How I imagine the (my) World to be in 2020
Its now 2020 and much has changed in the last 10 years on this planet. Since the climate shifted, people had to leave their homes to search for a new place to live. As panic rose in many places, people got aware that they have to work together to survive.
We are lucky as the world has shown to be more resilient to our intrusions as scientists predicted. Many of us didn't really get hit by the climate change. However, it was enough to remind people of their responsibilities for each other. Luckily there are many leading social innovation, many of which learned and connected back in the days of urgentevoke 2010.
I am proud to be one of them. Back in 2010 I was one of the players of urgentevoke and really enjoyed it. I got into contact with many fascinating people and started to give a little back to the world. However, as the story often goes I did not make it my purpose in live. I started the usual corporate carrer. It was satisfying at first, I was successful and made some money, started a "normal live". I started a family.
However I stayed involved in some smaller projects in my little free time. The recent flood in the Netherlands finally opened my eyes and gave me the courage to change. Together with some friends I started a venture capital funded company that tries to make profit but really is about saving our lovely planet. I never would have started if it wasn't for all the insight and contacts I got back then playing urgentevoke in 2010.
