Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

So my video taking skills are pretty terrible. Next time I'll take one with the light in front of me instead of behind me, promise! :)

That's quite a revolutionary idea, Chelsea.
Perhaps we should have special EVOKE missions for kids.
We can always use more unusual, creative, and strange ideas to test and prototype as potential world-changing solutions...

I agree, Alchemy. I'm going to talk to the students' parents this week and see if I could take a video asking the kids what they think the best way would be to go about changing the world. I can ask them once before I tell them about EVOKE, and then again the next week after it goes live - that way, we can see what EVOKE might teach them about the problems facing the world, and what they can think of to solve it.

Fantastic idea. What ages are the kids? Will be fascinating to hear their perspective on the issues that are on their minds and ideas to solve them.
Comment by Chelsea Howe on February 26, 2010 at 1:25am
The kids are middle and high school, so 11-18 years old. :) It's pretty fascinating, actually, because it's almost always the younger ones who do better in the course. Childhood is just a feast for the imagination, and I think that's what we should be trying to encourage and harness.

Nice video Chelsea.

children have an ability to see the simplicity in things.

Love the idea and yes it's amazing what kids can do with a lot of encouragement. I also hope to work with kids/youths at some point. Thanks for sharing

We have two lemmas here in Diadema:

To the distribution of school uniforms, we say that equality is the mark of it:

Em Diadema uniforme escolar tem etiqueta.
Igualdade: a marca que nossos 30 mil alunos usam.

In Diadema, school uniforms have label.
Equality: the mark that our 30k students use.

There is another saying, which states that with more, children can do much!

Thanks!

I like that idea a lot. I feel that children can often pick out an idea or sentiment that we adults have taken as novelty or sometimes to large to change. It is a fantastic idea to tap into knowledge that hasn't been effected by the self imposed limitations we adults create. Good Luck!

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. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. 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.
