Personally, I think there is nothing more thrilling, concrete and useful than talking about innovation and future in an island, 'necker island' recently hit by hurricanes, even in a tent.

Sleeping under the stars beside a bonfire, it is part of my life since I started discussing sustainability many years ago with the Aboriginal populations, the ones in Micronesia, the Dancal tribes in Africa.

It makes us all more humane, aware, and visionary. Compliments for the challenge and the idea.

I highly recommend Extreme Tech Challenge, I think the debate around innovation has to happen in all spheres, in startup circles, in private economy and in government. For me programs like this not only brings startups with great potential to the spotlight but encourages them to keep moving forward, we have to keep supporting those who are making innovation tangible and this for me is the greatest reward that this challenge can bring, another reason to keep believing we can do better and we can change the world in a positive way.
