BRAC net, world youth community and Open Learning Campus

Sir Fazle Abed -top 70 alumni networks & 5 scots curious about hi-trust hi-tech

if jack ma starts spinning off communities for all expos alongside olympics platforms, i would happily bet franciscan cultures will play a lead role vatican community building yuouth laureates - vistitd before and aftre pope visit to usa during 2015 -talked also to club of rome secretariate - boith green and nobel peace  (marice amy mostofa) also ta;ked to some of the people who still run the funds of the clares netwirk- thois was the nuins netwirk fracis also founded which is dedicated to community's health wherever it goes
while in rome I talked to the UN"s ifad secretariat food goal 2 who co-sponsored with grameen intel 2014 un side event - eagriculture in cambodoia can multiply sme ex[portys of rice by manyfold talked to people at OAS who have]organsed pan-am youth entrepreneur competitions and people at iadb who organsied social innovations summits and value methods of place branding; viisted blum cenytre main west coast iadb partner in berkeley- saw fantastic pitch by give directly
2018 is the year of the franciscan g20 in argentina november- no g20 has emulated citizen inclusion like the china g20 in 2016 hosted out of jack ma;s home town hangzhou - see some published solutions celebrating that event for posterity at canada has been the country ion the g7 that most found its sustainability goals closer han the next 13 nations instead of the old7
talked to jon price who got special invite to torionto's jack ma trainging of 3000 who was asked tpo advise where in latinam would want to linkin
-methodology of brac, jim kim, paul farmer all insp[ired by paulo fret=re or latin am preferentail option poor movements- cannot find one usa university that lets stuidnets action learn these


2012 nobody's first year at world bank emulated jim kim- he videoed young professionals  :Take IT on" change the value chain deep profession; he flew over when Francis became Poe to ask for his support- his devoting to bottom up helth-servioce based on franscican POP idelogy; he even contributed a 10 minute segment to change world mooc which may have been the most poplular mooc segent ever- before world bank soros had intro's jim kim to fazle abed; they devekloped last mile tb health; jim kim's televideo celebratng sir fazle's 80th burthday as the greatest of servant leaders; a few months later jim kim was sitting next to jack ma at education commisison summit where jack mentioned half of all youth everywhere will be unedmployable uness we take edu outside classroom; the next day jim kim took ma to UNCTAD where jack ma was made youth entrepreneur and jim kim said that jack ma's innovation in big dasta small analysins was something every world nabank manahger needed to review

Bangladesh.s sir fazle is world laresgt ngo- girl empowerment and the revolutions fo scoial business and direct cash ytransfer  atre inspored by franciacan ideology of paulo treire; 2 years ago brac's fintech bkash became world's laregst cashless bank

4 months ago jack mas acquired 20% of bkash and sima to bank for 2 billion unbanked; professor ying lowrey is tsinghia' chair of aliresearch- jack ma general (as ooposed to fintecth aquistions) researcheres have not visoted bangaldesh or idia before - we hope bracs girl nepowerment and jacks tech can connect each other and two fifths of world people- we are hopiong oct 1 to oct 6 is first of many exchnages to and from china (can we help scout out who has big datasets eg nilekani 1 billion)

un's new head since late 2105 guterres is portuguese - he's been chnaging where he can- involved in untad now searb=hing hundres pf youth fro jack to train; asked jack and melinda gates to do digital coop report buy march 2109, new unhabitat lady former mayor lpenang with large latino secetariat; next ghead of unga lady from ecuador 

hello nicolas and roberto - latin amerincan directirs argentina region world bank
10 years ago my father and I started trying to help students set up livelihood clubs with dr muhammad yunus- i traveled over to bangladesh 15 times; helped students to make youtubes with all his main directors -with glasgow adam smith scholars published the journal of social business but things fell apart as yunus lost control of the bank and later caneelled the nobel laureates summit in joburg and atlanta both of which our friends had spent many years staging youth entrepreneur prelim events
our core group managed to stay connected with sir fazle abed of   and when my father died the japan ambassador in dhaka invited sir fazle abed and kamil quadir to explain what they were creating at
things came full circle earlier this year when jack ma took 20% partnership in bkash; the chair of jack ma aliresearch at china's pub;lic service university tsinghua is spending a week at brac at start of october- she will exchange many ideas with publication of her second book on futures jack ma wants youth to co-create eg how brac can help search for women jack ma global business school would like to train
my question to you - do you already have this sort of thing set up with student anchored networks in latin american countries? -if not is there some way we can help link you - assuming its not practical to be in dhaka we could schedule a skype - i hope this mail is redundant and already covered eg by youth preparing for argentina g20 but i am writing to doublecheck- as you may know jack ma is committed to returning mainly to education from the japan olympics on and in between worldwide youth and girls especially can also connect through japan g20 citizens groups

