This global challenge will involve the delivery of a One World flag to each nation David visits in exchange for a rock from within its borders.  An ambassador will accept the flag on behalf of the nation and offer the rock as a symbol of commitment to the One World Vision.  Once the expedition is complete, the rocks will form part of display, upon which a One World tree will be planted.

David will commence his Expedition on 25 May by presenting Sir Andrew Likierman with the first of many One World flags.
