A crash course in changing the world.
EVOKE was developed by the World Bank Institute in the year 2010. It was created by Alchemy. The goal of the social network game is to help empower young people all over the world , and especially young people in Africa, to come up with creative solutions to our most urgent social problems. The first people who played the game was on March 3, 2010. The EVOKE network has three stages: LEARN, ACT,and IMAGINE. That is, you need to learn about a given crisis, take corresponding actions to provide solutions to these crisis, and imagine a world in which you could contribute significantly to these crisis.