KERRY GLASGOWIS HUMANITY'S LAST BEST CHANCE - Join search for Sustainaabilty's Curricula

101ways-generation.docx 101 ways education can save the world WHAT IF WE DESIGNED LIFELONG LIVELIHOOD LOEARNING SO THAT so that teachers & students, parent & communities were empowered to be ahead of 100 times more tech rather than the remnants of a system that puts macihnes and their exhausts ahead of human life and nature's renewal 2016 is arguably the first time thet educatirs became front and centre to the question that Von neummn asked journalist to mediate back in 1951- what goods will peoples do with 100 times more tech per decade? It appears that while multilaterals like the Un got used in soundbite and twittering ages to claim they valued rifghts & inclusion, pubblic goods & safety, they fotgot theirUN tech twin in Genva has been practising global connectivity since 1865, that dellow Goats of V neumnn has chiared Intellectual Cooperation in the 1920s which pervesrely became the quasi trade union Unesco- it took Abedian inspired educations in 2016 ro reunite ed and tecah as well as health and trade ; 7 decades of the UN not valuing Numenn's question at its core is quite late, but if we dare graviate UN2 aeound this digital coperation question now we give the younger half if the world a chnace especially as a billion poorest women have been synchronised to deep community human development since 1970

Dear Robert - you kindly asked for a short email so that you could see if there is a CGTN anchor in east coast who might confidentially share views with my expectation of how only Asian young women cultural movements (parenting and community depth but amplified by transparent tech in life shaping markets eg health, food, nature..) can return sustainability to all of us
three of my father's main surveys in The Economist 1962-1977 explain imo where future history will take us (and so why younger half of world need friendship/sustainable adaptation with Chinese youth -both on mainland and diaspora)
 1962 consider japan approved by JF Kennedy: argued good news - 2 new economic models were emerging through japan korea south and taiwan relevant to all Asia Rising (nrxt to link the whole trading/supply chains of the far east coast down through hong kong and cross-seas at singapore)
1 rural keynsianism ie 100% productivity in village first of all food security- borlaug alumni ending starvation
2 supercity costal trade models which designed hi-tech borderless sme value chains- to build a 20 million person capital or an 8 million person superport you needed the same advances in engineering - partly why this second economic model was win-win for first time since engines begun Glasgow 1760 ; potentially able to leverage tech giant leaps 100 times ahead; the big opportunity von neumann had gifted us - knowhow action networking multiply value application unlike consuming up things
1976 entrepreneurial revolution -translated into italian by prodi - argued that future globalisation big politics big corporate would need to be triangularised by community scaled sme networks- this was both how innovation advancing human lot begins and also the only way to end poverty in the sense of 21st C being such that next girl born can thrive because every community taps in diversity/safety/ valuing child and health as conditions out of which intergenerational economic growth can spring
in 1977 fathers survey of china - argued that there was now great hope that china had found the system designs that would empower a billion people to escape from extreme poverty but ultimately education of the one child generation (its tech for human capabilities) would be pivotal ( parallel 1977 survey looked at the futures of half the world's people ie east of iran)

