Urgent EVOKE – must play game online …

EVOKE – a crash course in changing the world.

This is not a simulation.

You are about to tackle real problems.

Welcome to the EVOKE Network.

There’s an old saying here: “If you have a problem, and you can’t solve it alone, evoke it.”

An evoke is an urgent call to innovation.

When we evoke, we look for creative solutions.
We use whatever resources we have.
We get as many people involved as possible.
We take risks.
We come up with ideas that have never been tried before.

Every Wednesday at midnight, the network will send out a new evoke.
Here’s how to respond.

Read the story.
Investigate the story.
Accept your mission.

 

EVOKE was developed by the World Bank Institute, the learning and knowledge arm of the World Bank Group, and directed by alternate reality game master Jane McGonigal

    I love this game. It has prompted me to take action in the real world. I am now supporting a local food security organization and have posted information on how to get involved in helping to solve any number of social issues on my site http://www.kisstheground.ca

  2. Hey, kisstheground (love the moniker), all the best with your efforts.

    Everyone else, check out the art and word work on the http://www.kisstheground.ca website. Well worth the surf over there.

    Cheers!
