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

help edit presentations of sir fazle abed and xi jinping and jack ma as #1 world record job creators

sir fazle here's a doc - how would you turn it into a viral video or a few slides or other collaboration stimulus of valuing investment in youth/girls as sustainability goals generation- who are the peer networks you most want to share it with- please help us question 2 different things- the people you know who you can share  it with; the people you would dream of sharing it with -what actions would you first intend resulting from the intelligence you mediate

girls empowerment and jobs-educational solutions designed with those born with least opportunities - more job creators like sir fazle start here

more on xi jinping - start here

our 3rd world record job creator is jack ma -help ma change a whole market!!

So far Jack Ma has devoted his life to two main questions

How could young chinese people learning English change the future of a chinese city (Hangzhou)?

How to pioneer use of the worldwide web in china to help peoples and communities create jobs?


Jack comes from a family of traveling entertianers whom China’s cultural revolution did not exactly favor. This may help to explain his burning curiosity and joy of  co-creating now that “anything’s possible”. He wants his extraordinary energies as an action learner and mentor to education, environment’s most urgent innovation compasses together with intergenerational health and happjness challenges.


With sir fazle and xi jinping, Jack Ma offers youth the opportunity to celebrate being the most productive and sustainable generation. If Sir Fazle and Xi Jinping are the place leaders youth need to celebrate most, then Jack Ma offers the opportunity to connect local and global in worldwide trade spaces. Now that people around the world are spending 1000 times more on communications technologies than in 1946, its critical that tech wizards and place leaders unite youth around maps that lead to the best of local and global 

While transparent place leaders cant afford to have "favorite" businessmen , the knowhow networks of jinping and ma need to have extraordinary overlaps given how innovation of IR$ happens determines livelihood possibilities

here are some of key summits to put on every student diary concerned with mapping next 2 years with correct info and so in networks that can be the solution not the problem-
if course all of this needs searching continuously for good news- particularly in chinese and english
and its a moving diary with changes everywhere that trump and jinping and whomever is your regions most critical leader go - either to peacefully co-exist or to blow up in a regional disaster such as korea's northern peninsula! in an age of hi-connectivity , leaders around the world should be collaborating so that no place ever feels that isolated
other ideas: why wouldnt 2 leaders say jinping and merkel start a survey of their nations biggest corporations- which commit their purpose as aligned to a climate or other sustainability goal; would they join in being audited and celebrated annually at a g20 - this could become a sustainability mba curriculum freely distributed on a mooc platform- once 2 national leaders start this others could be invited - until we know which 20 nations design biggest corporations to be the most sustainable ones (this is not what hapens currenltly wherever a corporation is mainly led by one sided quartely extraction of profits insetad of all round trust-flows integrating do no sustinability harm to our future generations)

You tell us
One note before this chapters sumit review
Since 1930 my family has been involved in mediating question – which of the world’s biigest organizations are expoentialuy compounding biggest risks to human sustainability and can partners be found to be in time to make life criticakl transformation
Expometial picture
This responsibility emerged from grandfather working in britisch councils in places highly impacted by the badwill of Hitler and Stalin, As a teenager my father spent his summer holidays inside consuls of such hi risk places. Therefore during hos half centiory role at The Economist of mediating end poverty, he had the advantage of knowing befire anyone else which big organsiation (eg Hitler and stalin inspired places) citiozens should not let their elected officials not to appease. At the same time Norma was over decades ahead of others in asking is the coming of this new media going to be tranfoprmable from hi-risk to pro-youth oppotunity the way he was mentored to do by Keynes. In particular could ever dumbing down aspect of the tv age be tirned into the smartest time for 7 bilion people to be empowered,
The G20 was born around 2 huge questions
Could addition of 13 nations in 365 days summit proces help 7 (and new and old media people) which had consciously or unconsciousl spun big’s geatest risks in rush to go global map actionable ways beyond exponentially colapiing system
How did China as the E1 of the 21st C fit into all the 20th centiry multilateral and other structures whose founding DNA didn’t have the remotest feel let alone optimitoc reasonomind of  consequences foir human race of Chian’s toptal transforma since lated 1960s.
You need to make your own mind up on various G20 jigsaws
At formation which g7 countrues (eg china) truly wanted a G20 with worldpossible of china the big new win-win connectoir . If you think some cloiuntreis hated that which were they.
Which of the new countries:
Wanted to partner china from te getgo iun the g20
Wanted to partner the big nations of the 20th century knowingly or unknowlingly blocking china’s and asia pacific’s role of 21st c leader
Which nations were preoccupied by their own issues (and rightfully so in that they  political instability at home)
If you have made several suitable jigsaws perhaps by challenge compasses – eg climate, education , health , finance – you might want to add to each jigsaw other nations most at risk of being ignored for the ir leapfroginhg potential. So from chapter 1 you can see the gilrs build nation capabilities of bangladshes is not only excluded from G7 and G20
but at risk of being sidelined in and of cluster of nations –either tryiong to win-win with India the hugest poplutaion in development flux, orthe stans particularly ; Pakistan was landlocked and other borders have often been carelessly been left as legacies of empires rush to disappear from places. Ironically most of the greatest solutions in eduvcation and lealth come form really small nations (norway, new zealnand, dubai)- where te nation is small enough for even the top leaders to be knlown by every community. In the case of climate, the places with the most extreme challenges in need of hi-trust long-term development partners are not much to be seen in G20 unless a member nation adopts them for purpose of transforming the network from elderly talk to pro-youth walk
IF you look at the G20 as a network of networks concerned with above hi-risk issues, timiomh of where g20 is hoted and prepared for 365 days has exytrorndinary consequences
China G20 Hangzhou Consensus 2016
Germany G20 Hamburg Lack of Consensus
Argentina G20 2018
Huge opportunity for girls and bootom uo trust networks to bridge china g20 and learn from germany as an accidenta detour
India G20 2019
Huge opportunity –eg digital platform capabilities out of nidia afre second only to china
Of course to be trusted in his mediation role with united countries of c.limate and sustainability gaols , Xi Jinping cant publicly stae what we have just written. And it is intended to provde context for collaboration debates out reaching to ever deeper cultural diversity. This is one reason why cultural diversity is sop ctiriical in every summit that jnping does have more founders control of , as does our emblem of expoentioal crisis. In the chiense language crisis include yins and yangs, last chance sto leapfrog in ways that eg the English lagiage doesn’t. When chiense youth ask that 10 times moré affordable ways of learning te English lanbgiage are made available oyr research show they mean 2 things that academic language teaching is worst at:
Quick scial confidence joys – eg using a foeeigners language to build friendships around which life involves especially now that any millennial is likely to need to be virtually productive
Very deep meaning which only youth can bridge between cultures –chartering the drama of world trade around sustainability goals to bring together  peoples even where history has engulfed peoples in wars (both across borders and by spinning internal underclasses which all te richest tacitly or directly (eg slavery) abused. Note one of the ironies of the last 150 years and the increasing dependence on the construct of nation is that boundaries were often drawn to separate people who could get on as one. The whole world of under 30s needs to make the argument that there will be more and more failed nations (and all the terrir and lost sustainabilty that implies) unless we come to terms with enemies of elder generation now need to be the friends that milennials dare to facilitate, transslate and linkin round genuinely win-win trading maps

  1. "alas poor germany -how host dismal leadership summit" -love youth franciscan g20 argentina 2018 be great

No less a brain than Albert Einstein ranked mankind’s chances of surviving the 21st C as odds against. His main concern was technology would accelerate so fast that a time would come when nations everywhere would need to simultaneously transform to a higher order system than that they were ruled by. So professins granted a monopoly by society to rule would become the main problem wherever they failed to valued new ways for humans to be productive, and their zero sum credit systems including paper currency risked locking peoples into bureaucracies that deceived themselves that they were too big to fail

In other words the happiest and freest system of democracy for entering 21st century might be opposite to that for entering 20th C.

