Muster all your creativity and innovation, because now is your chance to solve real-world issues like hunger, poverty, disease, conflict and climate change. Get ready to play EVOKE.
EVOKE is a new game brought out by the World Bank Institute. It empowers you— young people all over the world—to plunge right into the challenge and look for creative solutions.
Set in the year 2020, the story follows the efforts of a mysterious network of Africa’s best problem-solvers. Each week, as players unravel the mystery of the Evoke network, they will form their own innovation networks: brainstorming creative solutions to real-world development challenges, learning more about what it takes to be a successful social innovator, and finding ways to make a difference in the world.
Players who successfully complete ten online missions in ten weeks will be able to receive a special distinction: World Bank Institute Social Innovator – Class of 2010. Top players will also earn mentorships with experienced social innovators and business leaders from around the world, and scholarships to share their vision for the future at the EVOKE Summit in Washington DC.
Learn more in this game trailer and then register before March 3, 2010 to reserve your spot in the mission.
