Water Warriors!

I have become a Water Warrior. A person dedicated to informing and acting about this problem. Occasionally I will send ouut the mass text showing facts about how much water we have and how much they need. I subscribed to this website www.globalwaterchallenge.org.

Water kiosk

In Uganda water.org have started putting water kiosks in villages. Kiosks are basically a walled patio in which there are water taps built in to the walls. I think that thi is an excellent idea as it makes sure that villagers live safe in the knowledge tht there is a clean source of water right across the road instead of them having to used cotaminated springs and creeks.

Cellphones

Celllphones. They are something that almost everyone has. Some teens are texing non stop! Some take up a lot of power especially if they have to be charged everyday. They may not seem like a lot of electricity but if you add up how many people have cellphones then the power usage is quite alot. If all cellphones had solar panels on the back, front, keys and around the screen then all you would have to do is leave your phone by a sunny window to charge it. Only on rainy days would we have to…

Food security

To help food security I have helped my mum in the vege garden. It may not be a lot but half of what we grow this year will go to the local community centre for those who have no money to buy food. I hope I have provided a back up for those who are at the bottom of the wealth pyramid.

Pollution

I think Evoke should tackle the problem of pollution because it plays a major role in our everyday lives and everyone does it.

Pandemic help

I would probably call on my mum first because she is a medical officer and might know how to keep out of the virus's way depending if it is transmitted through touch, water, or is airbourne.

Bringing skills not just finished technologies

Provide skills, not just finished technologies. The current revolution in design for developing countries is the notion of co-creation, of teaching the skills necessary to create the solution,

rather than simply providing the solution. By involving the community throughout the design process, you can help equip people to innovate and contribute to the evolution of the product. Furthermore, they acquire the skills needed to create solutions to a much wider variety of problems. They are…

Public trust

I believe public trust in a pandemic is a big thing to have and is very necessary. This way the message about what to do can be sent clearly around countries. This also means the public will obey the suggestions in a way.

Malawi

In Malawi, farmers are being given seeds that they can plant anywhere and the trees that sprout out of them help the soil on the farm; making sure it is not eroding. The farmers share these seeds out to their friends and help with their crops too. These trees help with the farmers crops in a hot place like Malawi, meaning the economy grows in the farming industry in Malawi.

Plant Medicine Knowledge Box

I have found reports about indigenous people in South America using plants for medicine and healing. One tribe, called the Yąnomamö, are known for their huge botanical knowledge and use roughly 500 plants for food, medicine, and house building. If I were to make an object representing this knowledge, I would construct a large hollow wooden box with leaves and herbs hand-carved on the sides and lid. People would be able to write what they know about plant medicines and put them in the box for…

On the webpage "Globalgiving" I was looking for some donations and I particularly noticed the following:

Food security

My objective was to increase someone's food security near me.



So the question is how to help respectively whom should I support?

Generally in Germany, the country I live, and like in other industrialized countries we have no problem with food security. On the contrary we have a problem with high abundance of the food. Meanwhile, the food is usually thrown away when it doesn't look enjoyable anymore although you can still eat it. And it is so unjust because on the world there…

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

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.
