A digital education journey to encourage collaboration over competition

Day 7 – July 24th – Port St Johns – Queenstown

The recce riders planning the Long Ride To Freedom, were hit by severe wind today and decided to take the day off and get some good rest in.

In the meantime, we wrote to SpaceX today asking them to keep an eye on the Decentralised Sustainable Innovation Village progress we're going to build. With a hopeful yes, the talks we will deliver at the schools will get the kids excited about being identified to go work at SpaceX.

September Ride Purpose:
In September we bring together farmers, students, software developers and virtual assistants to learn about digital disruption, what it is, why it is happening and how we can harness disruption to clean up our planet. A very strong focus will be on Blockchain technology and Ecommerce so that we can bypass expensive supermarkets. We will deliver books from the World Economic Forum as well as other material
