A digital education journey to encourage collaboration over competition

Day 3 – July 20th – 233km eMkhondo, MP (Piet Retief) to Ulundi

Day 3 - 20 July 2019 - 233Km - we have 545 weeks left until 1 January 2030 to make significant changes to our planet and this is what the recce team is helping us achieve - creating awareness!

With the information collected, we will ride the Long Ride To Freedom again in September and stop off at ten locations to educate students about technologies such as Blockchain, Internet Of Things, Artificial Intellgence and Automation to name a few that will replace certain jobs and what kinds of jobs we can create to save out planet.
We believe it is a great time to be alive. We believe we should encourage the Fourth Industrial Revolution to take over the mundane repetitive jobs nobody likes doing so that we can explore all of our other hidden talents whilst cleaning up our planet in the process.
 
From eMkhondo, MP (Piet Retief) to Ulundi, KwaZulu-Natal, the recce team passed from the province of Mpumalanga to KwaZulu-Natal. Wimpy it seems to be a regular stop to refuel!
