Challenge

In 2025 60% of the world's population will live in a city. Urban areas which import their foods from rural areas and foreign countries contribute directly and indirectly to economic, social and environmental degradation. This causes famine in countries and rural areas that export food and commodities. We are all responsible for addressing this problem, finding creative ways to buffer the negative impact of our modern lifestyle. http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/food-energy-water-patterns

Solution

Creating affordable home based food production modules as in:http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/our-evokation-our-module and eventually creating OUR Community Farms http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/our-evokation-our-community

Long-Term Impact

The final objective is to create a sustainable and resilient global distributed network. This will improve at a systemic level the way we construct and maintain our food, water, health, education, human rights and communities. We believe in happiness
