Let's Create the Future Tour 2013
I am very honored and happy to announce that I have been invited to speak in several countries around the world.
I'm scheduled to speak at schools in each country as well as participate in other events held by various organizations and meet with various politicians in the US and abroad. My speech is called, “The Best Way to Predict the Future is to Help Create It,” (quote by Abraham Lincoln, speech by me). This speech focuses on how people, especially kids, can find and get involved in issues and projects that interest them.
I returned from the first leg to Australia in Spring 2013 and will travel to Washington, DC and several European countries beginning in September 2013. Here is a group of kids in Australia taking action after my visit.
We continue to raise funds for the third and final leg of the Tour to Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and New Zealand, which will follow the European leg. Our goal is $10,000 to complete the final leg of the Tour.

In order to have as little negative environmental impact as possible in making this trip to accept these speaking invitations, I have committed to traveling entirely by public, shared, and non-motorized transportation, and committed to spending nights in shared accommodations, cooking most of our own meals and eating locally-sourced food whenever possible.
