A crash course in changing the world.
When I am thinking about the future of the EVOKE network and what urgent challenges could be tackled next the following problems/spheres could be in the centre of attention:
> to save endangered animals and plants from extinction given special attention to protection and the reason for the threat
> Special attention should be given to the future and the education of children in different parts of the world. Every child should get the chance for a future prospect and of course to be a chlidren and not to work several hours per day to finance their family and dont have access to education. Here production of western goods and poor work conditions of people could be also addressed.
> Especially for the 'Western World' the trade with food could be important and eye opening. The waste should be reduced and the regional production and sale should be increased. In the interests of developing our society, there must be new awareness of an appropriate treatment of foodstuff.
> Another topic which should be focused is about cultural and ethnical characteristics and differences. Nearly everybody consider her-/ or himself as tolerant and open-minded towards other people, countries and cultures. But I think 'in practice' and every day life the handling and interaction with each other could be improved.
Furthermore I would suggest to support the regional point of reference. In the last missions I tried to integrate regional and local problems and solutions to tackle challenges in my surrounding. I think it is a good start for everyone to recognize and expose the 'near problems' to get a feeling for the 'bigger challenges' in the world.
Maybe it could be possible too, to work together with partners, firms, organizations etc. from the vicinity. Therefore I would suggest to burst the weekly intervals of the missions and instead give the agents two or three weeks time to concentrate on doing one or two 'bigger projects' as a mission with more points together with a partner.
