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.

Shakwei,
I am working on my video as we speak, and will let you know when I've posted it. Maybe you can help me get votes?

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

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

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
