After months of looking forward to the "ZEM goes USA tour," it officially began on September 5. With a team of 13 students from different backgrounds we are traveling to the USA to make the tour a great success. During the tour we will visit universities, companies and authorities to inspire everyone with our beautiful ZEM.
In the past months we have had a lot of contact with inspiring people to plan all kinds of activities for the tour. Together with these people we want to create the future of sustainable mobility.
Since it is not possible to get Zem to the West Coast from the beginning of our tour, we have decided to split into two teams - a large team on the West Coast and a smaller team on the East Coast - which will meet halfway through the tour in Austin. The west coast team will start the tour in San Francisco on September 5 without Zem, and the east coast team will wait for Zem to arrive on September 8. The east coast team will then begin their own additional mini-tour before joining the rest of the team in Austin.
Every disadvantage has its advantage and that includes this extreme delay of the boat. Having to split up our team means we can do twice as many activities, making our impact twice as big and inspiring twice as many people!