Of course Einstein had reasons to be pessimistic – he lived through a time of world wars. To escape Hitler he had needed to become an immigrant of the United States. His greatest cultural hero was Mahatma Gandhi and how he facilitated conflicts in maasively peaceful ways – quote

This book makes the hypothesis that livelihoods are the most basic human right. And that we can search out way above zero-sum maps of trade. We invite you to help (our next generation) to keep searching for world record jib creators- providing some early examples to consider trusting most. Our heroes re not so much individuals to celebrate as being in the middle of extraordinary overlapping networks that it is worth linkin into and becoming a practicing alumni of.

Before we introduce world record job creators lets review 3 major dynamics of the first industrial revolution

IR 1 unleashed thousands then millions times more power than man or horse could produce. However this power (emerging from carbon hungry steam engines) was designed round big get bigger pressures. When countries that led the world with this power ran out of carbon and other resources they either used empires or wars to extract resources from other countries. Thus IR1 accidentally caused wars and resulted in opportunities to innovate being extremely uneven geographically. Some places peoples lives progressed hundreds of time beyond subsistence level while others remained trapped in poverty. As recently as 1969 when one segment of humans were arcing to the moon, fully a third of people lived in places without electricity grids

IR1 changed the way peoples communicated in 2 main ways; transportation infrastructures made people mobile and caused rushes from rural to city. Wherever investments in infrastructure were too little capital cities risked becoming epicenters of inequity. Slums would spiral causing ill health physically and mentally. Costs of health and safety spiral as does the trust and hope next generation need to be sustain motherv earth

Tech revolutions are intimately connected with human revolution caused by new media for massively propagating ideas. History demonstrates a societal risk associated with every form of new media. The risk is a few badwillled (or at best arrogant) people make first use of this new power. Society’s trust cultures and transparency are eroded unless the masses quickly catch up with smart ways to use the media. Note Hitler only needed the advantage of an audio tape recorder in addition to radio to massively propagate his badwill while opponents had to make every speech live. We calculate that in 2016 man was spending 1000 times more on communcations technologies than 1946. This scale of local tp global change is something every person not just Einstein needs help to navigate. There is a positive way of putting this.

In the middle of the second millennium sudden appreciation that the world was round stimulated what was then the greatest age of advances in human knowledge. As the 21st C comes of age can world record job creators guide us to the best of timess not the worst of times.

If you like sir fazle consider


Paul farmer -founded with jim kim his chief of development for over 20 years - this duo became the most energised of all medical people to bottom-up health exchanges and became world famous for demonstrating what last mile health can do while fighting the injustices of global health.  Farmer has long lived a double livelihood as head of infectious diseases  in Boston's Brigham Womens Hospital boston, and running last mile health services out of Haiti and other places. He has seen the practice in Haiti develop from the remote village outpost he founded age 24 to  mirebalais hospital centre. When a massive earthquake hit Haiti over a decade ago it destroyed the nation;s main training hospital and Paul and his friends fundraised to build Mirebalais from scratch . Inspired by this African friends have built  a new centre  co-sponsored by kigame out of rwanda with the goal of both developing the nation's health service and providing a model that all africa can adopt, Fortunately this regional base was already mature enough to become one of Africa's key mobilisation networks in the battle against Ebola.While there are experts (and world class medical trainees) distributed around around farmer at Partners in Health the vast majority of 15000 now employed are last mile para-health servants. Typically they specialise in specific treatments instead of the costs and time of achieving all round qualifications. For example in the battle against multidrug resistant tuberculosis one of farmers and kim's biggest disease specific solution franchises  - a health worker is needed to daily visit for a year to patient- so as not to catch this disease it is best to employ local workers immune because they previously survived this disease, In the poorest quarter of the world, tens if not hundreds of millions of last mile health servant jobs could be created if education and health systems were designed around last mile  and rural service specialists instead of the professional standardisation that rich nations healthcare takes for granted.

As undergrads both farmer and kim anthropologists - strong supporters of franciscan "accompaniment" and the POP model that celebrates the professional who spends time living and learning with the poorest or most in need in environments where most of the population is  eg not served by electricitry grids or running water

For decades now their catholivc mentor has been gutterez- see eg farmer on hope   

Jim kim- launched his 6 years so far at world bank ... ... with a plea that young professionals of every type apply similar bottom up changes to their profession that farmer and he had demonstarted with health - more here  As Jim was completing his first year at the world bank, Francis became the new Pope. They met to form a mutual  count on me declaration to worldwide networks of Preferential Option Poor.  

Students back in boston inspired by farmer and kim have also formed   

Young Professionals Chronic Disease Network

We are a network of over 5,000 young professionals united across 160 countries. We work online and on the ground in over 15 cities on 6 continents. Its an extraordinary network and compliments the focus of paul farmer which has been famously about infectious diseases

Leana wen -is baltimore, and probably US gutsiest public health adminstrator - she keynoted at world bank's inaugural summit for 300 youth  in development summer 2016. Listen to Leana Wen and start listing every missing curriculum of health and well being from US schools. Co-keynoting with Leana at the youth in development summit was George Patton from Austrlia- with The Lancet  he has scoped the core components of adolescent health that could be the major peer to peer curriculum of adolescence social networking. Some of these appreneticeships in wellbeing can be practused by boys and girils together- other eg menstrual health (a curriculum michele obama says his her life's main goal to distribute) need girls clubs (a demand that BRAC internationalwas the first to meet in the developing world). As recently as spring 2017, unhabitat the main agencs responsible for valuing goal 11 sustainable cities and communities admitted that focusing only on green metrics was erroneous - the  most valiud metric of sustainable city is ratings on feel safe surveyed among girls aged 10-13

Baltimore is US's original social justice city where 4 black girls were the furst to win a case law putting the 13th amendment end salary into action. They invested the proceeds in faith and educational communities whose most famous alumn Thurgood Marshall became a supreme court Judge. Today these communities are served by Al Hathaway. America desperately needs its francican inspired development leaders to cross-fertilise their action learning networks internationally and inside USA. 45 minutes from DC the planet's the most top-down city, why couldn't Baltimore-DC become the sustainability's generational paradigm of blending the best of bottom-up and top-down. Sports franchise owner Ted Leonsis is demanding his sportstars outreach to Baltimore to advance the idea that bu 2030 Baltimore-DC becomes a 25 million person conurbation in which every family flourishes. Ted's logic -and his tech friends eg at the 1776 hub co-founded by Steve Case - goes further. If Baltimore-DC doesnt become one of the top 10 superconurbations that worldwide youth value- does USA have any future as a leader of the sustainability generation's world of freedom and happiness. Baltimore has a black-american inspired coding network JUICE led by Jayfus Doswell looking for partnerships in how coding can POP the world. (see jack ma's parallel orbit out of detroit as gateway2017 , read up on don tapscott's latest briefing of blockchain pos the world attached, see jack ma on why money isnt the answer on education revolution half of youth need to be emplyable, read jeffrey sach's analysis on how congresses federal spending priorities on army, old, and bailing out bankrup banks means that there is negative federal budget to invest in youth or any innovation linked into sustainability goals, ask why the us media is designed round hatred campaigns of any national leader who asks americans whether they would like small enterprises and youth to explore win-win trades aligned to 199 nations maps of sustaiability with motherearth (or health societies generate wealthy ones not vice versa)

in pre-digital days larry brilliant led grassroots  intelligence webs needed to  end last case of smallpox; he also one of humanity's deepest connector of ending unnecessary blindness as this video shows - it tells about his friend who foubded aravind for one of the most dramatic cases of explicit microfrachising (#E's effective, efficiency, expandabiluty) outside of brac's world- (just to add some notes to  the video on aravinds costs and staffing; aravind depends on 2 main staff- cataract surgeons who are paid a competive rate but expecetd to do 3 times more operations than any other institution- patiesntservice and scheduling staff - aravind trains up  village girls in 6 weeks- whiole tehy are paid about 3 times less than fully qualified nurses being an aravind heroine is a great livelihood for a girl from the villages- overall aravind's cost to patients are about a third lower than  anywhere else for those who can afford to pay- every paying customer sponsors 2 free operations); this is how  aravind distributes the benefits of creating 10 times more value than any service franchise in its market)

World Record Job Creator 2


Our nomination for WRJC2 is the person who we believe the half of the world under 30s can trust most in hosting the world’s most dramatic meetings (and connection processes) with big decision makers on how to move for global 1.0 to global 2.0 . Let’s try and build these terms wonder visions youth could unite round


Global 1.0 worst of local and worst of global

Global 2.0 best of ,local and global

Example of best-best : hopefully we  could agree that if there is a killer disease and one drug has been invented to cure it then the best would be if everyone could access the cure.

