Students, Professors, and Community Members Will Meet Max, the “Around World Biker” and learn about open access to quality educational materials.
In mid-May, IDF’s biker, Max, began a four-year around the world bike and canoe journey in Orlando. Max will spend the next six months visiting universities across North America to share his story with professors, students, and local communities. Mile by mile, city by city, university by university Max is promoting open access to quality educational materials. Education is the single most powerful way to lift people out of poverty and change lives, and Max will share this vision at every stop. View this video preview and check out the bike tour website.
