Mission 1 - Imagine - Welcome to my world 2020

Seriously its been a mad 10 years. Apart from the fact that England won the world cup exactly 10 years ago now and even more amazingly Team GBR managed to top the London Olympic leaderboard in the same year, my personal life has seen momentous changes.

The first year of EVOKE back in 2010 was an amazing success. We had over 20,000 players by the end of week 10. The quality was incredible and the projects that came out of the EVOKATION process were just earth shatteringly…

She has set-up this institute to try and bring education to those poor people who live in the Manila slums and who currently receive little or no education at all.

Mission 1 - Learn - My secret code for social innovation

Thanks so much ^^ I really appreciate it. In your own way you are all helping me because it's a kind of motivation. I am still thinking about funding, and a more detailed plan of the set-up / actual venue. I have been thinking about various aspects of the project, and will write another post soonish regarding the project and its developments ^^