At another level of detail it is appropriate to ask what is the cost of such a policy. This goes back to understanding exactly what was the innovation chain of the drug (often charities do a lot but then pass it over to corporate for commercialsiation). Probably nobody has worked more on how to make life saving cures equitable to both world citizens and inventors than jim  kim (chapter 1) backed up by teams of global health researchers associated with eg Harvard’s michael porter and other value chain mapmakers .

Example of worst-worst : the sort of big banking crises that spun to 2008 = arguably the peak of global 1.0

In our view. Most human beings can agree on a direction from worst to best whilst not sharing exactly the same definitions of best. What does need to be factored in are goals that urgently define a generation’s lives and livelihhod because nature of other forces will not give us a second chance. In this book we believe all 3 generations (half under 30, parents and grand parents) should take sustainability goals seriously. Maybe not all 17 goals as researched by the united nations but that does not give us any economic or social reason for failing to unite round

End poverty

End people dying before tjheir tome

End possibility that a child can be born into a place where there isn’t a fair chance to develop her livihood – eg due to war or lack of access to energy, basic health, livelihood-linked education. Always check out whats happening to girls because often their opportunities lag boys- how can changing this be a leap forward towards global2.0


Our Nomination for World Reocrd Job Creator 2 is Xi Jinping.

Some references on how jinping values youth


See his book on rejuvenation of china


Note how interprets many sustainability goals as collaboration goals which only generate livelihoods for chiense youth when they do with other youth – see endorsements of this approach – eg the head of the UN commentary on how belt road forum was a turning point in history – linking action solutions to goals that Un summits often chat about


Note pressures on china that make it logical to ssume it needs to take a world elad – eg half of the worlds people live on 10% of land within 3000 miles of Beijing -0 this makes their uses of natural resources more urgent leverage. Additionally note how many elders in china depend in their children livelihoods not the politicized social safety nets in many western nations. Also always look at how national populations vary – while half of the world’;s people are under 30 – in some rich nations this change to half are over 45; while in some African nations this changes to half are under 20! We interpret this as meaning that education needs to be epicentral to successful collaborations designing global 2.0 When you listen to Chinese media its questions on the future of education are among the smartest and constructively toughest; conversely american media’s questions on education do not seem to value youth.


Look at how often jinpings with different national leaders discuss so what youth solutions would you like to discuss




 Our way of testing this nomination is to catalogue and the main summits which xi hosts during each diary year (or help c-founds). We seek to focus on ways in which jobs action networks  including those that educators are directly empowered to embrace. All too often the history of world leaders summits has seen its duty as merely making speeches on the media- we aim to assess where did a summit process see its decision-making turned into jobs-creating education 

If you are under 30, interested in global impacts and not chinese then the 5 first ideas your mind uses to interpret what world possible opportunites to linkin with china may be among the most influential viewpoints of your life and livelihood.


We strongly recommend the debating exercise of what 5 ways to explore china to any young person interested in contributing to te sustainability generation. We will deliberately make an extremely optimistic, some would say controversial list, because world record job creation needs be joyful as well as extremely innovative, and at lest to some extent Xi Jinping represents all these open ways of celebrating humanity and moter earth


1 China more than other country is now the best one to make firneds with socilay and economically. China has the largest population –over one fifth. Depending on how you count things, Chin may already have the largest trading economy. Because of the bad banking that  other big nations got caught up in during the first decade of this century, China has far more wealth to invest in youth and future visions than anywhere else. Yet because the economic growth has been so fast , China isn’t included in many traditional  world leaders meeting eg the G7 and doesn’t get a seat proportionate to its decision-making importance in other famous multilateral organsiations from the united nations to the world bank to the IMF which were  designed  after world war 2 to try to facilitate calmer ways to progressing the human lot.  In consequence Xi Jinping has inherited a responsibility both to value ever summit of nations China is in the middle of and has taken the lead in starting up worldwide summits that didnt exist before his ten year term which started in 2012


2 China is so big that it cant afford one standard development strategy – it needs a diversity of strategies that win-win together. Probably China’s leaders are pretty happy about how the major east coast cities are thriving, and there it may be a case of making sure hi-0trust world class market leaders continue to improve reflecting what skills their sector needs each city to prioritise. China’s biggest development concern is likely to ge its landlocked Western cities. They couldn’t use the superport model the east coast supercities used and their foreign neighbors are often poor and culturally fragmented. Thios is why many of the summits jinping has founded involve maps that put these regions of china at the epicenter of searching foir win-win trading pssoibilities


3 For various reasons that are worth reflecting on, opportunities for the Chinese to ask what can be done with the internet came 10 years later than most of the rest of the world. And even to 2008, only 3 major destination webs were common – the so-called BAT (Baidu Alibaba Ten cent). Thos makes the ecosystems of startups, the very purposes of spending time  or money on the internet intriguingly different from US West coast which people outside of China may still see as the source of debates on what is the digital world for


4 In China the voice of small eneterprises in any markets sector impacted by digital remains open whereas in USA most market sectors are dominated by big corporations The consequence is that when we explore a summit that China helps co-creeate there is much more likely to be digital and small entrepreneurial voices. For example, in the west many people look at futures such as artificial intelligence or industrial revolution 4 as implying competition between machine and man for work. China doesn’t accept this- it would argue that IR4 can be mapped back as a time of exciting youth livelihoods for al who are prepared to work hard and have sufficient diverse co-worldrs networks.


5 All of the above make it likely that whomever are your nations most frendly trading partners, China’s may look very different. But we think China is pretty pragmatic. It wants win-win partners wherever it spends time cultivating exchanges. It doesn’t have any of the legacies of industrial revolution 1 empire. When for example China began its maps of investment across the continents of Africa or S America there weren’t really any no go nations because of China’s behaviours during industrial revolution 1. Perhaps most extraordinary of all-while China was a major world trading partner before the industrial revolution it then withdrew behind the great wall. The whole of China has really only come out to the world in 1976. We see that as meaning the mainland Chinese abroad is often an adventurous sort still wondering what the world has to offer. But note all the time, the Chinese diaspora have always been supertraders wherever they see a win-win   

CHINESE President Xi Jinping on Friday delivered a speech at the 12th Summit of the Group of 20 (G20) major economies.

The following is the full text of the speech:

Promoting Openness and Inclusiveness

To Achieve Interconnected Growth

Statement on the State of the Global Economy by H.E. Xi Jinping

President of the People's Republic of China

At the G20 Hamburg Summit

Hamburg, 7 July 2017

Chancellor Merkel,

Dear colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to be with you in Hamburg, the City of Bridges, to discuss ways of building a bridge of cooperation to advance our shared prosperity. First of all, I express heartfelt appreciation to you, Chancellor Merkel, and the German government for your warm hospitality.

