How to make EVOKE session2 better
Challenges and social problems to be tackled for session 2 of EVOKE
In my opinion, the following are the challenges and social problems which the EVOKE Network should tackle in session 2
*Intellectual property issues.
*Strengthen backward and forward linkages of agriculture and industry.
*Legal provisions for downtrodden
*Real time early warning system
Building up of new EVOKE communities
I believe to solve problems with the idea of “Think globally and act locally”. Hence, the network should be build up throughout the globe with provision to avoid digital divide and bring all the stakeholders on EVOKE platform. Focus should be more for underdeveloped economies.
Agents for Season 2:
I don’t believe in compartmentalization of ideas and everybody should be encouraged to participate. Given a chance, I would encourage more number of students of school level to participate because they do not have stereotype ideas and can bring fresh air in EVOKE.
Changes recommended for Season 2 of EVOKE
*Some sort of psychological test at the end which will determine the mental strength of *EVOKE agent to take up missions in actual field situation.
*EVOKATION should describe actual infield situation and should start with the game itself. At the end of the game, it should feature the outcome.
*Attachment of EVOKE agents with local governance, identification of at least one problem, interaction with different stakeholder and then try for implementing a change and finally reporting the result.
New tools recommended for session 2
I like to see the following tools/ widgets for session 2 of EVOKE
*Dashboard Widget Dock
*Widget Dock Mod (work with Yahoo Widgets! 3.0 and later).
*Also we should think how to have some widget which should have in built mechanism in the software to check formation of groups for awarding point.
Reasons for coming back for a second Season
As I have mentioned about many new missions which I held close to my heart, I’ll come back in session 2 on this great platform called EVOKE. Like session1, I will be available both as player as well as mentor.
Civil protection, or civil defense as it also known in some places, plays a vital role worldwide through disaster preparedness and by helping people in the event of a disaster. I want the EVOKE players of session2 of a particular region (with approachable distance) should form a civil defense.
It should be more action oriented. For example, adopting a village and then start working for food sovereignty. The report of entry level activities should feature with photos/videos and blog posts.
