Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Objective: "Make an alliance with a water visionary. Do something to further
their water security efforts — and tell the network how you helped
in a blog post, video, or photo essay".

Like I mentioned before, I am a part of Rotary Club International, and my local club manage a lot of different project but this year we didn't have a project about water.

So, this is what I did.

1. I Searched in which initiative or rotarian project we can help or extend to my country, especially to my community, and I found:

"Water & Sanitation Rotarian Action Group"

And this information I think is the key to the initiative.

Rotary and Water

The challenge- About 97 percent of the world’s water are oceans -- and saline. More than 2 percent of the rest of the water is frozen in icebergs and glaciers, leaving less than 1 percent of all water available for human use. If it were possible to fit all the water on Earth into a gallon (4 liter) jug, the relative quantity of water available would be about one tablespoon (4 fluid drams). Fresh drinking water and water for food production and waste disposal are essential and increasingly threatened. Population growth and megacities have increased demand six times since the beginning of the 1900’s. Pollution contaminates available supplies. Today, almost half of the world’s countries have severe water problems.

Rotary Solutions-Recognizing the vital importance of safe water, Rotary International policy encourages all Rotary districts and clubs to support efforts which help people to provide themselves with safe water. The safe water projects are to be reasonably close to homes using simple sustainable technology. This policy is reflected in projects of all sizes in all.

2. I convince the members of my local club to make same change in one project that we already have, including the element of water.
The project was about Environment Education - Work Shops for local schools with the diffusion of information about the envirorment take care. So, when I told "including the element of water" I mean, do the work shops and the distribution of information with brochure , emails and any type of publicity about water safe.
3. We already start the distribution in churches, schools, and every local busisnes, of the first piece of information about our country water resource and what we can do to take care of water supply.

This is one piece of evidence: http://www.urgentevoke.com/photo/campana-cuidame?context=user

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.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