The global economy is showing signs of moving in the right direction. The related international organizations forecast that it will grow by 3.5 percent this year, the best performance that we have seen in several years. This would not be possible without the efforts of the G20. On the other hand, the global economy is still plagued by deep-seated problems and faces many uncertainties and destabilizing factors.

Facing such challenges, the G20 agreed in Hangzhou last year on the path forward: building an innovative, invigorated, interconnected and inclusive world economy. This year, building on the theme of the Hangzhou Summit, the Hamburg Summit has made "Shaping an Interconnected World" its theme. What we need to do now is to work together to translate our vision into action. With this in mind, I wish to state the following:

Firstly, we should stay committed to building an open global economy. This commitment of the G20 to build open economies saw us through the global financial crisis, and this commitment is vital to reenergizing the global economy. Various international organizations have revised upward forecast for this year's global growth, mainly because of a projected 2.4 percent growth for global trade and 5 percent growth for global investment. We must remain committed to openness and mutual benefit for all so as to increase the size of the global economic "pie". As the world's major economies, we should and must lead the way, support the multilateral trading system, observe the jointly established rules and, through consultation, seek all-win solutions to common challenges we face.

Secondly, we should foster new sources of growth for the global economy. Innovation, more than anything else, is such a new source of growth. Research shows that 95 percent of the world's businesses are now closely linked with the Internet, and the global economy is transitioning toward a digital economy. This means we should boost cooperation in digital economy and the new industrial revolution and jointly develop new technologies, new industries, new business models and new products. Another source of growth derives from making greater efforts to address the issue of development and implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and such efforts will both benefit developing countries and generate business and investment opportunities for developed countries. In other words, this will be a win-win game for all. At the Hangzhou Summit last year, we reached important consensus on innovation and development. This momentum of cooperation created has been sustained this year under the German chairmanship of G20. Going forward, we should see that more substantial and concrete outcomes are delivered.

Thirdly, we should work together to achieve more inclusive global growth. Currently, global economic growth is not balanced, and technological advances work against job creation. According to the projection of the World Economic Forum, artificial intelligence will take away more than 5 million jobs in the world by 2020. The G20 has an important mission, which is to reaffirm the vision of pursuing inclusive growth agreed upon at the Hangzhou Summit last year, and strike a balance between fairness and efficiency, between capital and labor, and between technology and employment. To achieve this goal, we must ensure synergy between economic and social policies, address the mismatch between industrial upgrading and knowledge and skills, and ensure more equitable income distribution. The G20 needs to place more importance on cooperation in education, training, employment, business start-up and wealth distribution-related mechanisms, as progress on these fronts will make economic globalization work better.

Fourthly, we should continue improving global economic governance. In the wake of the global financial crisis, the G20 has done a lot to improve macroeconomic policy coordination, reform international financial institutions, tighten international financial regulation and combat tax avoidance, thus ensuring financial market stability and recovery. We should build on these achievements. In particular, we should strengthen coordination of macroeconomic policies, forestall risks in financial markets and develop financial inclusion and green finance to make the financial sector truly drive the development of the real economy.

China recently hosted a successful Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation. Acting in the spirit of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits, the forum participants achieved fruitful outcomes in terms of boosting the connectivity of policies, infrastructure, trade, finance and people. Guided by a new vision of governance, we built a new platform of cooperation to tap into new sources of growth. The commitment of the Belt and Road Forum is highly compatible with the goal of the G20.

A German saying goes to the effect that, "Those who work alone, add; those who work together, multiply." In this spirit, let us work together to promote interconnected growth for shared prosperity and build toward a global community with a shared future.

Thank you.

this is quite an interesting web where about 40 countries have shared what they say they are doing on goals - of course it could all be stories not reality but at least you can compare side by side who siad what

i suggest youth exchanges should compare their country's declaration with china's which is currently as follows

2016 National Voluntary Reviews at the High-level Political Forum

In September 2015, H.E. Xi Jinping, President of China, attended the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit and joined other leaders in endorsing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, providing guidance to national development of member states and international development cooperation in the next 15 years.

As the largest developing countries in the world, China has always place development as the first priority. The 13th Five-Year Plan was reviewed and approved by the Fourth Session of the 12th National People’s Congress in March 2016, defining the development concept featuring innovative, coordinated, green, open, and shared development. In the coming years, China will pursue innovative development and improve the quality and efficiency of development. Coordinated development will be promoted to form a balanced structure of development. China will pursue green development by promoting a green and low-carbon development model and lifestyle, protecting ecological system. It will make great efforts to deepen opening-up, thus realizing win-win cooperation. Shared development will be facilitated to improve people’s well being. China will seek coordinated development in the economic, political, cultural, social and ecological fields in order to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects as planned.

China attaches great importance to implementation of the 2030 Agenda and believes that the principles of Peaceful Development, Win-win Cooperation, Integration and Coordination, Inclusiveness and Openness, Sovereignty and Voluntary Action, as well as “Common but Differentiated Responsibilities”, should be followed in building a new type of international relations featuring win-win cooperation, establishing all-round partnership, and achieving economic, social and environmental development in a balanced manner. Countries should be encouraged to formulate their domestic development strategies and take measures to implement the 2030 Agenda in accordance with national conditions and respective characteristics, while the means of implementation should be allowed to be differentiated, due to diversified national conditions and respective capabilities.

China suggests that 9 key areas should be prioritized in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. These areas are:

  • Eradicating poverty and hunger through targeted measures to alleviate and eliminate poverty, and enhancing agricultural production capacities and food security.
  • Implementing innovation-driven development strategies and generating momentum for sustainable, healthy and stable economic growth.
  • Advancing industrialization to inject impetus to coordinated development between urban and rural areas and among the three dimensions of sustainable development.
  • Improving social security and social services to ensure equal access to basic public services.
  • Safeguarding equity and social justice to improve people’s well-being and promoting all-round human development.
  • Protecting the environment and building protective barriers for eco-security.
  • Addressing climate change actively and integrating climate change response into national development strategies.
  • Promoting efficient utilization of resources and sustainable energy.
  • Improving national governance and ensuring economic and social development in line with the rule of law.

Implementing the 2030 Agenda is a systemic project. The international community needs to provide sound support from five dimensions including:

  • Strengthening capacity building of countries so as to improve institution building, increase public resources, and generate internal growth momentum.
  • Creating an enabling international environment for development, building a balanced, win-win and inclusive multilateral trading system and improving global economic governance.
  • Engaging with all stakeholders and working towards a more equitable and balanced global partnership for development.
  • Promoting coordination mechanism and incorporating development policy into global macroeconomic policy coordination.
  • Improving follow-up and review by conducting regular reviews of global implementation progress while review of national implementation would be done according to respective national conditions and the principle of voluntary action.

2016 is the first year of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. China has made great efforts in its implementation, linking the 2030 Agenda with domestic mid-and-long term development strategies. The domestic coordination mechanism for the implementation, comprised of 43 government departments, has been established to guarantee the implementation. Great efforts has been be made to publicize the 2030 Agenda nationwide in order to mobilize domestic resources, raise public awareness, and creating favorable social environment for the implementation. China will also strengthen inter-sector policy coordination, review and revise relevant laws and regulations to provide policy and legislative guarantee for the implementation. In the next 5 years, China is determined to lift all the 55.75 million rural residents living below the current poverty line out of poverty, and to double its GDP and people's per capita income of 2010. China has already released the Position Paper on the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which reflects China’s views on the principles, priorities, policies and progress made in the implementation of the 2030 agenda. The position paper has been circulated as an UN General Assembly document to member states in April. China will also issue its national plan of implementing the 2030 Agenda this year and share its development experience with other countries.

