Students from the Silesian University of Technology titled their project "The Pilgrim". The mission of the title pilgrim is education.
There are currently over 700 million people in the world who cannot read or write. Most of them are women. Nearly three times as many do not have access to a stable curriculum. Without these basics, people are cut off from information, knowledge and education. Numerous wars, natural disasters, deepening social inequalities and the impending collapse of the ecosystem are the real problems of the 21st century.
"The Pilgrim" consists of three stages: the first is the production of specialized research and education units in the assembly towers. The second is the transportation of the units by flying modules to selected locations on the globe where teaching systems do not exist or operate at a low level. The third stage is the creation of educational centres, that give people access to the knowledge, tools and technologies of the modern world, enabling them to provide equal opportunities.
