Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

A social innovator play four key roles efficiently as an Initator-catalyst- leader-and implementer . The roles keep on changing as circ**stances demand.

Social Innovation is about bringing change in the things we do for achieving larger objectives of financial economic sustanibility , reducing social inequality and getting rid of inequity in resources.

Social innovation is a growing continous community development movement whose building blocks are creativity, community participation, social values, organised right approach, leadership development, right people at right time, efficient delivery, and resource development

Interesting. Some philosophical points to consider.

Are you looking for equality of result, or opportunity? What is the fundamental unit of value in resources? (Different economic schools have different opinions here).

Should social innovation be community based or individual based? What are the differences in action? What are the individual expectations of community organization?

What is the nature of leadership in innovation? What are the dangers of leadership in innovation?

Finally, your ideas are slightly evocative of Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower. Have you read it? If you haven't, I'd love to hear your reaction when viewing it in the light of evoke.

So, What are you hoping to achieve through being a social innovator yourself? =) I am hoping to help give others the opportunity to be self-determined and empower them using networking technologies.

Hi Brian ,
Thanks for comments
I am looking at reaching social equality where under privilages get all social benefits as that of people at higher class of society.
Social values are integral part of any community culture so objectives has to be achieved keeping the values as a support to the system rather than other way round. Resources comprise of human resources and infrastructure and I think both are fundamental in bringing equity.
Community development is the window of the social innovation where as the innovation can be individual driven.
Motivation as s leadership skill is the essence of social innovation drive.
I havent read Octavia but definately I am gonna read it

Hi Emma.

I have similar beliefs, I believe in empowering people, it does wonders and you can see the tangible results. As a social innovator I become the medium for spreading information, bridging people and initiator of new schemes that support and develop the marginalised segments of society.

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

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.