As the G20 Presidency this year, China puts development issues at the heart of the G20 agenda, and lists Inclusive and Interconnected Development as one of the four key agenda items. With China’s efforts, G20 has placed the issue of development in a prominent position in its global macro policy framework for the first time, to optimize development policy coordination. It is the first time that G20 members has jointly drafted a collective action plan on the 2030 Agenda to inject political impetus into the global implementation progress on the 2030 Agenda. And it is also the first time that G20 has discussed the issues of Supporting Industrialization in Africa and Least Developed Countries to actively respond to demands of developing countries, especially African countries. China has also convened outreach dialogues with non-G20 countries and invited the largest numbers of development countries in G20 history to participate in all activities this year, to ensure that G20’s actions meet outside expectations.

As a responsible and large developing country, China will continue to actively take part in global development cooperation. It has provided support for more than 120 developing countries in achieving MDGs. In the future, China will deepen South-South cooperation to help other developing countries to implement the 2030 Agenda. China is currently implementing the measures announced by President Xi Jinping during his attendance at UN Summits Marking the 70th Anniversary, providing other developing countries with support in financing, technology and capacity building. China is making preparations for the Assistance Fund for South-South Cooperation, which will be put into operation as soon as possible. The Academy of South-South Cooperation and Development has been established and starts global enrollment in 2016, which will provide developing countries with opportunities for doctor’s degree and master’s degree education and short-term training. China has signed agreements on China-UN Peace and Development Fund with the UN and the fund will be put into operation in 2016 to finance projects concerning peace and development. China will carry forward the Belt and Road Initiative and promote the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New Development Bank and other institutions to play greater roles with a view to making contribution to global development.

Looking ahead, China will shoulder the responsibility of implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, follow a development path featuring mutual benefit, win-win results and common development, and work with all countries to build a better future of sustainable development for all mankind.

as you know jack ma is transforming the olympics- please see who is helping him in tokyo- it would make sense if the female governor of tokyo is because they are both on the education commission


things to look for


1 how to continue arts/cultures and spirits eg zen/tao expo before and after olympics- friends in rome wanted to do lot on that too; before the tokyo olympics the biggest worldwide event is g20 argentina next summer (this is the franciscan- bottom up event that any student 2017/2018 has best chance to network under 30s into) - if that doesnt tip global 2.0 towards bottom up girl empowerment partnerships and leapfrog possibilities for digital (big data small) it will never happen - maurice and camilo understand latin cultures 100 times moire than the rest of us circulated- of course we need more connections 


hiro and atsu introduced me to someone 2 years ago who was trying to chnage sprts to include everyone


in washington dc very big is head of the special olympics (where will his team first meet ma's)- his other huge network has spent 25 years on emotional learning (as you know ma calls that LQ or Q of love but they are the same idea networks on revolutionising why we need teachers who love theoir students enough to get rid of all the traps from very bad student unions to costly and jobless degree certificate monopolies) - i am trying to understand which wise networks link that in


ma has indicated that from 2020 he will mainly focus on 3 areas 

happjness and health



before that he has to sort out who he trusts with blockchain, big data small apps and other hi-tech dynamics of humanising an AI world


how do we make sure that anyone we could know in tokyo is tracking how to help his projects as they emerge


there is also the question as to whether ban ki-moon will be appointed to a new position in ioc responsible for ethics;


the announcement of both 2024 and 2028 olympics at same time in september is also part of ma's doing as he has clarified he is partnering olympics for 8 years as it shutles to LA and paris


as always finding way into partnering some of jack ma's projects is critical to amy; i am not happy that back in dc we have connected with under armor and leonsis and the chinese tech networks that advise the governor of maryland and supported by eg ben carson yet -; i assumed baltimore people would do that but now realise its likely i will have to


as you may know the epicentre em;powering youth to experiment in education was qatar- due to the political crisis there they have to relay on their 2 conference location partners madrid and beijing - probably i am the only person who doesnt work for qatar to have attended both events- however yuxuan is the uber networker of wise under 30s as amy can explain; we are still struggling with how to include all of sir fazle's knowhow 5 years after he spent 4 hours briefing 25 people at japan embassy in dhaka on the help he most wanted- again i am very frustrated that so few people really care about sir fazle- it comes down to 17 years of clintons and others promoting the less relevant part of bangladesh around muhamamd yunius and microcreditsummit which lost all of its integrity to the same big banking foes that have destroyed youth opportunities in all once wealthy western nations


the new book on how bankrupt usa is ever to invest in youth by jeffrey scahs is worth reading as is anyine who can advise amy on whetrher to gtry and get into any of jeffrey scahs projects when she starts at columbia university next months


so there is a lot to collaborate around i assume people will check with amy if they want deep practical details that concern her chinese peers most


if anyone knows place leaders who want to join in the worlds number 1 green places networks, that is led lout of korea bu the governor of the island that was the host of aiib 2017- fortunately 2 brits (one of whom my family know well) are extremely influential in aiib - indeed they are probably the last british voice to have any influence on anything thats as fast moving as jack ma and xi jinping in this brexited world

Ma’s tour to changing markets so every young person enjoys great livelihood opps


Please note – all editorial improvements to tour welcome; goal is all hard working youth (especially girls who history excluded) can expect to enjoy these opportunities


MA1 Markets where shops were key

In some ways these were the simplest for ma’s digital wizards to web into  first digital platforms. In the west digi-commerce started round eg amazon and ebay. However from the getgo, ma was interested in a twist- digital yellow pages- what sme business networks could also be linkedin


MA2 By 2000 sustainability’s worlds biggest question: what was the most scaleable human purpose of universal connectivity by text mobile. Bangladesh and kenya’s greatest end poverty entrepreneurs were convinced : bank a billion unbanked. Mpesa won the race as first to scale out of kenya – its model of cashless banking is now world largest in Bangladesh. All of this showed that financial services could be returned to credit everyone starting with the hard working poorest. Fortunately Jack Ma’s timing was exquisite. He created alipay out of the ashes of big banks burnt by sub-prime, and basing his market on smart mobile connectivity. Not only did alipay become china’s main marketmaker of digital cash transactions but big-data-small-analysis enabled ant financial to become the worlds’s first social credit ratings epicenter


MA3 Because of china capitalism unique evolution- effectively only 3 internet companies were licensed through 2000s – the big 3 have become “cloud” /platform etc ecosystems for all sorts of start ups and markets for apps. Moreover, digital assets are regarded in china as more valuable to grow productive human futures with than bricks assets


MA4 This leaves a lot of tough markets that jack- and his alumni and partners - is interested in changing including

Entertainment media


Health services

Green services


MA5 Many of these will depend on whether place governments agree that big data small wizards are essential to social blockchains


There are some markets ma would probably be wise never to get into unless there is some smart analysis that becomes the markets main value driver – eg planes, big ships, trains. These may be the last markets that nations quarrel over as it doesn’t make sense for every nation to compete to build planes. Meanwhile jobs and sustainability of all of our youth depends on the markets that jack and his friends inspire everyone to collaboratively build. Worldwide youth “must” be the biggest and best economy of the 21st century dwarfing the big national markets of 20th C. We say “must” because sustainability deadlines cannot be achieved locally let alone globally without all hardworking youth enjoying great livelihoods.


Parallel reference: why infrastructures markets are a special case – which governments need to help citizens as well as digital wizards map everywhere

Entrepreneurial Revolution - an investigation started at The Economist in the 1970s as to whether intergenerational investments in future systems would empower the net generation to be exponentially sustainable. Surveys of the next 40 years asked questions of 2015-2025 such as:

Would the global financial system be designed to sustain or collapse local communities?

