Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

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.

I liked the honesty of your vision; positive but realistic. I'm sharing much of that struggle between a (relatively easy) corporate career and a (much harder) wholly responsible life...

Hi Stefano, thanks for your feedback! Yeah, I thought later that maybe I missed the point of the task by not imaging the best future possible, but it just came out that way. Cheers, Chris

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.
