The 50 Coffee Adventure

Your Very Own Mission Impossible

This is Version 4.0 of a playful education and social change project that uses the simple act of going for 50 coffees as a mechanism to change the world and learn new skills. Most of the early prototyping of this project has been centred around the Channel Island of Guernsey where there is already a strong social innovation community.

It is a prototype, so please provide feedback using the Google Docs commenting system. To support this project financially please visit my Patreon page.