Would 2015-2025 be the under 30s most exciting and productive time to be alive as they linked in sustainability of the human race.  Would the parts of the Western hemisphere that advanced the industrial revolution's empires demand that its politicians, professions and academics "happily get out of the way of the sustainability generation being led by the half of youth living within 3000 miles of Beijing"?

POP -Preferential Option Poor

Would every community's most trusted practitioners be educator, health servant and banker.

Number 1 in Economics for Youth

xxx - dedicated to girls and boys who survived wars (worldwide or region's Belt Roads)

Top 10 Right Old Muddles

I was tidying up my father's office when I came across a little black book. It was a diary. Many pages were headed Another Right Old Muddle.  There in not much more text than a twitter profile of a young man. The bottom line was replicated on every page . XXX YYY flew off at 8am and did not return

Dad was one of the luckiest ones. He survived world war 2. While spending his last days as a teenager navigating arirplanes over mkodernday Myanmar and Bang;ades he had a lot pf down time. He had 3 books with him - from adam smit, maynard keynes, and a biography of gandhi. From war he went to Corpoius Chrfiost Cambrodge where he was one of the last to be mentired by none other than Keynes - theleading end poverty systems journalist of his era. In late 1947 dad started righting 45 yeras of leaders for The Economist. Here then are 10 right old muddles we will need to help giorls and boys livelihoods mediate now if our species is to sustain another century let alone a milleenium

leap beyond 10 old muddles

1 value girls - eg brac girls or the most couargeous and loving under 30s gorls entrpreneurs - eg AC Ori YC - have you met a woman under 30 who you'd vote for as matching these extraordinary multipliers of goodwill and action? Or an elder they all wish to be an alumni of - eg sir fazle abed

2 value girls, boys, those born poorest - three ha;ves of the world youth, women, poor- all have less than 10 per cent share of voice in the future of their generation - if your born into all 3 of these categories you used to have less than zero positiuve say- until from 1972 sir fazle abed started to empower vilage girls to buuild a nation - and along the way he interescted 3 times with china who had also gone through the cutiral revolution of girls hold up half the sky. This was good news because the peoples connected by the south and east asian coatsal belts number half the world's population- thio9se that had been most victiomised by Britannia- thise that the books of adam smith, keynes and gandhi provide suffiecnt slues to know how to value sustainability and action networks sdgs - should that be a job worthy of all of us alive tioday.

3 understand that the root cause of world wars was need to end colonisation -whiuch inkconevneintly was how large countriues developed between 1500 and 1946

4 Celbrate belt road trading models that go beyiond colonisation with win-win tyrades 

5 First learn from any period in history when positive currencies or other mechnaisms permitted win-win trading to be mapped- identify the expoemtial balance rising or crashing that history revolved round

6 Clarify the unprecdented chnage that is defing life of the 3 generations mainly responsible for 1946-2030- technolgy's moore law in any forms that grand parent parents and youth could be educating each other one

7 Correct the desin ofault in empire education Adam Smith was forst to clarify- it was never to desinged to avlue youth , their livelihhods, innovation forces

8 Agree that as well as coms tech (digital and real world, human and artifician intelligence) compounding round us - we needed to celebrate chnaging machine and huiman sources of energy  to be renewable amd to keep commons resources like wagter and air clean

9 Understand that the west's 3 main corporate forms and their lawyers needed transfromation if all peoples places are to be sustainable. MOre than that we need to freinds each other helping each other nations out of hostory's system traps. Any media that doesnt do that is fame media'

10 Wherever politicians or their academkic hacks tell you there isnt enough work for youth to do- something is desperatly wriong with the education, economics and valuation metrics being siued. THere is so much work to be done if we are to lap beyong systesm that are expoebntaoly crashing towards extinction. These are the most exciting tiemns to be alive- our family trees of grandparent parents youth are detemining whether tere will be any moore tres

Happy 80th birthday by 100000 people of  BRAC to Sir Fazle Abed


The seeds of BRAC were planted in the efforts of Sir Fazle and friends to assist families affected by the Bhola cyclone in 1970. BRAC was then officially established after independence, supporting refugees to rebuild their lives. At a critical early juncture , we abandoned our focus on relief and adopted a longer-term objective of development, opting to work side by side with community members for decades to come.

We do not ignore emergencies and their impact on people living in poverty. We build community preparedness and grassroots platforms that activate in natural disasters to minimize damage and to channel relief. Our goal is to help households bounce back better.

Better often means changes such as stronger infrastructure or new livelihoods for families that depend on agriculture, for example, and are therefore increasingly vulnerable to climate change.

As Bangladesh urbanizes, we have expanded our focus to include manmade disasters like fires and building collapses, most recently Rana Plaza in 2013.

Massive natural disasters internationally have triggered us to expand into new countries  like Haiti and Nepal to support national recovery the way we did in Bangladesh so many years ago

2 Healthy Lives and healthy futures

Doctors and hospitals were scarce in Bangladesh’s early days. We created an army of community-based entrepreneurs to bring medicine to every doorstep. Over time, the army became all female, challenging social norms and enabling women to access important products and information

Mary, and friends:  after leaving qatar mid novmenber,  where 3 of top 10 sustainability summits of next 15 months  prior to beijing belt road 2.0 may 2019 were announced on behalf of wise education laureates and with the blessing of antonio guterres...this brac tour has been my main focus- all errors are therefore mine; good parts javeed's amy's mostofa's .." bgcolor="#000000" valign="top" height="175"> - can you help with new york agency for global2.0...

Peter – I don’t know where education fits with everything you audit but any errors in following review of all the neighbors of china’s belt roads are mine alone

Mary my main question– do you know anyone in Indias, China, Bangladesh or elsewhere who loves touring BRAC and girls empowered solutions to ultra sustainability chalenges. If so, please could you introduce them to one or three of A) Javeed, B) Mostofa, C) Amy whose facilitation/personal networking roles are as follows:


 Javeed after a business and education career as part of the India Diaspora in New York, whom I met at wise and jointly interviewed everyone we could reach at Qatar Foundation ,  is dedicated to sharing everything he can find with India educators; mostofa who grew up in Bangladeshi villages is our organizing guide of brac; of 10 trips he has organised since 2007, the last one took chinese graduates like amy to sir fazle’s 80th birthday party- attached is brac’s own birthday history of sir fazle’s 45 years. Amy who grew up in Hunan villages is currently post graduating at columbia’s earth institute in new york while her fellow companion yuxuan is Rhodes scholar in Oxford and daughter of public servants in china’s province bordering North Korea,.

Happy 80th birthday by 100000 people of  BRAC to Sir Fazle Abed

Massive natural disasters internationally have triggered us to expand into new countries  like Haiti and Nepal to support national recovery the way we did in Bangladesh so many years ago

2 Healthy Lives and healthy futures

Doctors and hospitals were scarce in Bangladesh’s early days. We created an army of community-based entrepreneurs to bring medicine to every doorstep. Over time, the army became all female, challenging social norms and enabling women to access important products and information

We challenged the global health community by putting the life saving treatment for diarrheal disease in the “unqualified” hands of mothers, and generated evidence that they could use it effectively. We created a community-based tuberculosis control model, expanding over time to become the government’s largest partner in combating the disease.

The growing numbers of people living in poverty in urban areas face serious health risks, including maternal and infant mortality. Our network of healthcare entrepreneurs continues to ensure that women can access care safely, quickly, and with dignity.

Recent breakthroughs in cognitive science have shown that focusing on early childhood development has transformative effects over a lifetime. Pilot programmes are putting this research into action at the grassroots level

The primary challenge of healthcare now is less about access and more about quality. We  are building financial tools to continuously ensure more people can access services that meet their evolving health needs.



We started by teaching basic literacy to adults, then realised we needed to start from the start.  We changed our nor-formal primary schools as “second chances’ for people living in poverty especially girls. Our pedagogy focused on joyful learning, incorporating the best practices from around the world.

