EVOKE was a ten-week crash course in changing the world. It was free to play and open to anyone, anywhere. The goal of the social network game is to help empower people all over the world to come up with creative solutions to our most urgent social problems.

The game’s first season began on March 3, 2010 and ended on May 12th, 2010.  The EVOKE website states that you can still request to join the game with a group now. Take a look at the link at the bottom of [the source post].


About Season One

On May 12th, 2010 the first season of the game ended, and successful participants formed the first graduating class of the EVOKE network.

More information can be found at the EVOKE website.

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. Its audience was all ages; recommended age 13 and up.
