Lockdown is inspiring people to learn in different ways. This is facilitated via online platforms like MasterClass, which shows classes by renowned experts and innovators in their field, including conservationist, Dr Jane Goodall, and American astrophysicist and planetary scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson. To support people stuck at home due to the pandemic it has launched the free series: MasterClass Live.

“MasterClass Live is directly part of our mission to democratise access to the world’s best,” said David Rogier, co-founder and CEO of MasterClass. “The Live sessions are free and across a wide range of topics from scientific thinking to interior design so everyone has a chance to learn from the best.”

Ron Finley, the self-proclaimed ‘Gangsta Gardener’ was on the most recent MasterClass Live (below) passing on advice about growing your own food, as well as plants, in any space.

Marc Buckley, Innovators Magazine’s Editor-at-large, posted on Facebook recommending Ron Finley’s MasterClass.

“Just in case your timeline or feed is filled with dystopia I wanted to share something positive. MasterClass is offering a wonderful class from my friend Ron Finley please see some of their free offerings during the crisis like this live session on facebook. Let us all re-garden (victory gardens return) the earth and become part of a Symbiotic Earth. The wisdom Ron shares speaks volumes.”

Tune in every Wednesday at 5pm pacific time or by going to the MasterClass YouTube channel. Use hashtag #MasterClassLive to add your voice on Twitter.