As students graduated from our schools. We felt a need for creative ways to continue learning beyond the classroom. Libraries offered reading materials, and adolescent clubs created safe spaces and opportunities to teach life skills.

Our focus moved towards quality, with universal access towards education in sight, through strategies such as teacher training and increased use of technology. We proactively recruited students with special needs and expanded our curriculum into multiple ethnic languages to ensure that our schools were successful to all children.

Our ultiimate goal is to build a nation, and for that we need leaders. That is where our focus is now – creating opportunities for youth to take responsibilities in programmes, as mentors, and as teachers themselves. Our university creates even more opportunities to contribute on a global scale.

4 Financial Inclusion

We started by bringing people living in poverty together. We quickly learnt that what they needed most urgently was access to economic opportunities and financial services.

We brought women together into village organizations to organize credit and savings arrangements, and then used these meetings as a platform by delivering a wider range of services.

Over time, we expanded our reach to unserved populations, such as the “missing middle” (enterprises that were too large for the loans offered by microfinance but excluded from commercial banks) and a comprehensive grants based programme for people living with poverty, who could not benefit from microfinance.

We are now building a broader set of financial products, including insurance and pensions, and leveraging the growing ownership of mobile phones to use digital channels for financial services.

5 Market Solutions for the Poor

A fundamental driver is a lack of power – at the individual, household and community level alike... Power dynamics need to change in order for people living in poverty to realize their potential , and they only change when people do it themselves.

We promoted consciousness raising and empowerment from our earliest interactions with communities, inspired by teachings on social movements. We underestimated the complexity of power dynamics though and learned the hard way that we needed to create new organisations, where women could come together in solidarity. These community action groups became important social platforms; for example, supporting health workers who faced harassment for their services.

We widened our work over time to help people living in poverty to participate in formal government structures and leverage public services. We also increased our engagement with public official and village leaders to build wider support for women’s empowerment. These discussions have risen to the national level, where we advocate policies that support gender equality and human rights. Internally we have worked to build a female-friendly work environment and actively strive to recruit women.

Gender equality remains one of the greatest unfinished works of our generation, and an area in which we have to continue changing power dynamics. We still see that child marriage is the norm, sexual violence is pervasive, and women are under-represented in the workforce.


6 Changing Power Dynamics

As we began to provide financial services to people living in poverty, we noticed that many rural communities did not have access to markets

We started building value chains, connecting thousands of farmers and artisans to national markets. We focused on silk, poultry, clothing and retail, in many cases the viability of new sectors in Bangladesh. The successful scaling up of one value chain often spawned new livelihood opportunities, from poultry vaccinations to artificial insemination for dairy cows.

Entrepreneurship is also a long standing part of our development approach. Over time we have built a national cadre  of local change agents, usually women, who receive training and support from us, but are paid for their services by their neighbours. These grassroots entrepreneurs distribute a wide variety of products and services, from sanitary napkins to high quality seeds.

As local and global labor markets offer new opportunities. We are supporting migrants to seek and finance work abroad safely,  and equip youth with in-demand skills



By 2002 we had over 30 years experience of piloting and perfecting programs, and scaling them to reach millions. The time had come to bring what we had learnt in Bangladesh to the rest of the world.

Relief and rehabilitation were immediate needs after war and natural disasters plunged millions into poverty in Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. We focused on peace and building stability through jobs, education and financial inclusion, continuing to put girls and women at the centre of opportunities.

We expanded into Africa four years later, starting development programs in Tanzania and Uganda. We continued to pilot, perfect and scale rapidly never losing focus on contextualising every opportunity created

Opening now in 12 countries gives us a rich knowledge base to further our work in Bangladesh, while providing us with a global network in which to pilot new solutions for the world’s problems. In 2016, we create opportunities for one in every 50 people in the world...





Before a tour guide to brac/bangladesh- here’s a brief review of all of China’s neighbors and why the old English Raj is in population terms the biggest of china’s belt road tours and new development searches. Brett’s x times great grand father JAMES WILSON started this tour with Queen Victoria – after founding The Economist to help her debate what was London doing to Ireland (see current pbs episode of Victoria) he was dispatched to Calcutta started standard bank, died 1860 of diarrhea 9 months into the project. His son-in-law Walter Bagehot refocused on English constitution and pound sterling as commonwealth reserve currency with Victoria.

Accidentally the next time The Economist had a sub-editor with east west experience was my dad who waa a teenage navigator over modernday Myanmar in world war2 , who married the daughter of sir Kenneth Kemp whose 25 years as Mumbai chief justice mediating Gandhi ended up writing up legalese of india’s independence; most of dad’s first 20 years  The Economist celebrated the East’s post colonial win-win economies ie japan s korea Chinese diaspora superports (archives) and by 1976 asked americans to celebrate asian pacific china global century as much as their own third century.

online library of norman macrae--

At the time of moon landing dad started his other main dialogue of the 20th C  world’s favorite viewspapre  – Entrepreneurial Revolution – assuming the world was in 1968 destined to spend 1000 times more on commons tech in 2016 versus 1946 would we transform education to sustain all millenials livelihoods or the opposite?



1 China’s east coast supercity connection are great : every positive win-win trading future can be dreamed with them : the superports and trains are ready to connect more than half the world’s economy which is how sustainability mapmaking should be with half the world’s people living within 3000 miles of Beijing but crowded in to less than 10% of the earth’s land


2 china’s border with asean looks pretty good ( asean with singpaore as its cultural soul is in top 6 development miracles with china mainland , china superports diaspora, s korea , japan , Bangladesh girls)


3 Now we come to the crucial corridor Myanmar Bangladesh India Pakistan – all old British Raj; what important to bring 2020 vision to first

Bangladesh is a key coastline – if it had a superport that united all trade interest on china India Bangladesh Myanmar that would change more girls lives than any single superport anywhere

The miracles of Bangladesh and mainland china both started at beginning of 1970s. In fact to start with japan shared rice science in a partnership with brac and china that was number 1 solution in ending famine. However china developed with the diaspora (the 3rd greatest financial power by the 1970s) inward investing in superb infrastructure; bangladesh girls had to build their nation with what aid they could turn into sustainable social business (the invention many people believe muhammad yunus designed but actually brac did. See The Economist article it wasn’t microcredit it was BRAC)

4 Next we come to Pakistan corridor to united arab emirates and thence djibouti to Africa, up the suez and through the Mediterranean sea- the brilliant new maritimne silk road

5 As you continue tour of landlocked neighbors, its impossible for china to make anything much better without mediating Russia’s goodwill. Even the ovetland Chinese Express to west Europe passes through the Shanghai Cooperation neighbours of which Russia is a core dynamic , and which India joins for the first time as full member this year (2 incredible summits in june aiib Mumbai and SCO qingdao)" bgcolor="#000000" valign="top" height="175"> thanks AmyChina QuarterBillionGirls

6.1 You then have 4 trajectories through Russia but which you can also call the artic belt road. One is direct trade route to Nordica via st Petersburg which organisies a major annual economic summit- here the shared by 8 countries and pivoting out of finland is the best news of all new universities of 2018 following damo as best news of 2017" bgcolor="#000000" valign="top" height="175"> and welcomes all open technology heroines...

6.2 Direct route to Moscow – essentially what is the strategic future of Russian and East Europe people  the west  (EU) had first chance to mediate if the fall of the berlin wall had been about more than reuniting Germany

6.3 Direct north through mongolia – quite an unpopulated region but potentially renewable as pivotal natural space

6.4 north east where the dream has always been a runnel across Bering Strait so that north east Eurasia Alaska Canada West Coast usa van all be one supertrain corridor as well people spaces that are totally complementary as sustainable economies if 20th c borders hadn’t been erected primarily by stalin

6.5 Of course the last border challenge: as neighbors turn full circle is north korea- here we have 30 million underdeveloped people ; they too need one superport; this solution can really only come about if russia china japan and south jorea start to trust each other

I welcome being told what stories youth should map differently than above; if I have over-simplified or got them wrong please don’t throw out the brac and bangaldesh superport challenge without looking at it in more detail. 