 - we are in midst of unprecedented exponential change (dad from 1960s called death of distance) the  tech legacy of von neumann (dad was his biographer due to luckily meeting him in his final years including neumann's scoping of brain science (ie ai and human i) research which he asked yale to continue in his last lecture series). Exponential risks of extinction track to  mainly western top-down errors at crossroads of tech  over last 60 years (as well as non transparent geonomic mapping of how to reconcile what mainly 10 white empires had monopoly done with machines 1760-1945 and embedded in finance - see eg keynes last chapter of general theory of money); so our 2020s destiny is conditioned by quite simple local time-stamped details but ones that have compounded so that root cause and consequence need exact opposite of academic silos- so I hope there are some simple mapping points we can agree sustainability and chinese anchors in particular are now urgently in the middle of
Both my father at the economist and I (eg co-authoring 1984 book 2025 report, retranslated to 1993 sweden's new vikings) have argued sustainability in early 21st c will depend mostly on how asians as 65% of humans advance and how von neumann (or moores law) 100 times more tech every decade from 1960s is valued by society and business.
My father (awarded Japan's Order of Rising Sun and one time scriptwriter for Prince Charles trips to Japan) had served as teen allied bomber command burma campaign - he therefore had google maps in his head 50 years ahead of most media people, and also believed the world needed peace (dad was only journalist at messina birth of EU ) ; from 1960 his Asian inclusion arguments were almost coincidental to Ezra Vogel who knew much more about Japan=China last 2000 years ( additionally  cultural consciousness of silk road's eastern dynamics not golden rule of Western Whites) and peter drucker's view of organisational systems
(none of the 10 people at the economist my father had mentored continued his work past 1993- 2 key friends died early; then the web turned against education-journalism when west coast ventures got taken over by advertising/commerce instead of permitting 2 webs - one hi-trust educational; the other blah blah. sell sell .sex sell. viral trivial and hate politicking)
although i had worked mainly in the far east eg with unilever because of family responsibilities I never got to china until i started bumping into chinese female graduates at un launch of sdgs in 2015- I got in 8 visits to beijing -guided by them around tsinghua, china centre of globalisation, a chinese elder Ying Lowrey who had worked on smes in usa for 25 years but was not jack ma's biographer in 2015 just as his fintech models (taobao not alibaba) were empowering villagers integration into supply chains; there was a fantastic global edutech conference dec 2016 in Tsinghua region (also 3 briefings by Romano Prodi to students) that I attended connected with  great womens education hero bangladesh's fazle abed;  Abed spent much of hs last decade hosting events with chinese and other asian ambassadors; unite university graduates around sdg projects the world needed in every community but which had first been massively demonstrated in asia - if you like a version of schwarzman scholars but inclusive of places linking all deepest sustainability goals challenges 
and i personally feel learnt a lot from 3 people broadcasting from cgtn you and the 2 ladies liu xin and  tian wei (they always seemed to do balanced interviews even in the middle of trump's hatred campaigns), through them I also became a fan of father and daughter Jin at AIIB ; i attended korea's annual general meet 2017 of aiib; it was fascinating watching bankers for 60 countries each coming up with excuses as to why they would not lead on infrastructure investments (even though the supercity economic model depends on that)
Being a diaspora scot and a mathematician borders (managers who maximise externalisation of risks) scare me; especially rise of nationalist ones ;   it is pretty clear historically that london trapped most of asia in colomisdation ; then bankrupted by world war 2 rushed to independence without the un or anyone helping redesign top-down systems ; this all crashed into bangladesh the first bottom up collaboration women lab ; ironically on health, food security, education bangladesh and chinese village women empowerment depended on sharing almost every village microfranchise between 1972 and 2000 especially on last mile health networking
in dads editing of 2025 from 1984 he had called for massive human awareness by 2001 of mans biggest risk being discrepancies in incomes and expectations of rich and poor nations; he suggested that eg public broadcast media could host a reality tv end poverty entrepreneur competition just as digital media was scaling to be as impactful as mass media
that didnt happen and pretty much every mess - reactions to 9/11, failure to do ai of epidemics as priority from 2005 instead of autonomous cars, failure to end long-term carbon investments, subprime has been rooted in the west not having either government nor big corporate systems necessary to collaboratively value Asian SDG innovations especially with 5g
I am not smart enough to understand how to thread all the politics now going on but in the event that any cgtn journalist wants to chat especially in dc where we could meet I do not see humans preventing extinction without maximising chinese youth (particularly womens dreams); due to covid we lost plans japan had to relaunch value of female athletes - so this and other ways japan and china and korea might have regained joint consciousness look as if they are being lost- in other words both cultural and education networks (not correctly valued by gdp news headlines) may still be our best chance at asian women empowerment saving us all from extinction but that needs off the record brainstorming as I have no idea what a cgtn journalist is free to cover now that trump has turned 75% of americans into seeing china as the enemy instead of looking at what asian policies of usa hurt humans (eg afghanistan is surely a human wrong caused mostly by usa); a; being a diaspora scot i have this naive idea that we need to celebrate happiness of all peoples an stop using media to spiral hatred across nations but I expect that isnt something an anchor can host generally but for example if an anchor really loves ending covid everywhere then at least in that market she needs to want to help united peoples, transparency of deep data etc
