarily fluent in English.
The project plans to use sustainable clean green technology as much as possible. Please read about it here.

Many interesting topics including:
- Opening Plenary - Unlocking Africa's Growth Potential
- Social Entrepreneur Award – Africa 2010
- Managing the Water-Food-Energy Nexus
- A New Vision for Africa's Agriculture
- The Redesign of Africa's Role in the New Global Economy
Follow online at the WEF website

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

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.