First if you put a straight railway line from Beijing to xi’an to chengdu to the coast you would almost hit the Myanmar-bangladesh border- at cox’s bazzar which yunus and my father discussed as needing to be a superport with 50 people at the royal automobile club london in feb 2008! Second if you did a railway from chengdu to Gwadar you would almost pass through new delhi thus opening up all the route to emirates : Oman , Djibouti and Adrican silk road, suez and med sea silk road. But third if you review every sustainability goal in terms of which communities face the hardest entrepreneurial challenges you would come back to bangaldeshi girls as still being the SDG17 world's most vital youth partners. If climate goes wrong there will be more initial flooding of peoples along bangladesh coastline than anywhere. Brac has designed an economy where communities and girls networks maximizing their own capacities to build the future. This is the story that all of sheihka moza’s wise partmers can honor as brac was their first educational laureate and now that guterres has asked them to stage the girls and refugee learning summits at the UNGA Sept 2018.


Key people in choosing what goes on at this summit are thes ame UN eminent sdg goals panel as aiib is reporting on both at aiib Mumbai 2018 and argentina g20 july 2018. All of brac’s organisational dna is francsican (Paulo Freire) as is all of jim kim’s prior work at partners in health with paul farmer amd george soros. You cant do global last mile health services without brac style networking. Fortunatley jim kim’s last job before he joined the world bank was to make pih’s lab in africa in rwanda with kagame who now chairs the african union. .

So it is that goodwill with china’s immediate neigbors connects through to goodwill in middle esst, Africa, med sea nations (the happiest in the old silk road before 1500 but today the refugee and isis crisis hotspots),  and ultimately brac and girls are at the crossro9ads of a muslim francsican coinfucian fusion of families build healthy economies across generations not vice versa 


The G7’s win-lose macroeconomics computes big data big; this is not mathematically correct let alone exponentially sustainable if you refer to Einstein and von Neumann., and it will not produce the human ai  (or the truth media) we now despearately need to celebrate if little sister sustainability world is to be the end game instead of orwallian big brother. These are the most excitiing tiness to be alive. What we do with tech of banking and education over the next few years determines species sustainability.

In 1972 BRAC began as a training network in an area where 1 million people had be killed by a cyclone and there was no infrastructure left- who could reconstuct what; it was always building community self capacity – home and safety  (to this day brac employs more barefoot lawyers than bangladesh has police stations), local food security, local helath security, a jobs-led education system, and villagers own value chains and finance. starting in villages with no electricity and illiteracy; its first primary schools trained women; who then became teachers. The newly indepenentent national government didnt have enough taxes to develop the cities so it let brac be the public self-service of villages. BRAC is the ultimate Paulo Freire action learning network; it scaled across villages person to person to 1996. Then the parallel network yunus started 11 years after brac was first to test mobile and microsolar connectivity. However at its height yunus only owned one third of grammen phone. Brac maintained total ownership of its digitalization – today it connects the largest cashless banking sstem in the workl – the coding superstars from this are the same bangladeshi americans who started with yunus but now linking mit dubai legatum and Nick Hughes the original coders of mpesa- bill gates networks comes to brac to study how to try to do cashless banking elsewhere. However in bangladesh bkash connects with every network as does brac education. In africa and afghanistan where one major partner per country asked brac to join in, adolesecent girls clubs are the main hub for educational networking ( only one of 10 main moving parts of brac back in bangladesh). Bangladeshi girls empower a fusion of edutech and fintech in ways that every poorest nation needs to benchmark before its has a chance to get to the superhighways of development that China is. So as in a 2006 bangaldesh dialogue paper put it – three giants need to grow up together China India and Bangladesh if you search to achieve the deepest sustainability goals and not to leave the bottom 20% out of the sustainability goals era.

Since 1999 Brac formed a university - its signature course is the James Grant School for public health servants - the first lesson module brac ever scaled across the village mothers network was oral rehydration which saved a quarter of infants lives; james then head of unicef took to having a pack of the sugar-salt mix in his suit and demonstrating it at every royal dinner table he graced...


Our favorite is the new economy of valuing world's poorest girls-  brac, founder Sir Fazle Abed, is the world's most knowledgable network in empowering girls sustainability- started in bangladesh in 1972 its first 25 years of grassroots networking was entirely face to face as bangladeshi girl villagers had no electricity so no telecoms nor other ways of being connected beyond the village;

leapfrog models - when mobile is your first telecom; when solar is your first elecetricuty ; when cashless is your first bank ...

bangladesh was one of the first nations to test how to use mobile with world poorest womens networks; most leapfrog market models can benchmark an ultra goals version that brac has helped linkin - start with the developing worlds largest cashless bank using mp3 tech

BRAC PRIMARY SCHOOLS 5.3 million girl alumni of BRAC

A second chance at education 
Over the past 29 years, the number of BPS has grown exponentially. We started working in 1985, opening 22 one-room schools and providing three years of schooling up to class 3, which was later extended to class 5. The main objective of non-formal primary schools is to develop a school model for the underprivileged and primary school dropout children, especially girls, to complete the five-year primary school syllabus in four years.


BRAC also works with other development organisations to expand education opportunities for disadvantaged children by partnering with them and providing them with technical and financial support to implement BRAC’s non-formal primary education model with changes as needed. These collaboration activities are called education support programmes.

Key features

  • The one-teacher school is operated by the same teacher for the same cohort of children for a period of four years and delivers lessons in all subjects
  • The school hours are flexible and fixed according to needs
  • Children do not pay any fees and there are no long holidays
  • Little or no homework as most of their parents are not capable of assisting them
  • Children with special needs receive corrective surgeries along with devices like wheelchairs, hearing aids, glasses and ramps
  • Children belonging to ethnic communities receive class lectures and course materials in their own languages up to class 2 so that they can overcome language barriers and cultural gaps
  • BRAC develops textbooks and other materials for up to class 3 and government textbooks are used in classes 4 and 5
  • Students are taught about social values and their rights and responsibilities coupled with basic financial education to empower them
  • BRAC primary school graduates are being tracked by BRAC for further study

Mechanism to ensure quality of teaching
A typical BRAC teacher is a woman from the community in which the school is, with 10 years of schooling experience. Teachers undergo an initial 12-day training course in order to repeat basic information on teaching and learning and to enhance their teaching abilities. They subsequently participate in monthly, subject-based refresher courses and yearly orientation prior to advancing to the next class. In collaboration with BRAC University’s Centre for Language (CfL), BRAC provides a two-month long (21 days each) teacher training programme in English to the teachers.

What is the linkage with the government education system?
Bangladesh government has allowed BPS students to appear for Primary Education Terminal Examination which is a fundamental board examination that takes place at the end of class 5.

The effectiveness of this programme was evident when the graduates of the non-formal schools were well ahead of the country average when it came to passing grade for the primary school examination - 97 per cent success rate in 2009, and 99.54 per cent in 2010.

How do we track graduates at secondary schools?
BRAC experienced that its graduates admitted in secondary schools often cannot complete their education due to many critical circumstances. We started the ‘tracking of BRAC graduates at secondary schools’ programme to ensure their enrolment at the secondary level, promote regular attendance, reduce dropout rate so that they successfully complete the course.

BRAC is also regularly in touch with secondary school authorities and other organisations to manage scholarships and full/half free education for BPS graduates.
