Short version: The last part of our Enlightened United trilogy, 46 countries accepted the invitation, synchronized fielding. BAM!

Longer version:
(sitrep must be read with this on high volume: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mPt3Zz_xLc)

Enlightened United was created as a basis for friendship and in a spirit of "learning by doing", through three-step operations.

Every part of our trilogy had an purpose. The whole trilogy was planned and carried out for three years. Surely one of Ingress's longest plans ... (So NO, we could not have known about NIAs Exo5 and NO the project couldn’t change date. Agents had booked flight, hotel and vacations since long).
We began with a few hundred agents three years ago who have become thousands of agents now. We have laughed, cried, counted, worked hard, planned, fought and ... grown. It sometimes hurts to grow, but in all we have supported each other and in all we have grown. Together. Enlightened United is a reality. Now and beyond.

Part I: Exodus (Deploy) Cityflip tour for one year, in Sweden. 284 participants built 1774 p8 in ten cities.
Part II: United Starburst (Link) Sweden with neighboring countries. 750+ agents built a world record starburst, confirmed by NIA as the maximum number of links to a portal.
Part III: United Overload (Field) 46 countries accepted participation in a field frenzy.

It was not difficult to bring all countries into this project. There was hardly any persuasion. Because every country had and took responsibility, everything rolled. The local teams know their region the best. As project managers, Fladder and I learned how different it can look and how difficult terrain some agents have to work with. Kudos to all who climbed in mountains, went long distances and traveled to difficult places!

Synchronized, we started our fielding. This had been preceded by planned raidwork for several days. Exo5 did not facilitate our work, but at the same time it allowed us to venture decoyfields wherever it was needed.

There is so much to write about United Overload but ... it is impossible to verbalize a feeling. Every agent involved in the project was important, each one contributed to success and everyone worked together. Together!
The night between Saturday and Sunday, in mid October, agents traveled to the mountains, to islands and far into the bush. They traveled by car, bike, boats, ferries and airplanes. When the night went to dawn, we had done what we had imagined. We had synchronized built fields across much of Europe. Some participants could not complete their task because of resistance. Netherlands and Germany stood ready with 200 particpants but unfortunately they didn't make it this time. Love to you all! We hope to see you and everyone else in the next project!

We have now finished the last part of our trilogy. We can proudly say with confidence that "United we stand!". The idea all along, with this project, was to unify Enlightened agents by showing that cooperation is based on a single thing: communication and empathy for each other.

We did it.
Together.

"Let us all work together to help all human beings achieve dignity and equality; to build a greener planet; and to make sure no one is left behind.”
(UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon)
